Failed plastic surgery leaves mother of two fighting for life with perforated vital organs
A mother of two has fought for her life with holes in her vital organs after undergoing botched cosmetic surgery in Spain.
Sara Gomez, 39, is currently in intensive care following a horror liposculpture procedure which took place at a medical center in the city of Cartagena, Murcia, on December 2.
The mother paid € 5,700 (£ 4,800) for the operation at Virgen de la Caridad Medical Center which aimed to shed her fat and prevent the production of more fat cells.
It was reported that Gomez “became a bit unstable” after the operation, despite the doctor reportedly telling his family that the procedure was initially successful.
Before the operation, Gomez reportedly told the doctor that she had previously had liposuction on her stomach, but was told it would not cause any problems.
Things then turned from bad to worse after the mother was transferred to Santa Lucia Hospital, where her family say she was left “bleeding to death”.
She underwent surgery after discovering that she had suffered punctures and damage to several organs, including her kidneys, liver, duodenum and intestine, according to a report in La Sexta.
She remains in the hospital’s intensive care unit almost a month later, and her current condition is due to medical negligence, according to her family, who say they intend to take legal action.
When she was first transferred to the hospital, it took several hours for her to be admitted, and her family believe that if it had not been, she would not be in critical condition. now.
Sara’s brother Ruben Gomez was quoted in Antena 3 as saying, “Even in the extreme, they cannot imagine the reality that we are going through right now.
“They made her wait there for four hours, bleeding to death, and she arrived here in an almost mortal state.”
Ruben added, apparently referring to the plastic surgeon: “(L) the authorities here in Murcia may be taking some sort of precautionary measure towards this person.”
Sara’s ex-partner, Ezequiel Nicolas, told local media that the operation did not have to be performed “because it is something that could have been avoided with poor professional advice.”
The case is ongoing.
