Spending 60 million injecting fillers to straighten her legs, the woman suffered serious complications
On the morning of May 6, this woman said that at the beginning of April, not confident because her legs were defective, she went to a spa in Cau Giay district to inject fresh collagen to cushion foot tissue produced in Europe.
However, in fact at that facility, the substance injected into her calves was filler.
In total, she was injected with 3ml into her calves at a cost of 60 million VND. “One day after the injection, I felt pain, my calves were swollen and red, I couldn’t lift my legs normally.” sister told.
