I will say this for Dr. Lawrence Birnbaum, he's good at Botox injections, however if you're thinking of having him do fillers in your face, run for the hills. My girlfriend went to him and was raving about some new filler he injected in her brow and lips. She said it' made her look
So much younger. I stupidly listened to her, as she could sell Cheese to the moon and went to see him. He had a new product from Switzerland. I think it was
called Kopolymer. I tried researching this and couldn't find anything negative in it at that time. This was about 7 years ago. He told me it was semi-permanent, which
should've made me run for the hills. He had me sign a waiver in case I wasn't happy. I did sign it and agreed to it. I admit my stupidity but would like to save
someone else from going through what I did. I am an actress and made my living in films and commercials mainly. The filler blew my lips up and they would dwell

Felt there was nothing I could do. Finally I went to a gifted artistic plastic surgeon who was able to cut some of it out and reshaped my filtrum area. I wanted more cut out and he said it was dangerous as he wasn't sure what the product was and it could go into the bloodstream and cause problems. Even though I signed a waiver, I had no idea that he would make me look so ugly. He's not really a nice man and that should've been an indication. He kept talking about his beautiful wife and telling me that she was The most beautiful woman in the world, however she'd had some filler out in her lips which made them huge and he wanted to cut it out. He seemed to be wanting to make me look horrible so that his wife would look better. I am venting yes, but I'm finally facing my fears and telling the world. Run, don't walk.
