Russian woman’s nipples ‘in the wrong place’ after plastic surgery

Woman is left with gaping hole in buttock and her nipples ‘in the wrong place’ after horrific plastic surgery in Russia that has now prompted criminal probe

  • WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT: Veleslava Grigorieva, 40, spent £25,000 on surgery to improve her looks
  • After the botched surgery she had ‘corrective’ procedure but it also went wrong
  • Two surgeons in Ekaterinburg could be jailed for up to six years if convicted

A criminal case has been launched against Russian plastic surgeons who are accused of leaving a woman with a gaping hole in her buttock and her nipples ‘in the wrong place’.

Veleslava Grigorieva, 40, said the pain was so bad after spending £25,000 to improve her looks that she needed ‘to book three seats on a plane because I can’t sit down for more than a few minutes’.

The distraught woman today welcomed the criminal case decision which could see the senior surgeons at Nudelman Cosmetology and Plastic Surgery Clinic in Ekaterinburg jailed for up to six years if convicted of damaging her health.

She had gone public with intimate pictures of her ‘plastic surgery from hell’ to force legal action from the authorities – which is now announced.

But in the process she was subject to vilification and humiliation from those who criticised her decision to use plastic surgery to regain her beauty, she said.

She claims the initial ‘botched surgery’ by Igor Tsvetkov, trained partly in Canada and Sweden, left her nipples ‘too high and in the wrong place’ with ‘ugly scars’ and required corrective surgery which failed to solve the problem.

Veleslava returned to the clinic where another surgeon Nikolay Golubkov, agreed to do a new operation on her breasts and suggested she should ‘improve my buttocks’, she claimed.

She was given new liposuction and ‘lipo-lifting’ – when the buttocks are enlarged with the help of patient’s own fat removed from other parts of the body.

But after weeks of appalling pain she was told by a medic at another clinic she had an abscess in one buttock but they did not want to get the blame and ‘refused to help’.

Eventually she had to fly to Moscow to a new clinic where doctors ‘removed much of my buttock’.

Nightmare pictures showed the damage to her rear.

Nikolay Golubkov agreed to do a new operation on her breasts and suggested she should ‘improve my buttocks’, she claimed, but she ended up having to have life-saving surgery to correct the wound 

Russian Investigative Committee official Alexander Shulga said the criminal case was being launched under accusing the clinic and its surgeons of failing ‘to meet safety requirements’ in carrying out plastic surgery.

The woman said: ‘I still struggle with the consequences of these surgeries.

‘All this affected not only my physical health, but also all aspects of my life.

‘Firstly, it is a lot of stress, and secondly, material damage, because I lost my job and sold an expensive car in order to (pay for corrective surgery).

Speaking of her ordeal, she said: ‘I am not a public person, but I had to put my history on public display in order to help myself and attract the attention of other people to the problem related to the quality of the work of the plastic surgeons.

The two surgeons Veleslava Grigorieva blamed for her ordeal are Igor Tsvetkov (left) who botched the initial surgery and Nikolay Golubkov (right) who was responsible for the nightmarish ‘corrective’ surgery 

‘Of course, many people wrote me nasty things saying I am guilty, since I lay down under the knife in pursuit of beauty.

‘Please understand, it is strange to go to a plastic surgeon when you are 18, but when you are 40 – there is nothing wrong with the desire to improve yourself, especially if there are problems in appearance.

‘I always kept myself in shape, and went to the gym.

‘I didn’t want implants in my breasts or a bum like Jennifer Lopez… But I had complexes and certain drawbacks.

‘And when the doctor suggested – I trusted him and decided to go for it.’

After the surgery on her bum, Veleslava said: ‘Next morning my bottom was leaking from the wounds in the buttocks, everything was black and blue’

The surgeons have not commented on the criminal case being launched six months after the patient initially went public.

Previously the clinic said: ‘We tell our patients about all the risks before any procedures.

‘We never betray our patients and never leave them in trouble, we never refuse to help.’

Veleslava Grigorieva said there is nothing wrong with the desire to improve yourself

A biography of Golubkov says he is a member of the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), and the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

He is listed as a winner of the National Golden Lancet Award.

After the surgery on her bum, Veleslava said: ‘Next morning my bottom was leaking from the wounds in the buttocks, everything was black and blue.

‘The doctor said this was normal.

‘I spent five days in the clinic and was sent home with horrible pains.

‘Three days later I send photographs to my surgeon showing my buttocks getting worse again.

‘He told me to have a massage.’

She said her breasts had been left ‘even worse than before’ with loose folds of skin and ugly scar marks.

This man left a secret message for his girlfriend in the Good Weekend quiz – and she said ‘yes!’

There was only one person in the world who knew the answer to the last question in Saturday's Good Weekend quiz: "will you marry me, Melissa Rose?"

And the answer was yes, much to the relief of the man behind the question, Dennis Neuen.

"I got up to 'will you marry me Mel' and I just started crying," Melissa Rosamond Godwin, 27, said.

When Dennis decided to propose to Melissa, he wanted to include a ritual they've had since they first started dating.

"We've been together for just coming up to three years and we've pretty much done the quiz religiously every week, it's always been the one thing that's been our thing," Dennis, 27, said.

Can you spot the secret message?Credit:Good Weekend

So he emailed the generic address at the bottom of the quiz asking if it would be possible to get a mock-up that he could use to propose to his girlfriend, but the Good Weekend team wanted to make the real thing.

"I'm a sucker for a good romance,"Good Weekend editor Katrina Strickland said.

Ms Strickland said she's relieved she read Dennis's email in a very full inbox, back in September when he first contacted the magazine.

"We get so many unsolicited emails through the Good Weekend general inbox that I'm still amazed and thankful that I even noticed Dennis's email," Ms Strickland said.

"I think it's because it was so heartfelt and he seemed so lovely and genuine. I got instantly excited about the idea and sent his email on to our quizmaster, Conal Hanna and creative director, Tim Beor.

"Conal upped the ante, suggesting that rather than mocking up a pretend quiz, he could create a real quiz in which Dennis's proposal would be spelt out via the first letter of every question."

The hardest part was figuring out how to phrase the proposal in 25 letters, which they eventually did using a version of Melissa's middle name, and rewording all the quiz questions.

"Writing it was definitely a bit more challenging than normal," Mr Hanna said.

"Most of our quiz questions usually start with 'w', who, what, where, which and so on, and this one took a bit of creative thinking. I think keen readers probably noticed it seemed a bit unusual but I figured they'd forgive us when they got to question 25."

Everyone from subeditors to designers were brought on board to make sure no questions were changed at the last minute and Dennis was told it was a done deal when the magazine was sent to the printers eight days ago.

After finishing work on Friday, Dennis and Melissa drove down to Beechworth and walked down to the local newsagent on Saturday morning to buy a paper so they could do the quiz over breakfast.

"We got up to question seven or eight and then breakfast came and Mel said, 'Let's eat', and I was like, 'No, we should finish it!'," Dennis said.

The couple said their families have bought several copies of the quiz and will frame at least a few.

Dennis and Melissa met in 2014, in the first year of medical school in Sydney when they were both dating other people, and became best friends.

Two years later, they finally got together, and Dennis said he knew he wanted to marry Melissa about six months into the relationship.

"Deciding to propose was a no-brainer, having been together for about six months, I knew this was it," he said.

"She's one of the kindest people I know, she's incredibly generous and incredibly intelligent, she won the university medal, she's beautiful. At the end of the day, she's just my best friend and has always been my best friend."

Dennis said the two of them have just gotten a puppy, are planning to buy a house and are eventually hoping to have children.

And for those who struggled to get to the last question, Dennis said that you're not alone.

"We're pretty terrible, to be honest, our pass rate is pretty low," Dennis said.

"About 13 out of 25 is the peak that we've gotten together. Our lowest is about six, we don't talk about that."

Man claims flu jab left him unable to breathe, walk or see just days later

Shane Morgan went from being perfectly healthy to being unable to breathe on his own, confined to a hospital bed after getting the injection.

He's been in hospital for two weeks, having spent time in intensive care where he was put on a ventilator.

His family blames the flu jab.

At the start of November, Shane and his wife Monique were planning for the upcoming festive season which they were expecting to celebrate with their extended family – which includes young children.

So, the pair decided to get a flu jab to avoid catching or spreading any seasonal viruses.

Symptoms of Guillain-Barré syndrome

Guillain-Barré (pronounced ghee-yan bar-ray) syndrome is a very rare and serious condition that affects the nerves.

Most people do make a full recovery but it can be fatal and it can leave people with long-term problems.

Symptoms start in your feet and hands, before spreading to your arms and legs.

Other initial signs include: 

  • numbness
  • pins and needles
  • muscle weakness
  • pain
  • problems with balance and coordination

You can die from Guillain-Barré syndrome if it causes blood clots or severe breathing difficulties. One in 20 cases is fatal.

"About 36-hours after he got the flu shot he started to get sick," Monique said.

Shane started to complain that he couldn't feel his legs or arms, so his wife rushed him to Centennial Hills Hospital, LA, where he spent four days on a ventilator in the ICU.

Docs started treating him for Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) – a rare disorder where a person's immune system damages their nerve cells.

It can be fatal.

It's extremely rare but a link between the flu jab and GBS has been established.

Up to two people in every one million people develop GBS from the jab.

The couple now says that no one in their family will ever get the flu shot ever again, although health officials say that such a rare story shouldn't put people off from having it.

In fact, they claim that you're way more likely to develop GBS if you catch the flu.

The NHS says that while the causes of GBS isn't clear, it can be triggered by the flu vaccine, although again, it stresses that "this is extremely rare and the benefits of vaccination outweigh any risk".

Mum left cringing after ‘sexy Santa’ playsuit ordered online left her looking ‘cheap and frumpy’

Lisa, 28, had hoped the red slinky “one size fits all” outfit costing £6.98 would be a festive hit – only for it to be so tight she was barely able to squeeze into it.

Although the product description read: ''It's so stretchy so you don't have to be worried about it being the exact size you need,'' Lisa struggled as she tried it on for the first time.

Despite the online shopping fail, the sporting stay-at-home mum from Edinburgh still agreed to share photographs of her experience – sparking guffaws on Facebook.

In a post she said: "When your order arrives online and it's nothing like you expected.

''Been looking forward to this coming for ages – but only thing that's the same is the colour."

She then rounded off her post with a number of laughing face emojis.

Lisa said: ''The majority of people who have seen and commented on my posts have found it funny and tagged their friends, a few said there's no difference apart from the hood and some saying I need to get a bigger size or that it's because of the shape of my body.

"Going by the description it should have been a comfy fit and the description even says 'The costume is very good quality and looks great on.'

“But I’ve checked the measurements and they’re all wrong – I'd still shop online, but I'd be more careful with eBay.''

Lisa had spotted the cheeky red playsuit on eBay in November, and decided it was the perfect costume for the workshop.

The product description stated the costume was fitted all sizes, and as she wears a dress size 8-10, Lisa believed the costume would be a perfect fit.

The red stretch crush velvet dress with faux fur trim on the hoodie promised a hooded halter top romper and belt.

However, after unboxing the outfit, Lisa said she was left feeling “gutted” by what she received.

Hoping for a Christmas miracle, she decided to try it on anyway – reasoning it might look better on.

Lisa, who is mum to Mia, eight, and Morgan, two, said: "I wanted to get the outfit for a Christmassy pole dancing workshop where I'd be learning a pole routine – but what I got looked cheap and frumpy.

"When I opened it up I instantly saw it was rubbish quality and I was a bit gutted because I'd been looking forward to getting it. Still, I thought I'd try it on anyway and found it hilarious how it looked.

"After that I took pictures and sent them to my friend Georgie, who told me I should post them on Facebook so I did to give other people a laugh.”

The eBay seller has since said they would refund Lisa £2 for the mistake – and has said she can keep the outfit.

PrettyLittleThing send stunned teen jean shorts with HUGE rips… which look nothing like the ones advertised.

We also revealed another PLT shopper was sent a bodysuit with arms so long she looked like Mr Tickle.

While penis pocket trousers are now a thing… but we can’t see them catching on.

Desperate dad left penniless by Universal Credit threatens to STEAL so he can fund Christmas for his family

The 46-year-old from Plymouth says he's been left without any benefits cash at all for months after switching to UC this year.

The unnamed father was told he should claim the new benefit to continue getting sick pay – but hasn't been given anything.

He told Plymouth Live: "I am selling my belongings so my son can have a Christmas.

"It's coming to the point where I may end up having to go stealing to get stuff for my family.

"I will be stealing and thieving to get my Christmas, because I am being treated like s**t."

The dad was previously self-employed, but had to stop work earlier this year after suffering from depression.

He claimed he was advised to start claiming UC – but when he did, he was told he wasn't entitled to money.

Now he's living off his wife's benefits payments even though it's not enough to pay the rent.

The Department for Work and Pensions said it's up to claimants to ensure they inform the authorities about changes in their circumstances.

Thousands of Brits have complained about being left penniless while switching over to Universal Credit from the old benefits system.
