Former beauty queen Tracie Samara was left bruised, swollen and nearly blinded from getting silicone fillers in her face.
The then-44-year-old opted for a free, non-invasive face procedure by a Miami doctor because she wanted to return to her youthful appearance from when she modeled.
The fillers were so bad that an infection formed deep into the tissues causing pain and extreme discomfort along with bruising.
Eleven years later, she is still working on getting her face back to normal from the damage the injections caused.
The use of facial fillers is the second most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States.
Daily Mail Online spoke with Dr David Shafer, a double board certified plastic surgeon in NYC, who warns about the dangers of ‘do it yourself’ procedures and using doctors who are not certified.
