An actress had a black rotten nose and lost her job after botched plastic surgery.
The 24-year-old Gao Liu has now reached an agreement with the affected clinic after suffering permanent damage during the nose operation.
Ms. Liu from China previously warned of the dangers of plastic surgery by sharing pictures of her rotten nose after the disastrous operation.
The surgeon who performed the rhinoplasty did not have the proper qualifications to perform the cosmetic procedure and has since been suspended for six months.
The plastic surgery clinic was fined £ 5,410 for allowing an unqualified doctor to operate on patients.

The actress said the operation took place on October 29th last year at the nameless beauty clinic in Guangzhou City, Guangdong Province, China.
During her first visit, Ms. Liu was advised to undergo cartilage surgery, which involves transplanting cartilage from the ear into the nose to achieve the desired shape.
Moving on without delving into the surgeon’s procedure and background, she added that she made a bad call on the recommendation of a friend.
She was hospitalized for two months and the disfigurement has resulted in her losing a number of film and television roles, as well as fines for breach of contract.
Following the verdict, Chinese social media users expressed disappointment with the punishment, saying it was too lenient and would not help to change the safety of cosmetic surgery in China.
Details of Ms. Liu’s reported consent to the clinic were not disclosed.
She graduated from the Beijing Film Academy and was considered an emerging star in the television and film industries.
