Celebrity Pete Burns was awarded compensation of £450,000 for negligent cosmetic surgery on his lips.
Mr Burns suffered an allergic reaction to the chemicals used by his cosmetic surgeon, leaving the star feeling “maimed” and “mutilated”.
Pete Burns had to undergo 100 operations to correct the damage. His solicitor was critical of the cosmetic surgery industry, warning that there are many cavalier plastic surgeons operating without the requisite experience and skill.
High profile cases like this highlight the darker side of cosmetic surgery practices and will hopefully result in standards being improved.
