Body Fixers Warn About Botched Lip Fillers

Call for Single Register of Practitioners

juvederm fillers syringeBody Fixers cosmetic doctor, Tijion Esho, told BBC Newsbeat that he’s been horrified by some of the botched lip fillers he’s had to correct.

He wants to see better protection for patients with a single register of practitioners, monitored by the government and ‘legal implications’ for those who flout regulations.

At present, for dermal and lip fillers, there are no legal requirements for qualifications, training or membership of any kind of body. Anybody can carry out these treatments.

That’s why patients are urged to do lots of research and choose a qualified doctor for any cosmetic treatments. Dr Esho also advises patients to check on the insurance of the person doing the treatment, look at reviews and speak to previous clients.

Dr Esho explains:

“When you inject in that area with a skilled hand, you can enhance areas, you can plump areas, you can reshape areas.

“In good hands it does have benefits to correct deformities and also enhance areas that you may not be happy with.

“But in the wrong hands it does have the potential to cause a lot of damage.”

He goes on to say:

“If you’re of a consenting age and you’ve thought it through and it’s something you really do want, then do the research and do it properly and make sure you’re in the safest hands. Make sure it’s a medical professional that’s treating you. There are no shortcuts when it comes to your face. You only have one, so don’t shop for a bargain with that.

“Go to the best possible person. And the final question should be, ‘What will you do if things go wrong?’ That’s a very important question to answer. If they’re not able to answer that question for you, you need to walk out of the door.”
