Farrah posted these photos to Twitter with the caption “Girlfriends don’t say I didn’t warn ya ! #BOTCHED California #ER #fixit.” Later jokingly comparing herself to Leelah of Futurama, she added “Gotta love my new look.”
According to TMZ, Farrah went to a trusted doctor to get a procedure done on her lips. She wanted an actual implant put into her lips so she no longer had to deal with the maintenance of getting her lips injected.
Farrah says she researched the doctor and the procedure. She felt safe to go ahead. However, soon after getting the work done her lips swelled up. Like in the photos.
Doctors aren’t sure what caused the reaction, for example whether the implant was defective (in an early version of their story, TMZ reported “She says the doctors injected her with an anesthetic before the procedure … and believes she had a MAJOR allergic reaction”. But that part of the allegations was retracted).
Previously, Farrah admitted to tens of thousands of dollars worth of plastic surgery including a boob job, chin implant and many more procedures that she documented in the tabloids. She even admitted to only getting work done on her chin because her doctor recommended it.
