We hear the horror stories time and time again about patients undergoing a routine cosmetic surgery procedure that leaves them deformed and suffering.
The latest report in a recent string of botched plastic surgery incidents happened to a 52-year-old mother in Thailand.
Jennifer Thai, a mother of three, was left with a gaping hole in her stomach that will take her months to recover from. Thai will also have to receive multiple corrective surgery procedures to fix what the doctor had done.
Plastic Surgery Nightmare
After her initial operation, Thai’s stomach area became infected and her skin turned black and started to die. Her doctor informed her that the blackened skin was nothing to worry about when she returned from Bangkok last March. The wound started getting larger shortly after that and was not healing from the antibiotics Thai was taking.
She was immediately admitted to Pindara Private Hospital. The doctors there said it was one of the worst cases they have ever seen. Thai had received the surgery during a cosmetic tourism trip with two of her friends and spend $7,000 for the procedure.
The problem with overseas procedures is that patients are not always properly assessed and in Thai’s case, her poor circulation problem was overlooked by the surgeon.
