Cosmetic surgery addict injected cooking oil into her own face

A Korean woman addicted to plastic surgery has been left unrecognisable
after her obsession led her to inject cooking oil into her face.

Hang Mioku, now 48, had her first plastic surgery procedure when she was
28; hooked from the beginning she moved to Japan where she had further
operations - mostly to her face.

Following operation after operation, her face was eventually left enlarged
and disfigured, but she would still look at herself in the mirror and think
she was beautiful.

Eventually the surgeons she visited refused to carry out any more work on
her and one suggested that her obsession could be a sign of a
psychological disorder.

When she returned home to Korea the surgery meant Hang's features had
changed so much that her own parents didn't recognise her.

After realising that the girl with the grossly swollen face was indeed their
daughter her horrified parents took her to a doctor. Once again the
possibility that Hang had a mental disorder was raised and she started

However, this treatment was too expensive for her to keep up and she
soon fell back into old ways.

Amazingly, she found a doctor who was willing to give her silicone injects
and, what's more, he then gave her a syringe and silicone of her own so
she could self-inject.

When her supply of silicone ran out Hang resorted to injecting cooking oil
into her face.

Her face became so grotesquely large that she was called "standing fan"
by children in her neighbourhood - due to her large face and small body.

As Hang's notoriety spread she was featured on Korean TV. Viewers
seeing the report took mercy on her and sent in enough donations to
enable her to have surgery to reduce the size of her face.

During the first procedure surgeons removed 60g of foreign substance
from Hang's face and 200g from her neck.

After several other sessions her face was left greatly reduced but still
scarred and disfigured.

And it would seem that even Hang can now see the damage she has
done; she now says that she would simply like her original face back.
