A 25-year-old missouri woman has died after an unsuccessful Brazilian butt at a miami-area surgery certer. Authority in Florida are investigating her death after she had undergo the cosmetic procedure before death took her away.
The woman is identify as Ranika Hall from Kansas City, who just had a baby and was not pleased with her post-pregnancy body so she decided to get cosmetic surgery done.
Ignoring the advice of her family, Ranika travelled from Missouri to South Florida and booked the procedure at the Eres Plastic Surgery in Hialeah, near Miami. She was booked for Thursday and went in for the surgery at the appointed time
She died Thursday after undergoing surgery at the Eres Plastic Surgery clinic in Hialeah, Florida, police said in a news release.
However, at about 9 p.m. Thursday paramedics were called to the clinic after Ranika stopped breathing, according to Hialeah police. She died about an hour later at a hospital.
Hialeah police are investigating with the Florida Department of Health and the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office.
Hall’s death came nearly a year after Heather Meadows, a 29-year-old West Virginia mother of two, died after a similar procedure at the clinic, which at that time was known as Encore Plastic Surgery.
Meadows’ death in May 2016 was due to fat particles that clogged the arteries of her lungs and heart, causing the organs to fail, according to the medical examiner’s office. The fat particles likely entered her bloodstream through a vein during a fat transfer procedure in which liposuction is performed on the torso and that fat is then injected into the buttocks area.
The Miami Herald reports Hall’s death is the fourth death since 2013 at a network of storefront clinics connected to a Miami physician, Ismael Labrador, and his ex-wife, Aimee De la Rosa. The clinics reportedly lure women from out of town with websites promising cheap plastic surgery and amazing results.
The clinic said in a statement Friday night that it is “deeply saddened by what has occurred” with Hall, and that the surgeon “is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to his patients.”
Hall’s mother has set up a GoFundMe page to cover the cost of her daughter’s funeral services. On the page, she wrote:
“My baby left Wednesday perfectly fine and healthy which was the last time I talked to her and seen her. Her procedure was scheduled for 3/16/17 at 1:30pm Miami time. She sent a text at 11:40 Thursday morning letting us know it was about that time. Never knew that would be the last time I would hear from her.”
