Woman sues after plastic surgery 'leaves her with three belly buttons'

Woman sues after plastic surgery 'leaves her with three belly buttons'
Published: 2014 November 02 08:57:17 (10711 Views)
64-year-old Eileen Harbour from the UK, claims she has been left looking like she had 'three belly buttons' after a botched tummy tuck and is now suing Shiva Singh, 66, the surgeon who performed the procedure for more than £100,000.

Mr Singh previously hit the headlines in 2004, after performing a live televised breast enlargement on adult film actress Cathy Barry, which were increased to size 34JJ, the size of rugby balls.

The Evening Standard is now reporting that Ms Harbour has now brought a High Court claim against Mr Singh for alleged personal injury and medical negligence after he performed the operation at Highgate Hospital in North London, a private clinic which specialises in cosmetic procedures.

She has alleged that following the stomach surgery four years ago, she suffered an E.coli infection and still has trouble breathing, resulting in a difficulty in undertaking physical activity.

It has also been reported that a chest x ray revealed that she had suffered a partial collapse of her right lung, whilst embarrassing scarring made it appear as if she had 'three belly buttons'.



However, a central part of the argument for both parties is focused on Ms Harbour's smoking habit.

She admits that Mr Singh had only agreed to perform the surgery if she stopped smoking, but was not told that smokers would be more prone to complications after surgery.

Mr Singh has denied this, stating that she signed two consent forms which detailed these risks, and that Ms Harbour would arrive for aftercare appointments smelling of cigarettes.

He has also questioned why she did not mention any breathing difficulties until several months after surgery.

He added that the 'three belly buttons' may have been the result of a fluid build-up that burst through the scar.
