A woman in cental China who paid for breast enlargement surgery ended up with an unwanted bonus - two extra breasts.

The 24-year-old woman found the extra breasts growing on her stomach one year after she underwent surgery at a clinic in Hunan province.

The extra breasts grew and grew until the woman was forced to undergo a second operation to get rid of them, according to the Hong Kong edition of the China Daily yesterday.
