There's a warning about a new Facebook craze, DIY lip jobs!

You've probably seen a few videos on Facebook feeling your feed, where teenagers are sucking the air out of bottle tops over their lips to make them swell up and look bigger in attempt to look like model Kylie Jenner.

Inflammation and Scarring 

Peter Brooks is a plastic surgeon at Nottingham University Hospital NHS Trust:

'Blood vessels are fragile and once you start to damage them, which you can do clearly with this technique as I've seen evidence that that's happened, you will end up with inflammation.

'Inflammation tends to results in scarring and when you get scarring, you're going to end up with long term distortion of your lips.

'Clearly when people do it in a way that's excessive they end up with problems, I've seen evidence of people having caused genuine injury to their lips using their technique.'
