The desire for plastic surgery often stems from insecurity and the subjective nature of beauty that some people experience about how they look.
Although normal, it can sometimes be a serious problem if someone is dissatisfied with some aspect of their physical appearance, becomes obsessed with meeting certain beauty standards, and plastic surgery becomes the center of their life.
Although plastic surgery, like any other surgical procedure, involves risks and regardless of the desired results, there can be fatal results to complications that affect the health and quality of life of people forever.
Just like the 43-year-old beauty queen, a finalist in the Miss Russia International pageant two years ago, who decided to undergo plastic surgery at one of the “best clinics” for a cost equivalent to $4,000.
I came to them with a beautiful and healthy face. I just wanted to correct some shading caused by aging. But sadly, I lost my health.
Yulia stated that she was left “disfigured” during facelift surgery, eyelid rejuvenation, removal of excess skin and reduction of cheek fat. She even had to undergo emergency surgery by another doctor to save her eyes from necrosis.
The surgeons, Andrey Komarov and Omar Khaled, denied responsibility, claiming that Yulia suffers from scleroderma, a rare genetic condition that causes hardening of the skin. But with no evidence that she suffers from the autoimmune disease, which also affects other organs of the body, the beauty queen decided to sue them for medical malpractice.
I have scars that formed on my cheeks when all the tissue was ripped out. My eyes won’t close and I can’t smile. I can’t lift my upper lip. A part of my face doesn’t work at all.
Yulia said that she felt calm before the procedure because the results of all her tests were in order and because she had previously undergone rhinoplasty without any complications.
So it seems unfair to him that doctors want to disclaim their responsibility and attribute the terrible results to a condition that he does not have. Andrey Komarov was one of the two surgeons who participated in the negligent operation.
For his part, the surgeon Omar Khaled has denied responsibility and has declared that the case has been “exaggerated”.
Fortunately, Russia’s Investigative Committee said the surgeons are already being investigated and other patients who may have suffered poor quality services at the same clinic have been identified.
So far, Yulia has spent approximately $27,000 on her recovery, an amount far removed from the cost of procedures that should have gone smoothly had it not been for the medical negligence she suffered.
