Plastic and cosmetic surgery has helped millions of people. And when done correctly and safely, the risks are usually minimal. Of course, with any kind of surgery, there’s always the risk of infection or injury. But that’s a risk plenty of people are willing to take in order to change something about their physical appearance. However, it’s always a good idea to remember: if a procedure is controversial or banned in some countries, it’s probably for a really good reason. Instagram model Nadinne Bruna found that out the hard way, and will live with the repercussions for the rest of her life.
32-year-old Nadinne makes her living off her face and body. But a couple of bad decisions have compromised her career, and so much more. The Instagram model underwent a controversial procedure in an effort to change her eye color. Nadinne had dark brown eyes, and she wanted them to be light gray. She flew to Colombia to have a retinal transplant done, and almost immediately, things didn’t go as planned. Now she’s left trying to fix the damage done to her eyes. At 32, Nadinne has the eyesight of a 90-year-old.
