Many people are willing to undergo plastic surgery to improve their appearance, but not all procedures are successful, and some can lead to permanent damage and deformities.
Yulia Tarasevich, a former runner-up in the Miss Russia beauty contest, experienced the unfortunate consequences of a plastic surgery gone wrong. She sought out what she believed to be the best clinic and surgeon for the job, paying $4,000 for the procedure performed in the Russian city of Krasnodar, according to reports from East2West News.
Unfortunately, the former beauty queen, 43, was botched.
Yulia expressed her disappointment with the plastic surgery results when speaking to Channel 1, as reported by the New York Post. She described how the surgeon transformed her once “beautiful, healthy face” into something resembling a nightmare. Yulia, who is a mother of two, had initially sought the procedure to address minor signs of aging but was left with significant health issues as a result.
Yulia had initially undergone several procedures, which included a facelift, blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), and cheek fat reduction. Unfortunately, the outcome left her “disfigured.” Subsequently, she required multiple emergency surgeries to prevent necrosis in her eyes, as she couldn’t close them after the initial procedure. As Yulia shared with Channel 1, scars formed in her cheeks due to the removal of tissue, and her ability to smile and move certain parts of her face, like lifting her upper lip, was severely impaired. She expressed her bewilderment because her previous rhinoplasty surgery had gone well, and there were no genetic issues detected.
Yulia Tarasevich claimed that the initial surgeries resulted in scleroderma, a rare genetic condition known for causing skin hardening. She filed a lawsuit against the two surgeons who performed the procedures, Dr. Andrey Komarov and Dr. Omar Khaled, accusing them of negligence. However, Yulia did not provide concrete proof that she suffered from the disease.
Yulia expressed her frustration, feeling that the surgeons placed the blame on her for the outcome, and that they had absolved themselves of any responsibility. Determined to seek justice, she decided to take her case to court.
The subsequent corrective surgeries incurred significant costs, totaling $27,000. While Dr. Omar Khaled deemed this amount “exaggerated,” the Russian Investigative Committee initiated an investigation into the two doctors responsible for Yulia’s procedures.
A forensic medical examination was scheduled to assess the extent of the damage to her health, and they also began identifying other patients who might have experienced poor-quality services at the same clinic. The investigation into the criminal case is still ongoing.
Yulia thanked her followers for their support.
“Hello, my dear friends. I want to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you for your unwavering support. Thank you from the depths of my heart,” she conveyed.
After a thorough investigation, the Prosecutor’s Office of the Krasnodar Territory has pressed charges against Dr. Andrey Komarov for providing services that failed to meet consumer health and safety requirements, resulting in severe harm to Yulia. If convicted, he may face up to 6 years in prison and a fine of $5,000. Additionally, Yulia has filed a civil case against him for suffering from depression following the surgery, which left her unable to close her eyelids or smile due to facial asymmetry. We hope justice prevails in this case. Please share this article with your loved ones on Facebook.
