Fillers

Mum, 29, says allergic reaction left her with ‘lips like a baboon’s butt’

Lauren Evens, from Chester, Cheshire, claimed her lips were left looking like a 'baboon's breeze' after suffering an allergic reaction to the fillers which was so severe that the swelling 'closed her airways' and made it difficult for her to breathe.

The mother claimed her lips were left looking like a ‘baboon’s butt’ after suffering an allergic reaction to the fillers which was so severe that the swelling ‘closed her airways’ and made it difficult for her to breathe.

Lauren Evens, from Chester, Cheshire, had fillers last week, but an hour later her lips began to swell, eventually becoming so ‘huge’ that she rushed to A&E at the Countess of Chester that evening.

The 29-year-old was given antihistamines, but the swelling became so severe that she stopped talking and “her airways started to close”, so she was immediately discontinued and given adrenaline.

After a painful and terrifying experience, the beauty therapist trainee, who has been drinking the filler for the past four years, wants to raise awareness that such allergies can develop at any time.

Her lips swelled to an uncomfortable size, six times the size of her normal lips, after she kept her top

In the clip, which later went viral on TikTok, the beauty lover revealed her huge lips, which she said were six times the size of her usual pout.

The beauty lover said that she will fill in her lips every six months, and this time she will add less than a millimeter.

Lauren said: “I was wearing lip cream and she was. [beautician] he did them and they were fine, but after about an hour they started to swell and were huge.’

How severe anaphylactic shock can kill in MINUTES – and can be triggered by anything from drugs, allergies – and even CONDOMS

Anaphylaxis, also known as anaphylactic shock, can kill within minutes.

It is a severe and potentially life-threatening reaction to a trigger, such as an allergy.

The reaction can often be triggered by certain foods, including peanuts and shellfish.

However, certain medications, bee stings and even the latex used in condoms can cause a life-threatening reaction.

According to the NHS, it occurs when the immune system overreacts to a trigger.

Symptoms include: feeling dizzy or faint; breathing difficulties – such as rapid, shallow breathing; wheezing; fast heartbeat; moist skin; confusion and anxiety and collapse or loss of consciousness.

It is considered a medical emergency and requires immediate treatment.

Insect stings are not dangerous for most victims, but a person does not necessarily have a pre-existing condition to be at risk.

A gradual accumulation of stings can cause a person to develop an allergy, with subsequent stings triggering an anaphylactic reaction.

“I went into anaphylactic shock. My throat began to swell, which meant that my airways began to close.’

She arrived at the hospital around 10:30 p.m. and left the following afternoon.

She explained: “I went to A&E and there was a huge wait.

“I waited for about six hours and it started coming down because I had some antihistamine.

“I fell asleep and they woke me up to give me some more antihistamine and said they were getting bigger.

‘It was scary.’

She continued: “My lips hurt a lot and I was a bit sick.

“I was fine in A&E at first… I couldn’t close my mouth and I was trying really hard to talk, but then the nurses were rushing me to resus and I couldn’t really talk at all.”

“They basically put me in a resus and gave me an adrenaline shot and it worked.

She continued: “They didn’t really tell me much and just drove me straight to resus.

“When you think about resus and you watch TV programs, you rush there when it’s life-threatening and I was like, ‘But I walked, I’m fine.

“How come I’m in this place?”

She said she was sent home with antihistamines and that although the swelling took three days to go down, her lips were still sore after five days.

The footage taken by the mother-of-two shows her lips reddened and swollen in a way that she compared them to the infamous primate’s butt.

The clip has since amassed over 23,000 likes, comments and views on TikTok.

Lauren said: “I’ve had a lot of lip fillers and treatments and I had it four weeks ago and I’ve had no reaction.

“It is not explained why this happened.

“Apparently at any age and at any time you can develop an allergy to something.

“I won’t be getting lip fillers anytime soon.

“I want to get an allergy test to see exactly what I’m allergic to, the thought of it happening again is very scary.

“I don’t know if it was the filler or the numbing cream.

“I get lip fillers for confidence, I wouldn’t tell people not to get them done if they want to get them done, but I would say be careful and it’s more that allergies can happen at any time. ‘

She said she was sent home with antihistamines and that although the swelling took three days to go down, her lips were still sore after five days

The footage, taken by the mum-of-two, shows her lips reddened and swollen to the point where she likens them to the infamous primate's butt, and has amassed more than 23,000 likes, comments and views on TikTok.
