9 women suing for botched breast surgeries

Posted: Updated:

EVANSVILLLE, IN (WAVE) - A cosmetic surgeon is being sued by nine women who accuse her of botching their breast reconstruction surgeries.

The women said they are battling infections and have suffered permanent injury to their breasts from surgeries performed by Doctor Alina Sholar.

Some of the women who are suing Sholar had their breasts removed to battle breast cancer, while others had breast augmentations.

An Indiana panel that hears medical malpractice suits has heard one of the cases so far.

The panel ruled in that case that Sholar met a reasonable standard of care.
