M'sian mum, 45kg, dies on her 15th lipo op
SHE wasn't happy with her figure, so she went under the knife again and again.
After 14 liposuction treatments, the Malaysian businesswoman, who used to weigh over 50kg, tipped the scales at a mere 45kg.
Not satisfied, she decided to go for her 15th - and final - operation.
On Tuesday afternoon, the woman, who was in her 30s, stepped into a beauty parlour in a five-storey shophouse in Kuala Kumpur, reported China Press.
She had been visiting the same shop since December 2007, spending over RM1,000 ($416) there each time.
A police spokesman told China Press that shortly after the woman was given the anaesthetic, she started vomiting and later lost consciousness.
Forty minutes later, she was dead.
Her body was taken to the Kuala Lumpur General Hospital for an autopsy.
The spokesman said that the parlour had a licence, and had been providing services such as liposuction and other cosmetic procedures for almost a year.
He added that anyone considering such surgery should consult a doctor that specialised in this field.
The victim was the general manager of a firm selling technological products.
Her husband, aged 35, works as a manager in the same firm. They have three daughters aged between 3 and 11.
The woman's relative told China Press that the victim was not fat, but had put on a little weight after her pregnancy.
She said the victim had complained of some pain in her rear after a previous session and was planning to discuss her discomfort with a doctor during her visit on Tuesday.
The victim's husband said she had also told him about the pain, and that she had been taking painkillers for a month.
He recounted how his wife had to go back to the doctor after a session because her stomach started hurting. He alleged that the doctor had left some thread in her abdomen.
The doctor had to operate to remove the thread.
He said he had advised his wife to stop going for liposuction, but she had refused.
