Botched Surgery Gives Chinese Woman Four Breasts

(China) -- A Chinese woman has gone public with her story of a horribly botched breast augmentation. She recently appeared on a public news channel in southern China where she described her more than 27-thousand-dollar ordeal which gave her two extra breasts. The woman decided to get the surgery after feeling unhappy with her body following her child's birth. When she went for a session at the surgery center she was told she would need to pay for two extra implants so that her breasts, which are slightly different, could be correctly augmented. Shortly after the procedure the woman noticed a scar, a hard chest lump and began feeling long-lasting pain. Upon visiting an emergency room the doctor reportedly exclaimed "gosh, you have four breasts." The procedure had left her with two implants on top of each other inside of each original breast. The clinic denied wrongdoing, but said they have offered her compensation for alleged pain and suffering.
