Judge says woman has no right to complain over nose job
from ananova .............. A woman from Argentina has lost her case against the public health system after her nose job went wrong.
Gabriela Longo, 35 years-old, underwent free cosmetic nose surgery at the Fernandez public hospital in Buenos Aires, Argentina, 10 years ago.
But she hated the way her nose was changed and alleged she lost a modelling contract over the results of the surgery and sued the Argentine equivalent of the NHS.
But judges Hugo Molteni, Jorge Escuti Pizarro and Ana Maria Luaces said the woman had no right to complain.
They told Clarin newspaper: "One cannot complain about the results of a free cosmetic surgery on the public system. It is clear that one cannot expect to have the same results on a free surgery as they would in a paid one, where the doctors are all specialists and get lots of money."
"It sounds unreasonable to ask public health doctors to do a good job on a collapsed system of healthcare. If this woman chose to do the surgery on the public system she should have known that the doctors would not have the best qualifications."
"There is also a river called Helikon [in Pieria]. (...) But, they go on to say, the women who killed Orpheus wished to wash off in it the blood-stains, and thereat the River sank underground, so as not to lend its waters to cleanse manslaughter."
