A young mother wanted to look better
According to The Sun, Dilber had wanted lip filler and saw the beautician’s Instagram posts.

He told The Sun what happened.
Woman dies after lip filler procedure
Unfortunately, Dilber died the day after being taken to the hospital because she was experiencing terrible headaches
Her cause of death was heart failure, just two weeks after the botched cosmetic treatment.
Her story is one of thousands, highlighting the dangers of unregulated lip filler procedures.
People have been left to deal with rotted tissue, lip amputations and lumps. Some have even been blinded by incompetent practitioners.
Dilber’s family speaks out
After the procedure, Dilber, a young mother from Vienna, Austria, began experiencing severe headaches.
Murat rushed his wife to the hospital, but the doctors allegedly refused to admit her.
He said now their daughter will have to grow up without a mother.
He told The Sun: «Now the little one has to grow up without her mum [and] my life was taken away from me!»
Doctors deny the hospital was negligent
Dilber’s family accused the hospital of negligence, leading to Dilber’s death.
The victim’s mother told the media that they were reluctant to treat her daughter: «We begged the doctor to finally let her in.»
In a press release on November 16, Lothar Mayerhofer, director of the Donaustadt hospital, denied all allegations.
«There are clear signs of a terrible autoimmune disease,» he said.
Dilber suffered from an autoimmune disease
«The patient died during ongoing therapy. We couldn’t do anything for her,» Mayerhofer said in a statement.
He suspected that an autoimmune disease Dilber suffered from was likely caused by the botched cosmetic procedure.
Mayerhofer said: «If there is one lesson to be learned from this tragic course of events, it is that it is dangerous to take amateur medications»
The head physician at the Donaustadt hospital, Regina Katzenschlager, claimed that Dilber had visited the “Instagram beautician” two times.
The danger of unlicensed practitioners
The Instagram beautician, an unidentified woman from Slovakia, disappeared after the incident.
According to The Sun, In Europe, dermal fillers, considered medical devices, do not undergo the same clinical trials as Botox.
Unlike Botox, dermal fillers do not require a prescription in Europe, making it possible for anyone to administer them..
Previously, it was decided that fillers could not be injected without a license, in a victory for the ‘Had Our Fill’ campaign.
