A reality star was left with a "rotting" nose after botched plastic surgery and is begging her Instagram fans to raise money for it to be fixed.
Anastasia Balinskaya, 29, shared graphic images of her nose with her 153,000 followers and warned them against using plastic surgery to boost self-esteem.
The former star of Russian reality show "House-2" said that her nose swelled to a huge size before rotting away from the inside after the cosmetic op.
Anastasia says an implant caused the reaction and that it was just the latest drama in a series of botched operations on her nose that left it finally now decaying from the inside out.
She has been prescribed antibiotics and nasal drops but has been told it is now a race against time to save her nose from decaying completely.
Anastasia said: "The doctor told me that I had a month, a maximum of two, until everything decayed."
She said this is the timespan that she now had in order to solve it before it is too late and she needs help as she does not have enough money for further treatment, and can not take out a loan in her native Belarus.
She wrote on Instagram: "Victim of plastic surgery? Yes! I curse the day I went under the surgeon's knife for the first time!
"If you are a girl and are reading this post, I beg you to understand what I did not understand before.
"You can't use plastic surgery to boost your self-esteem. You will never achieve the desired result!"

She said she had suffered for "five years" and added "I have already had three operations on my nose and with each op, it is getting worse and worse.
"I'm not chasing beauty right now, I just want a breathable, flat nose.
"After the last operation, my bone split and the bridge of my nose looked like I had been beaten in the ring.
"Yesterday I went to the doctor and found out that the artificial implant that was inserted into the tip of my nose did not take root, my body rejected it, the cartilage has come out in one nostril, there is inflammation, and my nose is rotting.

"I need an operation urgently, I have a maximum of 1 to 2 months.
"I cannot afford it, if you want to help me, I will leave my bank number in this post. Even if everyone translates 5p, you can help me save my nose.
"I have never asked or accepted help from anyone, but now I simply don’t have anyone to turn to for help."
After she made the appeal, fans reportedly made some donations that allowed a partial operation to remove the implant.
She shared an image of the object, but she complained that the tip of her nose had then gone bright red despite its removal and added she still had a long ordeal ahead of her to save it.
