'Teen Mom' Farrah Abraham posts pics of lip enhancement gone wrong

Check out reality and porn star Farrah Abraham's botched lip enhancement

If Farrah Abraham weren't a cautionary tale before, she is now -- at least when it comes to plastic surgery.

The star of "Teen Mom," "Teen Mom 2" and that 2013 teen-mom sex tape posted pics Tuesday on social media showing what happens when lip enhancement goes wrong.

The duck-face result is anything but sexy.

"Gotta love my new look," she wrote on Twitter with a photo comparing her distorted profile to that of animated "Futurama" character Turanga Leela.

In the pics, the 23-year-old's massively swollen upper lip protrudes over her lower one. Unlike Leela, the reality star has two eyes. Unlike Abraham, the cartoon character appears not to have any sex toys molded in her likeness.

Two other photos, shown above, went up on Facebook with a cautionary message: "Girlfriends don't say I didn't warn ya ! #BOTCHED California #ER #fixit."

Abraham, who told Life & Style in 2013 that she'd tried collagen injections in her lips, apparently was undergoing a different type of cosmetic procedure where an implant is put into the lip, TMZ reported. An injection of anesthetic before the procedure caused the dramatic allergic reaction, the site said.

Maybe if original estimates of her sex-tape salary had been accurate, she wouldn't have opted for a procedure aimed at saving money on lip-filler injections?

In addition to lip work, a nose job and chin implant surgery (since reversed), Abraham had her breasts surgically enhanced.

No massive swelling there. Well, nothing that wasn't intentional.
