Who is Kelsey Salmon?
Kelsey Salmon is an American woman who is pretty big on TikTok.
She has 141,000 followers on her profile @kelseysalmon.
Recently, she has gone viral after sharing her terrifying eyelash extension experience.
Here’s what happened…
Kelsey loses eyelid at eyelash appointment
On May 29th, Kelsey took to TikTok to explain her “worst lash extension experience”, revealing that she completely lost her eyelid after getting bitten by a dog at the appointment.
“No eyelid. Can’t even close my eye. Yeah, that’s me. Literally, no eyelid,” she said before adding a series of very graphic images of her eye.
She then revealed that she had surgery to reattach her eyelid, and her eye was then sewn shut for ten days to heal.
In part two, she explained exactly what happened.
Many people assumed that she lost her eyelid because of the eyelash extensions, but this isn’t actually the case. However, the accident did happen at her eyelash technician’s house.
“She had a Chihuahua… he jumped up and bit me in the face. It happened so fast, I didn’t know what he grabbed. And my eyelid was on the floor,” she said.
After Kelsey was bitten by the dog, the eyelash technician called 911, and Kelsey was taken to the Emergency Room where she had to stay for 15 hours on her birthday and get the eyelid reattached.
For the last few weeks, Kelsey has continued to document her recovery on TikTok.
Her videos are a little too graphic to insert here, but if you want to watch exactly what happened, you can do so on her profile.

“This girl on TikTok got her eyelid bit off by a dog and I feel so bad for her I really hope it heals properly (they sewed it back on),” another person added.

“This girl on TikTok was getting her lashes done at this girls house and the girl’s dog f***ing jumped up on the table and BIT OFF her eyelid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! hell noooooo!!!!” tweeted another.
