A Dubai woman has been awarded AED50,000 in damages after a botched Botox nose job led her losing her job and being splitting up with her fiance.
The procedure took place in November, 2020 when the medical centre injected her nose with Botox and fillers to adjust its shape.
Despite repeatedly returning to the clinic, they were unable to help with her headaches and swelling. On her final visit to the clinic, she was given two injections for pain and prescribed several creams. But after persistent bleeding in the a taxi on the way home, she was referred to the emergeny unit at Rashid Hospital.
The woman claimed the repeated Botox nose job problems caused her depression which led to her fiancé ending their relationship and her losing her job.
She filed a case against the physician and the medical centre seeking AED400,000 in damages and compensatin. The case found that the physician wasn’t aware of some technical details and that he’d led to a permanent scar on her nose.
The judges ruled that the doctor and the centre pay AED50,000 in compensation and the woman’s full legal fees.
