‘I could not dream of having a Kim Kardashian bum in my worst nightmare’: Psychologist is left with ‘terrifyingly-large’ bottom after visiting Russian plastic surgeon for boob and buttocks op
- Lyubov Laufer said she went for breast-shaping surgery with a Russian surgeon
- After a five-hour operation she woke up in pain to find a ‘terrifying’ large bottom
- She said she had ‘lost everything’ after the op which also gave her ‘wonky boobs’
A woman in Russia went to a plastic surgeon for breast shaping surgery and came out with an unwanted ‘Kardashian bum’ she described as ‘terrifyingly’ large.
Clinical psychologist Lyubov Laufer, 45, says her life has been ruined by the traumatic experience which also left her with ‘wonky boobs’.
‘I have lost everything – my job and my family as I cannot sleep in the same room as my husband,’ said the mother of three.
After a prominent plastic surgeon persuaded her to have breast surgery, she was passed off to another doctor at the last moment – and woke from a five-hour operation to find the ‘terrifying size’ of her new bottom.

Operation: Dr Rustam Kurmanbaev after he had just finished perfomed lipofilling for Lyubov Laufer, who was told at the last moment about a switch of medic
‘Terrifying’: Laufer said of her unwanted new bottom: ‘Forgive me Kim Kardashian, but I woke up with my buttocks a terrifying size that I had not asked for’
Not what I expected: Laufer agreed that any excess would go to her buttocks, but was appalled when she realised how big they had become after the operation
Laufer had initially had successful treatment with plastic surgeon Tatyana Romanovskaya to remove breast implants after seven years due to inflammation.
The surgeon persuaded her to subsequently undergo lipofilling, grafting her own fat to improve her breast shape, she said.
She took a four-hour flight to Novosibirsk, where the doctor is mainly based, for the procedure.
Minutes before the treatment she was told the medic’s colleague Rustam Kurmanbaev would perform the £3,900 surgery, she said.
She ‘cried’ about the change in doctor but went ahead, discussing with the medic where the fat would be removed from.
If there was excess, she agreed it would go to her buttocks, but was appalled when she realised how big they had become after the operation.
The procedure lasted five hours and she woke in ‘excruciating pain’ and requiring oxygen as she suffered ‘convulsions’.

‘I felt horror when I saw my breasts, and huge fear in my soul about how I would live with it,’ she said. ‘Everything froze in me.
‘And forgive me Kim Kardashian, but I woke up with my buttocks a terrifying size that I had not asked for. Even in my worst dream, I could not dream of a Kardashian-like bum on my slender body.’
She said she weighs 55kg and two litres of fat had been taken from different places in her body, mostly injected into her buttocks.
Back in Moscow, doctors were shocked at the damage to her body with ‘holes and tunnels’ under her scarred skin.
‘My husband is afraid to hug me,’ she said. Her spouse is also a doctor.
‘It looks as if my abdomen was torn in two, my breasts became wonky, different shapes and distorted. It’s a nightmare.
‘But the worst thing was the size of the buttocks.’
When she revealed her story on social media, Dr Kurmanbaev sued her in a Russian court – but lost. His clinic declined to comment on the case, reported Komsomolskaya Pravda.
She is now taking action against the doctor via the ethics committee of the Russian Society of Plastic Surgeons amid a finding of ‘multiple errors’ in the surgery.
