Woman's nipples 'rotted off' after she went abroad for 'botched' boob job (photos)

A woman who went under the knife to "feel confident" for her 40th birthday says she's been left with rotting flesh and no nipples.

Lyndsay Colosimo, 38, says she found herself almost £30,929 ($40,000) in debt after claiming the cosmetic surgery in May went badly wrong.

Ms Colosimo, from Florida, US, travelled to Colombia to have a tummy tuck and bum lift for £7,700 ($10,000) - a fraction of the US price.

But to her horror just days after the surgery Lyndsay says the flesh around her wound began rotting and turning black.


She said: "I was in surgery for five and a half hours, when I woke up, I didn't feel right and a doctor was nowhere to be seen.

"My legs felt numb and I began vomiting uncontrollably - it was the worst pain of my life.

"It continued for a few days and I could see a black spot under my bandage, but I was told it was dried blood and not to worry by medics.

"I knew in my heart it wasn't as I was getting worse by the day - eventually I saw what was under the bandage and 30 percent of my nipple was black.”

Lyndsay claims she was diagnosed with necrosis - when cells die due to disease, injury, or failure of the blood supply - leading to the removal of her milk duct three weeks after the first op.

But now she says she even feels uncomfortable wearing a dress and feels ashamed about her decision, realising her body was "good enough" as it was.
