Lip filler is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures around at the moment, but that doesn't mean it's not without its risks.
In the video, the TikToker can be seen before and after the common procedure, and let's just say that she got a lot more than she bargained for size-wise when she got her fillers.
Instead of receiving a natural-looking, fuller pout, the young woman, who posts under the handle @tessackells, looks like she's in some serious pain, with swollen, painful-looking lips.
She overlaid the video with a song that goes: "Oh no, no no no no."
It was also captioned: "When you get your lips done..."
The video went far from unnoticed on the social media platform since it was posted last month, and it has been viewed more than 200K times.
Viewers were quick to take to the comments section to share their horror at the results.
Reacting to the unexpectedly disastrous filler results, one TikTok user wrote: "My jaw literally dropped."
"I don't wanna get mine done anymore," added a second alongside a crying emoji, while a third wrote: "This is what I'm scared of."
"Aww. People need to start leaving their face alone," remarked a fourth.
A fifth speculated: "It could be a histamine reaction. I get that. Mine have swelled up ridiculously huge."
"Mine did this," shared a sixth, who clearly wasn't put off the first time it happened. "Both times! haven't dared get them done again. Nope nope nope!"
However, a seventh said that what the TikToker was experiencing was actually normal.
They wrote: "Yes they swell and bruise but your practitioner tell you this before hand [sic]."
As reported by the NHS, the process of getting fillers is expected to be an uncomfortable one, but it should not leave a person in pain.
The medical body explained that if you do experience swelling and bruising, it will go down after a few days and there are some steps you can take to speed up the healing process.
They said that this will include avoiding makeup until the fillers have healed, as well as potentially toxic substances like alcohol, coffee, and exposure to sunlight.
However, while some swelling is normal, complications are a possibility and they include infection and scarring.
