A woman who went back to complain about her discount breast implants saw things go from bad to worse.

Dawn Moore, 42, wasn’t satisfied with the cut-price breast surgery she had carried out in Poland in order to look the best for her wedding, saying it left her with uneven breasts.

However when she went back to complain she got a new tummy tuck instead, which became infected, eventually rupturing and leaving her scared for life.

Left feeling like a ‘rotting corpse’ on her wedding day, Dawn, 42, said, "It should have been the happiest day of my life, but it wasn’t."

The initial breast surgery in 2013 cost Dawn, from Essex, £2,300, followed by a £4,000 tummy tuck the same year.

During her recovery from the second operation she caught a flesh eating bacterial infection.

After flying back to Britain she was rushed to hospital where doctors performed emergency surgery.

Although she is home now Dawn has to wear a colostomy bag and has had to register as a disabled person due to the crippling pain she is experiencing.

She said: "It was the worst thing I have ever had to go through."

However one of the most painful parts for Dawn was finally realising that her husband Joe, 54, "loved me just the way I was".
