Mother in China was horrified to find 'two extra breasts' after expensive surgery.

A woman in China has ended up having 'four breasts' after paying more than £25,000 for a plastic surgery procedure that went wrong.

The mother-of-one said she went for the operation because she felt unhappy about her own figure following her childbirth.

But the botched medical session left her with two growths at each side of her chest. And when she went to a hospital to seek medical attention, a doctor was said to be so shocked by the deformity she said: 'Gosh, you have four breasts.'

The devastated woman, known by her surname Wang, revealed the horrifying experience in a news show by Guangdong Public Channel.

According to the report, Ms Wang who lives in Shenzhen underwent the procedure in May this year at the IF Aesthetic Surgery in Guangzhou.

She was advised by surgeons to buy two pairs of breasts implants because 'they said my own breasts had different sizes and they also needed to be augmented'.

She paid 230,000 yuan (£25,000) for the entire process. 

Ms Wang was given a general anaesthetic but she recalled waking up once during the surgery. 


She also discovered a large scar on her left arm afterwards. Surgeons claimed it was a burnt mark, but Ms Wang disagreed.

In October this year, she experienced pain in her breasts and went to the hospital for a check-up. She also discovered there was a hard lump on her chest.

It was found during the examination that the shoddy operation had given her 'two extra breasts'.

'The upper parts are bigger, the lower parts are smaller; the upper parts are hard, the lower parts are soft,' she told a reporter.

After contacting her surgeons, she was told that the hard parts were unlikely to be soften. 

The plastic surgery centre proposed to refund the cost of the procedure and give Ms Wang an extra 30,000 yuan (£3,275) on compassionate grounds.

Ms Wang said she could not agree with the offer, adding she had not been able to work for three months and experienced great mental stress because of the blunder.

A spokesperson from the clinic told the reporter that all of the surgeons at the centre were fully qualified and certified.

The spokesperson denied Ms Wang's accusation that the surgery was botched. 

He re-stated the clinic's original settlement offer and advised that Ms Wang seek legal assistance for further compensation.
