A woman who travelled abroad for cheap cosmetic surgery says she is filled with regret after being left needing reconstructive surgery.
Kimberley Sadd, 27, needed reconstructive surgery after getting a tummy tuck and breast implants in Turkey.
The surgery was a fraction of the price valued at £6,000 compared to the UK where it would cost around £10,000.
Ms Sadd spoke to the BBC and claims the procedures and aftercare were sub-standard, resulting in her having to now pay a bill of £10,000 for corrective breast surgery.
She had lost nine stones in one year and wanted to have surgery to remove the loose skin from her weight loss.

She said: "I went to the hospital, it was a little white old building in a back street.
"The nurses in the villa, they never wore any aprons or anything, so when they changed your bandages they change you on the bed in your room."
She also explained that the company also emptied the drains of her tummy tuck down the bathroom toilet.
She added: "They're just pouring blood fluid into a toilet."
BBC Wales reported they made repeated attempts to contact the firm who carried out the surgery.
Kimberley was told to leave by nurses at 9am the following morning of the surgery without any advice on aftercare.
She told the BBC: "I went back to my hotel and I just saw blood just going onto my pad, my stitches had popped open around my nipple."
Following this she made multiple trips to the hospital once back to the UK and faced ongoing problems.
Plastic surgeon, Dean Boyce also spoke to the BBC: "Recently we've seen an increasing number of complications from people who've had surgery abroad.
"It is cheaper in some countries, but you have to look at the bigger picture."
