A class action has been filed against one of the country's largest cosmetic surgery providers, with hundreds of women making allegations of negligence during procedures.
Particularly, during breast augmentation procedures, it is alleged that complications arose including heart attacks, seizures, infections, chest wall deformities, pain, discomfort and psychiatric injuries.
A case has been filed in the NSW Supreme Court alleging that The Cosmetic Institute breached its duty of care to patients using a 'one size fits all' approach to the procedure.
The women are also taking action against TCI director and surgeon Dr Eddy Dona.
The class action covers people who underwent breast augmentation surgery at TCI locations in Bondi Junction, Parramatta and on the Gold Coast.
