The 28-year-old’s list included lip fillers, chin fillers, botox and a brow lift.

Miranda spoke confidently, suggesting botox to “slim the face,” a brow lift to “open up her eyes,” and chin fillers “to make her face more heart-shaped.”

Then, alongside a recent photo, she revealed a shocking Photoshop image of Natalia Dyer with the mentioned enhancement.

Stranger Things fans were outraged by the suggestions and altered photo, as Natalia looked almost unrecognizable.

Following the backlash, Miranda deleted the viral video and uploaded an apology.

Miranda said: “I didn’t mean to offend anyone, including Natalia. I was just making suggestions, not what you need to do, but what the possibilities are.

“As an advanced injector, that’s exactly what we do. We look at faces, we grasp and we look at the possibilities. Not on what you have to do or what you have to do. They are just options.”

She called Natalia “absolutely stunning” before continuing the video by explaining how she would use cosmetic procedures to transform her own face.

Miranda has disabled comments on her videos, but outraged social media users have commented to slam her suggestions on Twitter.

One person wrote: “I can’t believe a plastic surgeon on Tiktoker had the audacity to say Natalia Dyer isn’t pretty enough as she’s like, DID YOU SEE HER? she is perfect for me.”

Another said: “First of all she has the cutest little face ever! and why would anyone think that’s ok? She is perfect just the way she is 💕social media is a scary place sometimes #StrangerThings #NataliaDyer”

A third added: “That crazy lady who gave ‘suggestions’ to Natalia Dyer’s face actually uploaded a video of herself doing the same thing to HERSELF as an ‘sorry’. But much more worrying is that prior to this incident, her videos were regularly getting 10,000 views.”
