A nip here and a tuck there. Plastic surgery techniques have never been better at turning back the clock.
But many of those procedures are expensive. More than $15 billion was spent on cosmetic procedures last year alone.
Now doctors see some disturbing trends as more people look to cut corners with sometimes dangerous results.
“We’re certainly seeing a lot of things that people are injecting or putting into themselves that are not legal and should not be put into your body,” explained Dr. John Martin, a cosmetic, ophthalmic and facial plastic surgeon.
Doctor Martin says “do-it-yourself” videos on YouTube are a disturbing trend.
“They watch a video and it makes it look pretty easy. You just put a little injection in here. How hard could that be,” said Dr. Martin.
But experts warn permanent disfigurement is a real possibility. Is it worth it?
