Kailee Jones, an American woman who is a technology graduate suffered such an extreme allergic reaction to fillers that her lips ballooned 'eight times' their normal size - leaving her looking like a Monsters, Inc. character, according to Daily Mail UK.

Kailee Jones from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, got fillers for the first time in November last year, feeling that her lips were disproportionately small compared to the rest of her facial features.

The 23-year-old got 1ml injected across her top and bottom lips and she says that within an hour of the appointment her lips began to swell rapidly.

She believes she had an allergic reaction to the filler and says her attempts to calm the swelling with ice seemed to make it worse.

The technology consultant then spent the next 48 hours unable to talk or drink normally due to the incredibly sore and swollen 'sausage lips'.

Many of her pals pointed out that the swelling made her look like the character Fungus from the Disney Pixar film, Monsters, Inc.

The three-eyed villain is left with giant, red lips after being sucked into a 'scream extractor' machine.

The consultant has now shared shocking photos of her giant lips to warn people about the risks of allergic reactions to filler.

Kailee said: 'I've always had thinner lips and they disappear when I smile so I wanted to make them fit my face a little bit more.


'Everything went well at the appointment and the first hour after it started swelling but I think it was just normal because they do swell.

'I kept icing them and I think that the ice might have made it worse because then they really started to blow up.


'Once it hit after an hour or two they were really big and then it was 48 hours of them being that big.


'I couldn't drink anything or even open my mouth to talk - I couldn't speak.


'I would say they were eight times the size of my normal lips, it was unreal. I looked like the Monsters, Inc. character.'

After her lips ballooned and became extremely painful, Kailee called her doctor for some advice and was prescribed a week-long course of oral steroids to calm the swelling.

The doctor also warned her that she was at risk of her throat closing due to the dramatic swelling on her lips, which they worried may travel to her neck.

But thankfully the swelling began to subside after three days and the reaction passed without needing further treatment or for the filler to be dissolved
