The blonde beauty went under the knife at a private clinic in Krasnodar, Russia in December 2020 but the op went horribly wrong.

Instead of a facelift and a cosmetic correction of her eyelids, the model was left with a disfigured face.

Mother-of-two Yulia said she paid £3,000 for the operations carried out by surgeons Khaled Omar and 45-year-old Andrei Komarov, after which her face became badly swollen and inflamed.

The shocking footage shows her hollowed-out cheeks and bulging eyes as her face was paralysed.

Another doctor had to be drafted in to perform emergency follow-up surgery to save her eyes from necrosis, she said in a complaint.

After the first botched op, Yulia went to a second clinic for corrective surgery but this failed too, with the model taking both clinics to court.

She ended up paying £20,000 out of her own pocket to unsuccessfully fix the mistakes of her surgeons.

She has since filed a criminal complaint and received £49,000 in compensation at the civil part of the trial.

The mum-of-two told the civil court during the hearing: “I came to them with a beautiful healthy face.”

The civil court judges ruled that the procedures had caused “irreparable harm” to Yulia’s health, according to local media.

Despite the ruling, Andrei Komarov who was charged for the op walks out free and continues practising.

The smiling surgeon has been freed after the case took too long to bring to a trial and expired.

Komarov was facing three years in prison but escaped the punishment because the statute of limitations has passed.

The Leninsky District Court of Krasnodar said in a statement: “Having examined the case materials, listened to the parties and assessed the evidence presented by them, the court came to the conclusion that the defendant’s guilt in committing the crime under Part 2 of Art. 118 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation.

“Taking into account the defendant’s non-admission of guilt, in accordance with the sanctions of the article, he was sentenced to restriction of freedom for a period of three years.

“Due to the expiration of the statute of limitations, Komarov was released from the imposed punishment.

“The verdict did not enter into legal force.”

Yulia was left traumatised and depressed after the horror ordeal and bitterly recalled her encounter with the surgeon.

She said: “I was paralysed and he was smiling.”

The model claims Komarov showed no remorse for his actions as he continued operating on people in another city.

The local media reported that he moved 500 miles away to Volgograd and brazenly shared images of his new surgeries on social media.

The surgeons claim Yulia had a rare genetic condition – scleroderma – which made it impossible to predict, denying any responsibility.

She said that neither of the clinics involved in her nightmare have apologised to her.

She said: “I don’t know why two people operated on me, but in my case it was the exact opposite of the saying ‘one head is good, but two is better’.

“Neither of them offered me to do anything at their own expense that could really help me.

“I have already spent a lot of money on rehabilitation, but neither of them cares at all about this, or, indeed, about me, about my pain and suffering.

“Now these people who dare to call themselves doctors, who took the oath ‘Do no harm’, live in peace, sleep, drink, eat and travel to conferences, sharing their invaluable experience. And everything in their life is good.”
