A New York mom who said her botched boob job left her looking like she had four breasts was awarded $3.5 million for pain and suffering, the New York Post reported Thursday.
"I hope this will give other women in the same position the courage to come forward," said Maria Alaimo, 47.

The jury found that Dr. Keith Berman botched her 2003 plastic surgery, which was supposed to be a breast lift and augmentation, leaving her with an embarrassing condition known as "double bubble deformities."
Describing the condition, her lawyer Michael Kuharski said, "It appears like there's two breasts (on each side) stacked on top of each other."
The bungled surgery even contributed to the end of her marriage, he said.
"She slept in a different room, she's depressed, she lost her self-esteem," said Kuharski. "She ultimately pushed her husband away to the extent that he filed for divorce."
