6th Breast Surgery Leads To Death For One Patient
Recently a woman by the name of Carolin Berger who was also a contestant on “Big Brother” passed away from attempting to have a 6th breast augmentation surgery. She was 23 and she was going from a 34F to a 34G when her heart stopped beating during the surgery.
According to the Huffington Post:
Cora has been in an artificial coma since January 11 at a clinic in Hamburg. Sky News explains, “She went under the knife for the last time at the Alster Clinic and was having 800g (28oz) of silicone injected into each breast. But her heart stopped beating during the operation. She suffered brain damage and was put into an induced coma.” Cora’s husband Tim Wosnitza remarked, “The doctors told me that she wouldn’t make it. The brain damage was too big.”
There needs to be some judgment on everyone’s part when a person wants to go through any plastic surgery treatment for the 6th time. There is such a thing as too much plastic surgery and you can bet that the doctor who performed this procedure will be sitting in the hot seat very soon. It is important as a cosmetic plastic surgeon to sometimes make important judgment calls on some of your patients. You need to know when it is right to say no and when it is ok to move forward with a patients wants and needs. In this case it is clear there was some negligence on the part of the plastic surgeon which resulted in a death of a young female.
