A woman has been left with regrets after procuring a low budget plastic surgery that caused her breast to be removed.

A woman has had her breasts removed after a cheap boob job using petroleum jelly and performed by a friend of a friend left her deformed, infected and in agony, according to Dailymail
The shocking case has been highlighted by a Russian campaigner against cosmetic surgery abuses, Alana Mamaeva, 32, amid an alarming rise in such horrors.
The patient, 48, told how she wanted to enlarge her 'small' breasts but after she had a baby and suffered from mastitis they became misshapen with a 'huge boil'.
An unqualified 'surgeon' showed the victim her own 'very beautiful breasts' and said she could do the same for her with injections of jelly, for £5.
In order to have the botched procedure the woman agreed to pay for the cost of the materials, totaling around £4.70, with the friend using her as a 'guinea pig'.
The woman, from the Caucasus region of Russia, said: 'I agreed the procedure with my husband.'
She then underwent the back street boob job without anaesthetic in her own home, having six jars of jelly injected into her body.
Pictures show the appalling consequences of the botched procedure, which has left the woman needed to have her breasts reconstructed by a cosmetic surgeon.
Discussing the boob job, the woman said: 'It was such a pain, a hellish pain, but I wanted this beauty.'
Soon she had a 'terrible fever' and was 'scared, regretting what I did' but after two days the pain subsided and the woman said her 'breasts were a wonderful shape, so beautiful…my husband was pleased'.
Yet the catastrophic consequences became clear after she gave birth. The woman suffered from mastitis, which is an inflammation usually associated with breast-feeding, and her boobs became misshapen with a 'huge boil' .
She said: 'The appearance was terrible - the pains were unbearable. There were ugly open wounds.'
After pus poured out of her swollen breasts the woman was forced to seek medical assistance.
'I felt this liquid coming out of me,' she said. 'Of course, I regretted of what I did. I beg other women never to take such steps. You will regret it, not in the first year, but later it will be terrible for you.'
The woman has now had surgery to remove the hardened petroleum jelly but this left her chest 'looking life a war wound'.
Campaigner Mamaeva said: 'You are destroying your own body with your own hands, demolishing your life.
'Such cases are shocking, horrifying. But they need to be shown and told to increase women's awareness, literacy and security - because knowledge is power.
'This woman - and dozens like her - do not need to be criticised by society or condemned. They have already punished themselves.
