Izzy Anaya, who has her own TikTok account, enjoys a following of over 104,000 users on this popular platform. Recently, she narrated the ordeal that caused her considerable pain and distress.

Izzy developed skin necrosis after getting facial fillers

As reported by the British tabloid "The Sun," Izzy sought a beauty salon to enhance her appearance through facial fillers, with the notable area of focus being around her eyes. She never anticipated the agonizing turn of events that followed.

Just 24 hours after the procedure, the 43-year-old began to experience an intolerable burning sensation across her face. It felt like her skin was about to burst due to an allergic reaction to the product used.

Approximately two days post-procedure, Izzy developed skin necrosis —death of tissue— around the edges of her nose. This caused immense pain and eventually resulted in visible scars.

Even after immediate assistance from plastic surgeons, there were irreversible changes to her face. Fortunately, she was able to eliminate the scars. Now, Izzy steers clear of fillers while advising others to exercise caution.

"It's all fun and games until your face starts to fall off," Izzy stated during her chat with NeedToKnow.co.uk.

Viewers responded in large numbers to Izzy's TikTok videos. "Yes, this is my biggest nightmare with fillers. I'm too scared to try it," wrote one user.

"Oh my God, this is terrible! I’m so glad you’re better!!! Thank you for sharing this. I feel like no one talks about these things when they happen," responded another viewer.
