A jealous woman who did not want her friend to become an air hostess has attacked her with acid, leaving her horrifically scarred.

29-year old Kanwal Qayyum, from Pakistan was burnt by the sulphuric acid she was poured upon while in her sleep by a bitter former pal who hated the idea of her bettering herself.

Qayyum lost her nose in the acid attack and surgeons have spent the past decade painstakingly rebuilding her features.

The victim now shared the pictures of her remarkable facial reconstruction after medics completely rebuilt her nose using tissue from her thigh.

One of the team helping her has been hair transplant surgeon Asim Shahmalak, from Manchester, who travelled to Karachi to create two new eyebrows and new eyelashes in the left eyelid for Kanwal from hair taken from the back of her scalp.

Dr Shahmalak, best known for his work with celebrity hair transplant patients like Calum Best at Crown Clinic close to Manchester Airport, was reunited with Kanwal on a trip to Karachi last week where she proudly showed off her new eyebrows and eyelashes which have grown back following his reconstruction work two years ago.
