LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A Los Angeles woman is speaking out about a botched plastic surgery that left her with symmastia, or a “uniboob.”
Dinora Rodriguez, a 40-year-old stay-at-home mom, woke up in horror after undergoing a routine surgery to swap out her old breast implants.
“My breasts looked really bad,” she told MSNBC. “It looked like I had one big breast instead of two. And the pain was terrible.”
Rodriguez says her surgeon, who was recommended by a friend, also operated on her eyes without her permission. She says they no longer close properly.
Her breasts have since been fixed by a board-certified surgeon, and a lawsuit has been resolved in Los Angeles Superior Court.
