An American woman has shared the moment she was left with “The Grinch” lips after her cosmetic injection didn’t go as planned.
Documenting her reaction, 22 year old Briana took to her TikTok account to show off her new lips.
Wide-eyed and with her hand covering her mouth, Briana teased the result of her filler.
“You guys, I just got lip filler and it’s so f****** swollen, is this bad?” she asked.
The young woman then slowly removed her hand revealing the result of her recent cosmetic procedure.

Turning to the side to show off her profile, her upper lip appeared swollen, bruised and lumpy.
Many concerned people quickly pointed out her reaction to the procedure was “not normal” with some even suggesting she should seek medical attention.
“I would check and make sure you aren’t having an adverse reaction to the filler just to be safe,” one said.
“Lol for all you ladies saying this type of swelling with filler is normal. HUH? Pick a different aesthetician boo,” agreed another.
But amongst the worry, an overwhelming amount of viewers were quick to draw a comparison between the woman’s new look and the Christmas movie classic, The Grinch.
“Cindy Lou Who!!! Right in time for Christmas,” one wrote
“Giving Grinch for Christmas,” another said.
“Welcome to Whoville,” one agreed.
However, Briana couldn’t help but laugh along with the comments assuring everyone the video was in good fun and her lips have since well and truly healed.
“I talked to my doctor and he said it was fine that I wasn’t having an allergic reaction or anything,” she said.
“I just get really swollen.”
Briana went on to explain the swelling was brought down by icing her lips for two days straight.

But despite Briana’s explanation, the original video has still received more than one million views with many sharing jokes about Briana’s plump lips.
“Giving Kris Jenner vibes,” one commented.
“Getting Ducky from The Land Before Times vibes,” another joked.
But Briana continues to view the video in good light “I just thought I looked hilarious and would share it with you guys.”
