Woman Injects Cooking Oil Into Face
A Korean woman is responsible for her own cosmetic procedure nightmare after she injected cooking oil into her face, London's Daily Telegraph reported.
Doctors removed more than 2 ounces of cooking oil from Hang Mioku's face and more than 7 ounces from her neck after her botched attempt to achieve eternal youth left her face severely enlarged and disfigured.
Hang, 48, first had plastic surgery 20 years ago.
She moved to Japan and underwent several more surgeries, mostly to her face, until she became unrecognizable, according to the Telegraph.
Hang's own parents didn't know who she was when she returned home to Korea.
But that didn't stop her from wanting more.
Hang managed to find a doctor who was willing to give her silicone injections and even supplied her with a syringe and silicone so she could inject herself.
When she ran out of silicone, Hang decided to substitute cooking oil, the Telegraph reported.
