A liposuction death of a 21 year old Vietnamese woman occurred in San Jose in July of 2011.The death occurred because of puncture of the abdominal wall by liposuction cannula during a tummy liposuction.
The abdominal vein (the major vein in the body) was torn by the cannula. The patient lost blood and died on the operating table at a well known surgicenter in San Jose. During liposuction my intestine and lung were punctured in San Francisco. I was quite sick but since my surgery was in a fine hospital I survived.
Beware of surgicenters. Check them out with your family doctor. Many are dangerous. The surgeon that did my liposuction turned out to not be a real plastic surgeon.
I bet the San Jose doctor that punctured the poor 21 year old lady's tummy was not a real plastic surgeon that was boarded?linda
