The model specifies that she experienced a rare side effect called paradoxical lip hyperplasia (PAH) after the procedures, which causes swelling in the areas that were treated. “HAP has not only destroyed my livelihood, but has plunged me into a cycle of deep depression and deep sadness (…). During the process, I became reclusive.”
