She decided to inject heated beef fat around her mouth and chin in order to reduce wrinkles. Family members said that she had undergone the procedure a number of times.

Hardt got herself admitted to a hospital after complaining that her face felt as if it was burning. Health authorities said that the injected did not cause her death and it was in fact caused due to bacterial infection in her mouth and lips and also due to scarring from the infection.
