A British woman, Diarra Akua Eunice Brown, 28, who travelled to Turkey to have liposuction surgery has died two days after the operation took place.
According to the Daily Mail, Diarra went to Istanbul to have the surgery at a clinic in the suburb of Bahcelievler on October 22.
Although, it was reported that everything went perfectly fine, until Brown’s fell ‘suddenly ill’ two days after the surgery while having her dressings changed and died within hours.
The police however arrested the doctor identified as S.G.B who performed the surgery and a criminal investigation is underway.
During interrogation, S.G.B revealed that Brown suffered no ill effects after the operation and had been discharged the next day.
He said she had returned a day later to have her dressings changed, but her condition quickly deteriorated.
Brown’s body has been transported back to the UK after a post-mortem examination was carried out.
Social media posts from family and friends paid tribute to her, describing her as a ‘beautiful soul’ and a ‘close friend’.
‘This must be a dream,’ one post said. ‘Still can’t come to terms with this yet.’
‘I miss you angel. I’m devastated you were taken away way before your time,’ said another.
