A former Korean model addicted to plastic surgery injected cooking oil into her face when doctors refused to perform any more cosmetic operations on her.
Hang Mioku, now about 50 years old, has been left with an badly disfigured face following her desperate attempt to attain softer and smoother skin.
Mioku had her first plastic surgery when she was 28 years old, and soon became obsessed. She moved to Japan to pursue her career and underwent several more bouts of surgery, Mail Online reports.
However, after undergoing repeated operations to enhance her looks, doctors refused to provide her with any more silicone injections when her face became noticeably enlarged.
A desperate Mioku then injected an entire bottle of black market silicone into her face and finally decided to inject cooking oil, leaving her cheeks and forehead severely swollen and scarred.
Following the do-it-yourself beauty treatment, Mioku was left so disfigured that her own parents could not recognise her. When doctors analysed her, it was confirmed she was suffering from a psychological disorder.
Once Mioku's condition was featured on Korean television, thousands of viewers came forward to donate money for surgery to repair her battered skin.
During the course of surgery, which spanned 10 operations, doctors removed 60g of silicone, oil and other foreign substances from Mioku's face and 200g from her neck.
However, while the swelling on Mioku's face has been reduced, the skin remains badly disfigured.
