Keloid op goes wrong for girl

A DOCTOR snipped off a beautician's left earlobe without warning while operating on a keloid growth that appeared on her ear, says Kosmo!.

Phoi Sin Yee, 18, said the 46-year-old doctor told her that he could remove her keloid in a 30-minute operation.

After the surgery, Phoi was shocked to find that the doctor had in fact cut off her earlobe after encountering a problem during the procedure.

She added that the doctor did not apologise and even encouraged her to arrange a session with a plastic surgeon but her father refused.

Her father, Phoi Chan Wah, 49, said that he regretted the doctor's actions and accused him of negligence.

He added that he was considering legal action against the doctor.
