Student sues plastic surgeon for more than £50,000

News | Fri 13th May, 2016

A student is suing one of Britain’s leading plastic surgeons over claims her nose “collapsed” following a botched operation.

In court yesterday Mrs Zahir told Mr Justice Garnham that before the operation she had had a “straight” and “very symmetrical nose”. The procedure was meant to shave the cartilage and slim her nose down. However, Christopher Stephenson, for Mrs Zahir, said she was left with an “irregular nose tip, asymmetrical nose and collapsing right side”, and struggled to breathe out of her other nostril.

Mrs Zahir had sued for up to £100,000 but is understood to have agreed to accept £35,000, plus substantial costs, should Mr Vadodaria accept blame.

Christopher Stephenson is acting for the claimant.
