Woman left looking constantly upset after a botched £920 plastic surgery job left her with a 'permanent frown'

A WOMAN has been left looking constantly upset after a botched plastic surgery job left her with what she called a “permanent frown”. 

The young Chinese woman, known by her surname Xie, forked out £920 for cheek fillers after a facelift – and was less than impressed with the results.

Xie now looks constantly confused, and opened up about the cosmetic nightmare in a video released by local media. 

She went to a clinic in Hangzhou city in eastern China, where consultants persuaded her to get the cheek fillers as well as a facelift to “boost the effect”. 

The clinic said the frowning expression is down to swelling, and would naturally disappear over time, but that hasn’t stopped Xie being horrified at the results. 

Xie told Zhejiang Television: “I had my nose done previously, but it was kind of a failure. 

“[After the repair,] the shape of my nose looked much better than before. I thought this clinic was trustworthy.”

She returned for the facelift on May 7 and was persuaded to add on the cheek fillers, with the consultant saying they would look natural and would not require much recovery time. 

Xie explained: “They told me if I do [the procedures] altogether, the effect would be much better.”

The two facial operations cost her a total of £2,300, and she has been left furious that she has a permanent frown two weeks after the procedures. 

She said: “The corners of my eyes are being lifted upwards. I'm unhappy about the shape of my face [as well]. I look quite scary.”

Xie has demanded the clinic gives her a refund for the facial fillers, but a manager from the beauty centre has said they will only claim full responsibility if her face remains swollen after a month. 

They have also offered her extra treatments for free, but Xie has said she will not return to the clinic for further work. 

The manager said the swelling is down to having multiple procedures in a short space of time, and it’ll take longer than normal for Xie’s face to go down. 

He said: “Because she had surgery along with the fillers, the final result still hasn't shown. Once she fully recovers, it would look much nicer.”

He also claimed the staff members who advised her to get the cheek fillers were “new and inexperienced”.

Report says Brits are looking out for neighbours more than ever

So THIS is when neighbours become good friends! Report says locked-down Britons are looking out for the vulnerable and talking to those next door more than ever in coronavirus crisis

  • Three quarters of adults now know which neighbours are at risk of coronavirus 
  • Over a fifth of UK adults say they now speak to those living next to them more
  • Many people are talking over the phone or speaking to neighbours over a fence
  • Study into the changing relationships revealed improved friendships  
  • Here’s how to help people impacted by Covid-19

The coronavirus lockdown has led to a surge in neighbourliness as people look out for the vulnerable and talk to those next door more than ever before.

Following the Government’s instruction last month to stay at home, many neighbours are becoming good friends, said a report by Co-op Insurance.

A survey of more than 2,100 adults found that three out of four now know which of their neighbours are classed as high risk and over a quarter have checked in on neighbours in the last few weeks.

Neighbours around the country are bonding and forming friendships during the crisis

Over a fifth of UK adults who know at least some of their neighbours said they have spoken to them more in the last few weeks than they did previously.

Around one in six of those who know their neighbours said their relationship had become better in the last few weeks.

Many people said they had chatted over the fence or phone to neighbours recently and more than one in 10 have dropped off shopping or essential medicine.

Andrew Nevitt of Co-op Insurance said: ‘It’s heartening to hear that so many people are looking out for one another during this time of crisis.

‘For the last two years we’ve recognised and celebrated the UK’s best neighbours and it’s so encouraging that at such a difficult time people across communities are stepping up to help their neighbours more so now than ever before.’

The study is the Co-op’s third to investigate the changing nature of neighbourhoods and what it means to be a good neighbour.

US officials looking into whether coronavirus escaped from a lab in China

US officials are reportedly looking into the possibility that the coronavirus did not originate in a wet market in Wuhan but actually escaped from a lab experimenting on the deadly illness.

There is “increasing confidence” among officials that the Wuhan Institute of Virology lab is the original site of the virus after a report said Embassy officials warned in January 2018 about inadequate safety there, according to Fox News.

President Trump did not directly address the “theory” during a White House press conference on Wednesday.

“It should be no surprise to you that we have taken a keen interest in that and we’ve had a lot of intelligence take a hard look at that,” Gen. Mark Milley, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told Fox about the Wuhan lab.

“I would just say at this point, it’s inconclusive, although the weight of evidence seems to indicate natural, but we don’t know for certain.”

The theory was the latest attempt by Trump to shift the blame to China after criticism over his inaction as the virus spread across the country.

Juventus looking to snap-up 18-year-old Santos wonderkid Kaio Jorge dubbed the ‘new Cristiano Ronaldo’ – The Sun

JUVENTUS have reportedly set their sights on signing Santos starlet Kaio Jorge.

The 18-year-old, who has been tipped to be the next Cristiano Ronaldo, has attracted interest from a number of clubs in Europe.

According to Goal, the Italian giants are prepared to step up their pursuit for the talented youngster.

Juventus will have to activate his €50 (£43m) release clause if they want to lure him away from his homeland.

Jorge joined Santos' youth set up in 2012 and is under contract with the Brazilian club until December 2021.

But Juventus are not the only club that are keeping a close eye on the 2019 Under-17 World Cup winner.

The 18-year-old continued to impress for Santos as he scored the winner in Tuesday's Copa Libertadores clash.

Jorge scored in the 86th minute to make it 2-1 on his fourth senior appearance for the club.

He has been likened to Ronaldo because of his superb technique, quick feet and strong aerial ability.

Maurizio Sarri is keen to strengthen his Juventus side as a number of his players have been linked with other clubs.

Athletic Bilbao are reportedly plotting a summer move for Gonzalo Higuain once his current deal with Juventus expires.

And Arsenal are reportedly leading the race to lure Merih Demiral away from Turin in the summer.
