Model sues over mismatched breasts

A MODEL from Zvolen is suing a plastic surgery clinic for Sk1.5 million (Ř44,750) in damages after she says they gave her two different sized breasts.

Yomaris Randis, born Marcela Randisová, claims that after her breast augmentation surgery at the Banská Bystrica-based NovaMed clinic in 2005, her left breast was noticeably bigger than the right one, the SITA newswire wrote. She has since had two corrective surgeries that did not improve the situation.

Randis, 29, said she has suffered severe pain and mental distress as a result of the operation.

She has also had financial problems. Ramis has paid a total of Sk60,000 for the original surgery and the follow-ups, she said. She has also lost work, including a photo shoot for unnamed brewery and one for a men’s magazine, because of the surgery, she said.

“I am requesting the money so that I can get an operation abroad and return to modelling,” she said.

NovaMed’s lawyer has denied any professional failure on the part of the doctors. An expert’s report said that it is normal for breasts to be asymmetrical, and he concluded that the difference in size between Randis’ breasts was caused by her physiological attributes, the lawyer said.

But the model and her lawyer cast doubt on the expert’s conclusions, arguing that he examined her very briefly. They have called for him to be cross-examined at the trial, and they asked for a second expert’s opinion.

The judge complied with their request and adjourned the trial indefinitely. News wires ČTK and SITA wrote.
