    Singapore-based Malaysian celebrity hairstylist Addy Lee is reportedly planning to sue the people responsible for his botched plastic surgery.

    Lee spoke out on Christmas Eve, posting several pictures and videos on his Instagram account to reveal the botched work.

    One of his posts accuses South Korean Item Clinic’s Dr. Kim for the failed procedure, according to AsiaOne.

    Failed plastic surgeries. South Korean Item Clinic’s Dr Kim made my eyes worse,” the 47-year-old hairstylist said in his Instagram post, adding that all of the procedures he underwent at Item Clinic in September failed.

    He described the clinic with the hashtags “cheat” and “irresponsible.”

    In another social media post, Lee showed a couple of short videos of him all bandaged up after the procedure. In the caption, he tagged another clinic employee identified as Elaine, who avoided him for three months which prompted him to go public.

    Failed plastic surgeries. Irresponsible Item Korea and its consultants. Don’t believe Elaine because she’s not the doctor,” Lee said.

    He added the warning, “Not all of South Korea is good,” referring to the country’s reputation for plastic surgery.

    Lee later revealed in a comment that Item told him that he needed to come back to the clinic after six months, which he found unacceptable.

    He is now considering filing a lawsuit against the clinic for turning his “phoenix eyes” into suay (unlucky) eyes” with droopy eyelids.
