Reality Star Survives Botched Boob Job To Warn Other Women

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Reality star Gia Khay had an all too unreal experience with a bad boob job.

Now, this Sherman Oaks native is warning other women to make sure they do a good job of checking out their doctors before they have any procedure done.

Khay stars on VH-1’s “You’re Cut Off,” a series about nine women who find out their families have cut them off financially for being spoiled.

Americans spend more than $10 billion a year on cosmetic surgery. That’s a lot of plastic.

Khay readily admits her money was not well spent.

She says there was an emotional — and financial — price to pay for her ordeal.

Khay wants to now spread the word … look up your doctor on the California Medical Board Web site and check the American Board of Specialities to find out if your plastic surgeon is certified.
