Cut by this person good plait is botched - as this (7)
I believe the answer is:
'cut by this person good plait is botched as this' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both body parts as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe there's an association between them I don't understand?
'cut by this person good plait is botched' is the wordplay.
'cut by' is an insertion indicator.
'this person' becomes 'i'.
'good' becomes 'g' (abbreviation).
'is botched' indicates an anagram.
'gplait' is an anagram of 'pigtal'.
'i' inserted inside 'pigtal' is 'PIGTAIL'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for pigtail that I've seen before include "Plaited lock of hair" , "Plait of braided hair" , "Long plait" , "Queue of hair" , "Porcine hair plait" .)
