Hospital to compensate woman for plastic surgery

A LOCAL hospital agreed to pay 10,000 yuan (US$1,613) to a Malaysian woman who was not satisfied by plastic surgery.

The woman went under the knife for a double eyelid and reshaping of her nose at Shanghai Anda Hospital in July last year but she  complained that the nose wasn’t perfectly in shape.

At her request, doctors carried out small surgeries to correct it.

For most Asians, double eyelid means bigger eyes and nose reshaping usually makes a higher bridge of nose, which is considered more beautiful.

The woman returned to Malaysia after a week, according to Shanghai Morning Post. But feeling dissatisfied, she returned to the hospital three weeks later. The same doctor carried out three more correction surgeries in the next 20 days.

Still unhappy with the changes, she demanded 20,000 yuan in compensation but eventually settled for 10,000 yuan that the hospital offered.

The hospital said the surgery was successful but the woman kept using cotton buds to clean the wound inside nasal cavity which stimulated the wound and changed the shape of the nose.

The Pudong New Area medical dispute affair office said the woman had called the office to complain several times.
