A Central Florida woman who claimed she was disfigured during a Brazilian bikini wax has been awarded $15,000.

Jean Simmons, 37, of Apopka, was about to leave for a trip to Las Vegas with her husband in 2007 and decided to get the wax at the Moriah Brandons d' Excellence salon in Altamonte Springs.

Simmons said she was injured during the procedure, which involves the removal of all of the hair in a woman's pelvic region. Simmons said the process ripped her labia, forcing her to get stitches and weakening her sexual desire.

A jury of four women and two men decided to award her $15,000.

Simmons and her husband were seeking nearly $500,000 in the suit. Simmons' husband was not awarded any money.
