Going abroad for cheaper surgery

Claudia Seye Aderotimi flew to the US to have a cosmetic procedure to enhance the shape of her bottom.

But just a few hours after the treatment, she fell ill and died.

It's thought that an unlicensed practitioner injected her with liquid silicone, which is more often used for building work.

So just how can anyone who travels overseas to have cosmetic surgery be sure that what's being done to them is safe?

Consultant plastic surgeon Jan Farhadi says he's sees a lot of people coming back with botched procedures.
