Woman Awarded $3.5 Million After Surgeon Leaves Her with ‘Four Breasts’
A New York mother has been given $3.5 million for the pain and suffering she endured at the hands of a faulty surgeon who left her with what appeared to be four breasts.
Maria Alaimo, 47, had gone to Dr. Keith Berman in 2003 seeking a breast lift and augmentation. What she walked away with was an embarrassing condition known as “double bubble deformities.”
This week a jury found Berman guilty of botching the poor woman’s plastic surgery, which according to Maria’s lawyer left her looking “like there’s two breasts [on each side] stacked on top of each other.”
Following the trial Alaimo told reporters that she hopes the win will encourage those in the same position to come forward with their story. (The New York Post)
