A year ago a plastic surgeon in Orange County agreed to surrender his medical license after he was accused of coming onto one patient who came in for breast implants and having sex with a patient who came in for a tummy tuck—while her husband and children waited outside.But just four days before the doctor Mark Anthony Knight surrendered his license, he gave one patient "monster" breast implants, according to a recently-filed lawsuit by the patient.

Elisa Geraci filed a suit in Los Angeles Superior Court against Knight for what she describes as botched breast implant surgery. She claims Knight pressured her into getting C-cup breast implants when she went in asking for a breast lift, The Orange County Register reports.

When she woke up, she said it was like a scene out of horror movie: she had "extremely large breasts" that made her feel that "she looked like a monster." She claims Knight refused to fix her surgery—of course only four days later, he wasn't allowed to practice medicine in California.

Geraci went to another surgeon who took the implants out and gave her a breast lift—just like she had requested before.
