Mr Thakkar revealed on Fox News that he had to undergo eight surgeries to correct a flawed nose job between 2006 and 2007. Eventually in a 2011 procedure, he claims that Dr Cuzalina cut off his nose, saying that he had to make the decision as Mr Thakkar was unconscious on the operating table.

"By the time I am able to breathe without pain and have a human-looking nose, I will have had 30 surgeries on my face thanks to Angelo Cuzalina," Mr Thakkar told Fox News. "There is no way I am going to live like this. It is worse than being dead."

He is now talking to other surgeons in the hope that his deformed nose can be reshaped. Dr Cuzalina's lawyers were not available for comment.
