Woman left with horrific scars after breast op.

A COSMETIC surgeon issued an apology but denied carrying out botched surgery that left a businesswoman with horrific scars. Andrea Scott went under the knife to boost her chest to an F-cup before the stitches burst open and the implants began sagging out of the wound.

Now - during a disciplinary hearing in Manchester - surgeon Mohammad Aslam has been accused of giving her a chest which was "too big and heavy" by expert James Bristol.

Aslam told the hearing he "felt very sorry" for his patient, but denied performing "inappropriate surgery" and providing poor aftercare.

Aslam is currently facing a string of charges relating to four of his patients.

It is said Aslam carried out an unsuitable procedure on Patient A on June 8, 2004 and on September 13 the following year. The GMC say he "inappropriately" transferred fat from Patient A's hips to her left breast along with another unsuitable procedure.

Aslam is alleged to have performed an inappropriate procedure on Patient B on December 30, 2008 then again on July 30 the following year when he changed her breast implants.

It is also alleged he performed two inappropriate breast operations on Patient S on January 30 and March 21, 2010 along with deficiencies in his aftercare and communication.

He is further accused of failures in record keeping for Patient Y, who underwent a replacement of her left breast implant on March 5, 2010.

Aslam denies any of the procedures were inappropriate or any of the care inadequate, but has admitted two allegations relating to poor record keeping.

The hearing continues.
