In a shocking incident, a criminal case has been launched against Russian plastic surgeons who are accused of leaving a woman with a gaping hole in her buttock and her nipples 'in the wrong place'.
Veleslava Grigorieva, 40, said the pain was so bad after spending £25,000 to improve her looks that she needed 'to book three seats on a plane since she could not sit down for more than a few minutes'.
The case is against senior surgeons at Nudelman Cosmetology and Plastic Surgery Clinic in Ekaterinburg which could see them behing jailed for up to six years if convicted of damaging her health.
She had gone public with intimate pictures of her 'plastic surgery from hell' to force legal action from the authorities - which is now announced.
But in the process she was subject to vilification and humiliation from those who criticised her decision to use plastic surgery to regain her beauty, she said.
According to her, the initial 'botched surgery' by Igor Tsvetkov, trained partly in Canada and Sweden, left her nipples 'too high and in the wrong place' with 'ugly scars' and required corrective surgery which failed to solve the problem.
Veleslava returned to the clinic where another surgeon Nikolay Golubkov, agreed to do a new operation on her breasts and suggested she should 'improve my buttocks', she claimed.
She was given new liposuction and 'lipo-lifting' – when the buttocks are enlarged with the help of patient's own fat removed from other parts of the body.
But after weeks of appalling pain she was told by a medic at another clinic she had an abscess in one buttock but they did not want to get the blame and 'refused to help'.
Eventually she had to fly to Moscow to a new clinic where doctors 'removed much of my buttock'.
