I got second-degree burns from jaw-sculpting surgery to give me a thinner face, I might be scarred for life & can’t talk

Victoria Quezada, from Sacramento, California, took to TikTok to share her traumatic experience. She explained that she decided to try the non-invasive beauty therapy of CoolSculpting.

CoolSculpting is a treatment known as cryolipolysis, which freezes fat cells in the targeted area and kills them.

Supposedly, the treatment can get rid of up to 20–25% of stubborn fat. Sounds harmless enough, right?

Victoria claims in her video that the treatment she received back in April has left her permanently scarred. She is currently considering legal action against the clinic, which she has not named.

Victoria starts the video with a picture of her two weeks before the therapy, saying that she never really had a defined jawline but sorted out this treatment because it just helped define her jaw’s natural shape.

She says, “Fast forward a week and two ER visits later, and here we are.”

Victoria gives viewers a warning before she reveals her burns: it is very graphic. She says, “My voice is even gone because my throat has swelled so much it’s affected my vocal chords.”

She alleges that CoolSculpting left her with blisters and burns underneath her chin, saying that she doesn’t even have a defined jawline and has been left with an overall swollen face. The video has garnered over 1.1 million views and racked up over 143,000 likes.

People shared their horror at Victoria’s results, with many saying she should pursue legal action against the clinic that did her treatment for malpractice.

One woman, who identified herself as an esthetician, said, “As an esthetician, I can legitimately tell you this was done incorrectly. I have never seen this. Please contact legal representation immediately.”

Another said, “There is a COOLSCUPLTING specialist here. I’m so sorry, love. My guess is they forgot the liner and the gel trap, which means your skin was not protected.”

Victoria pleads with people to help her, as she says that it’s really hard for her to look at herself.
