A British woman claims she nearly had to have her leg amputated after she caught a flesh eating bug when she had cut price 'thigh gap' surgery in Turkey. Sian Elliott, 29, had full body liposuction last year but said it left her with saggy skin on her inner legs, so she forked out around £2,000 to have it removed on both legs. She woke up from the three hour operation in agony and was horrified when some of her stitches popped open on the flight home.
