It is necessary to point out that technically an eyeball is picked up off the ground and eaten, but you never see it removed from a person

It's right at the end of the movie. There is a whole lot of gagging before it happens. I will say that the actual vomit part is over quickly but the, uh, aftermath... is visible for a while and is especially grotesque. It's kind of necessary to understand the end of the plot but just Wikipedia it...

Though the word "dysmorphia" is never used, body image and associated topics are frequent issues in this movie.

There are multiple scenes where Gigi discusses her need for frequent plastic surgery, including accepting any and all criticism of her body by her surgeon which may be triggering for people dealing with body dysmorphic disorder or related problems.

No but there is a scene where a woman lies on her back, spreads her legs and blood gushes out of her vagina (actual genitalia not visible). It is somewhat reminiscent of birthing.

Not a miscarriage but an abundance of blood is expelled from between a character's legs and could possibly be extremely triggering to someone sensitive to that.

The only *explicitly* LGBTQ character lives. However, there is a somewhat sapphic shower scene between two characters (no actual wlw sex, kissing or even touching though) and one of them dies later. Also a different character who later dies kinda implies she might be attracted to a woman but it’s unclear if she was lying to diffuse an uncomfortable situation.
