An adult film star was rushed to the hospital and feared she might die after a lip job left her with abnormally swollen lips.
Kirsty Collins, 33 – who is known as Bambi Black to fans – paid £300 to have her lips injected with hyaluronidase to remove her existing filler so she could start all over again. But she developed an allergic reaction to the injection, causing her lips to swell to at least 4 times its natural size.
She was rushed to Doncaster Royal Infirmary, where doctors gave her steroids and antihistamines, to combat her extreme reaction, before putting her “on watch” for seven hours.
Narrating the ordeal, she said: “Within minutes of having the injection I didn’t feel right at all, I started to panic and my heart was beating right out of my chest.”
She continued: “I knew from the get-go something wasn’t right, as within seconds of the beautician injecting my upper lip, I felt this burning sensation begin to spread across my face. The next thing I knew, my upper lip was growing before my very eyes. I could see and feel it getting bigger and bigger. Luckily my manager was with me and insisted on calling an ambulance, so within half-an-hour I was in the emergency room.”
Kirsty is no stranger to surgery and she explained she goes under the knife often because of the demands of the industry she works in.
She said: “The industry demands that stars have cosmetic surgery, there’s no two ways about it. The porn look fans want can only be achieved one way – through plastic surgery. If you want to stay on top of the game, you’ve got to beat the competition, and the only way to do that is by getting bigger and better – quite literally.”
Kirtsy’s lips went back to normal after a week and she shared her story on social media. She says her terrifying ordeal will not make her give up her cosmetic surgery addiction.
She said: “I love plastic surgery and I always will, I’m scheduled in for my next round of lip filler next week. I’ve got a Brazilian butt-lift planned for later this year and I’m already looking at my third boob job.”
She added: “Knowing me, I’ll be on my death bed and asking for one last nip tuck.”
