Russian Woman Sues Plastic Surgeons Over Bad Nose Job

A Siberian woman has successfully sued a clinic after surgeons bungled an operation to correct her nose.

A Siberian woman whose face was bitten by a dog has successfully sued a private clinic after surgeons bungled an operation to correct her nose.

The unidentified woman had gone to the clinic to have the "anatomy and function" of her nose restored in the aftermath of the dog attack, the Interfax news agency reported Friday.

But despite undergoing four operations at a cost of more than 100,000 rubles ($1,600), the plaintiff was left with difficulties eating, breathing and sleeping, Interfax cited the Krasnoyarsk Regional Court as saying.

Medical experts concluded that the clinic's surgeons had failed to restore the woman's nose to its previous state because of the poor quality of the medical services provided, the court said.

The woman was awarded 400,000 ($6,500) in moral compensation and damages, Interfax reported.
