Mary Ryan was pronounced dead just days after she underwent a liposuction procedure. The minimally-invasive procedure took only four hours to complete. After surgery, Ryan started feeling sick and her doctors told her husband, Jimmy, that the symptoms were simply post-surgical discomfort.

Plastic Surgery Tragedy

Jimmy told the media that the plastic surgeon called in another type of medication to help relieve Mary’s pain and nausea, but the couple never got the antibiotics.

The couple flew to their native Ireland, and Mary was soon rushed to a hospital where she underwent two rounds of emergency surgery. The doctors told a distraught Jimmy that his wife had died of necrotizing fasciitis, which is a flesh-eating bacteria which people can get after they get this kind of procedure done.

The coroner reported that Mary died of “shock and sepsis due to necrotizing fasciitis,” for lack of proper medicine and infection.

Finding a Good Surgeon

Florida Woman Dies of Flesh Eating Bacteria after Liposuction - Finding a Good Plastic SurgeonWe cannot stress enough the importance of finding a highly-qualified plastic and cosmetic surgeon if you are considering getting any plastic surgery. Many doctors, both in the United States and abroad, can claim that they are legit cosmetic surgeons, when, in fact, they are not.

Before you sign up for surgery, you need to find a trustworthy surgeon so that you do not have to suffer from a botched procedure.

Some things that you can do in order to make sure that you are going to a licensed doctor are to:

  • Gather a list of candidates by researching on the internet, asking for references from family and friends and getting a referral from your family doctor
  • Checking the credentials and experience of all of the doctors you are considering going to including their training and education
  • Setting up an initial consultation with the doctor
