We posted previously on Oneal Ron Morris, a transsexual charlatan who has been injecting clients with his own home brew of filler agents resulting in disastrous consequences. A victim of his facial services has surfaced:
The lumpy cheeks, misshapen chin and ballooning upper lip are still visible on Rajee Narinesingh’s face; more than two years after she says she received a backroom cosmetic procedure from a man police say performed numerous, botched, unlicensed procedures. “I had to end up going to surgery, to get me even to this point,” Narinesingh told CBS4′s Gary Nelson Monday, pointing to the disfigurement she still is trying to have reversed. Narinesingh is among multiple alleged victims of Oneal Ron Morris, a transsexual who is alleged to have performed cosmetic procedures in homes and apartments.
Rajee Narinesingh apparently met Oneal Ron Morris via referral in the transsexual community. She likely did not bother to look into Morris’ credentials. Reportedly she allowed Morris to provide a series of facial injections of a concoction of commercially available agents that you could buy at Home Depot. These injections appear to have reacted with her facial tissues resulting in lumps and bumps that will likely only be able to be removed in part in order to prevent further degradation of her appearance.
Despite the fact that filler injections can be offered by non-physicians, patients need to be diligent in choosing their providers. When you go cheap, you are entertaining the potential for significant risk and may obtain results that might not be easily subject to repair. Qualified doctors do not do incredibly cheap work in hotel rooms and apartments.
When you go this route, permanent disfigurement or even death might follow. This isn’t grand standing. It is the truth.
Plastic surgery risk can be minimized, but not when you go to the dark dingy corner of a seedy motel for treatment. You need to go to a skilled professional or not go at all.
