Your face is usually the first thing someone sees when they look at you – so it's best not to take risks with it.
But if you do decide to have any work done, it's always best to make sure you're going with someone who knows what they're doing to avoid the work being botched.
Anna Brown, from Chicago, US, found out the consequences of risking her appearance the hard way.

The social media user explained she was persuaded to get filler in her chin in an attempt to balance out her face, which she felt was too round.
However, the blonde beauty was left looking more like Crimson Chin, a character on the TV show Fairly Odd Parents, as she showed followers her face before and after the procedure.
At the start of the video, which has gained more than 1.9million views, Anna shared a picture of her natural face, as she said: "I think chin filler would really even out my facial profile."
But immediately after, she showed a snap of herself after the filler, showing off her now large, pointed chin.
In the caption, she added: "I cannot believe I'm sharing this with the internet."
Following the now-viral clip, she told fans that she "truly cried" and "didn't leave the house for four days" after the blunder but has since confirmed that her chin has fully gone back to normal.
In a follow-up clip, Anna explained: “Hi, friends. It's the Crimson Chin here. I'd like to start by saying clearly, I think my chin looks just fine.
"That happened in April 2022 and it's now August 2023, so I'm good. It's gone. It's out of my face. I think they say facial fillers like that last 12 to 18 months, so it's gone."
She refused to name and shame the beautician who did the "spontaneous" procedure but said she had gone to them for lip fillers before without any issues.
However, she "could tell she had never done [chin fillers] before."
“I was totally a guinea pig – they did not know what they were doing and I was probably in there for an hour of them poking and prodding and trying to make it look even," she added.
“I knew when it was getting done, it was getting botched."
TikTok viewers were left stunned at the clip which was shared under the username @annabrowniie, as they took to the comments to give their opinion.
One person said: "Honey, you were beautiful before I don’t understand?!?!"
Another added: "That's so scary."

The NHS warns people who are considering a cosmetic procedure to do their research prior to their appointment. The website says: "Having dermal fillers is usually safe if it's done by an experienced and suitably qualified practitioner.
"Check the person doing your dermal fillers is on a register to show they meet set standards in training, skill and insurance.
"Avoid practitioners who have only completed a short training course, and book a consultation before you have the procedure."
