A cosmetic clinic owner has been jailed in Russia after a female patient nearly died during a nose job.

Karolina Sarkisyan visited the clinic of Dr Gulnara Shah, 57, in the Russian capital Moscow in 2018.

She said she had a deviated septum that made it difficult to breathe and she also wanted to remove a hump in her nose so it was more curved.

According to local media, the operation was performed by plastic surgeon Gevorg Stepanyan who Sarkisyan chose herself based on his experience and numerous positive patient reviews.

During the operation, the patient started to bleed profusely and clinic staff could not stop it so they called an ambulance.

Sarkisyan was admitted to the hospital where she reportedly slipped into a coma for nine days. In total, she was in hospital for three weeks.

After the incident, a criminal case was launched and investigators inspected the clinic and found it did not have a medical lisense to provide plastic surgery services, according to local media.

In addition, necessary medical equipment was not available and staff could not provide round-the-clock monitoring of patients.

During the investigation, clinic owner Gulnara Shah was transferred from a pre-trial detention centre to house arrest while Dr Gevorg Stepanyan fled Russia and is on the international wanted list.

The court subsequently found Shah guilty and sentenced him to one year and 10 months in prison. 

He was also order to pay £5,455 (RUB 560,000) to the victim as compensation.
