A woman said she nearly died after getting two botched boob jobs at a clinic she saw advertised on Instagram.
Holly McCulloch, of Greasby, Wirral, has been left with two mismatched breasts- a B-cup and a D-cup – after her implant surgery went horribly wrong in Turkey last July.

The 28-year-old said she booked into a clinic in Istanbul via Whatsapp after seeing an advert, reassured by ‘celebrities’ who were promoting it on Instagram.
She flew from Manchester to Istanbul, where she later paid £2,700 for her operation and a five-day all-inclusive villa stay.
Holly, who is 5ft 6in and a size 8, claims that when she told the doctor she wanted G-cup breasts he responded with a high-five and did not question anymore.
Without seeing the actual implant, she said: “I was anxious because it all felt strange and rushed, but I had made my decision and at the end of the day, more than anything I was just so excited.”
Four hours later, Holly was wheeled down to the operating theatre and the last thing she remembered before surgery was the doctor saying to her ‘you wake up with big boobies!’.
But Holly said she woke up in ‘absolute agony’.
“Each time [the nurse] touched me, I was in agony. It was like my chest was on fire – all I could do was sign for her to pass me my phone and I frantically typed into the translator ‘I can’t take anymore’,” she recalled.
She said the doctors came in and took her into the operating theatre again and when she woke up again, the implants were gone.
Holly was left devastated as she noticed her skin being stretched out from the huge implants and looking loose and saggy.
