Playing Are These Dangerous New Beauty Trends?

The Doctors have seen nearly every cosmetic surgery trend out there and they are warning about the potential dangers of elective surgeries like a forehead reduction.

Camilla shared she had a forehead reduction surgery to reduce the size of her forehead by 3 centimeters. Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon reveals if she had come to him for the procedure, he would have rejected the request. Instead of undergoing surgery, he would have suggested she first try fillers or injections.

The Doctors note forehead reduction surgery, which is not usually a medically necessary procedure, could lead to a scar, loss of blood flow to the hairline, and a possible loss of sensation or feeling along the forehead area.

"Every surgery has a risk," Dr. Jackie Walters stresses.

Another beauty trend that has gained popularity is DIY facial injections, something The Doctors strongly warn against.

"You have to know exactly where things are, and where they are not," Dr. Ordon says, and Dr. Jackie notes if someone is injecting themselves, they could easily not know where a nerve, artery or vein is and cause serious damage to their body.

They also note an accredited doctor would not likely give someone filler or injection to use at home, and they stress how dangerous buying these items online or via the black market can be. The Doctors stress that patients should always go to a trained and accredited professional for all cosmetic procedures.
