Nose Job Leads to $18 Million Hose Job of the Doctor
Catherine Manzione (pictured above) claims she signed forms specifically refusing to grant permission to Dr. Grigoriy Mashkevich to post any pictures from the procedure on his web site.
If she specifically signed forms refusing to grant permission to her doctor, then I would say she has a case. But usually in these cases, the fine print written into the agreement between that patient and doctor usually has some sort of 'out' for the doctor to use these before and after pictures. Some of these medical releases or waivers of responsibility, give the doctor the right to use before and after pics at his discretion.
Then again, $18 million, or whatever the settlement amount will be, makes anyone feel better about themselves.
