Here at The Gloss, we neither endorse nor decry plastic surgery. To each his or her own, we say.
But that doesn’t mean that any old doctor should be cutting into folks, and one particularly heinous practitioner has been making headlines today for giving a woman a uniboob during a botched breast implant procedure, and also for performing eyelid surgery on her without her consent.
The surgeon in question, whose name hasn’t been released, operated on 40-year-old Dinora Rodriguez. Rodriguez’ existing boob job was beginning to leak, so she went in for a repair. But the surgeon, who she later found out wasn’t board certified, put her new implants so close together that they touched, leaving her with what looked like one boob.
As for her eyes, the surgeon apparently tried to correct a scar on Rodriguez’ face, and not only was the procedure unwanted, it was a failure — Rodriguez now can’t close her eyes completely, a problem for which no corrective surgery exists.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is using the story — and the fact that Rodriguez has been so willing to go public with it, which is incredibly bold of her — to remind people to do research on their doctors before undergoing elective surgery. And we do endorse that notion.
