Face Plumping: Don’t Do This at Home

A woman in Illinois died last week after injecting herself with melted beef fat, according to Chicago radio station WLS-AM.  Fat graft injections have been a popular media subject lately and I have done several postings on this blog about the procedure.  Common sense dictates that these procedures are done in a clinical setting, performed by qualified medical personnel.  It defies reason to understand why a woman might take it upon herself to melt some beef fat on her stove and think it was safe to inject it into her face!  Apparently this was not the first time she took upon herself to conduct her own kitchen cosmetic surgery.  The Cook County Medical Examiners office has not released the autopsy finding yet.  However, it certainly goes without saying, “Don’t try this at home!”
