Rachael made the media headlines in late 2018 and 2019 currently, for having undergone a lip filler treatment with a beautician who had no medical training or experience in resolving or dealing with complications. As a result of the sub standard treatment, Rachael suffered a horrific injury to her lips culminating in a trip to A&E and having to seek out urgent private medical care with The Consultant Clinic to address and rectify the damage her lips had undergone.
As a result of her traumatic experience, she has made the brave decision to publicly speak out to the press and media, in a bid to create awareness, her objective is to demonstrate to the public the dangers of poorly trained inexperienced individuals offering aesthetic treatments to the public.
