Cosmetic surgery is a wonderful thing, especially when you want to boost your self-esteem by altering your appearance to adhere to what others would call “beautiful” or simply because you wanted to feel good.
But did you know that these kinds of treatment have their own dangers as well?
In fact, it was reported by Health Line that cosmetic surgery can cause you to have nerve damage, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, infections, organ damage, scarring, blood loss, and anesthesia complications.
A similar incident happened to a 29-year-old businesswoman who subjected herself to undergo liposuction and surgery on her breast and butt. She availed this on a clinic in Mandaluyong City last Sunday, March 26.
Philippine Star reported that the doctors have tried to save Shiryl Saturnino, who lost her life at approximately 3:21 in the morning of Sunday, March 26.
According to Chief Superintendent Romulo Sapitula, who is the Eastern Police District (EPD) director, “We should determine whether there is negligence during the operation and file necessary charges.”
Their initial investigation showed that Saturnino, along with her relative Shiela Mae Anabe Deinla, came in the Icon Clinic around 5 in the afternoon of Saturday, March 25.
Senior Superintendent Joaquin Alva, the police chief, said that Saturnino was appointed to undergo breast augmentation, liposuction, and butt surgery.
She was brought to the operating room and the doctors of that time, Dr. Jose Jovito Mendiola and Dr. Samuel Eric Yapjuangco, were able to perform the procedure that lasted until 2:40 in the morning of Sunday, March 26.
They noticed that the woman’s heart was no longer beating and tried to revive her through mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. They also sought the help of Makati Medical Center but around 3:21 in the morning, Saturnino was declared dead.
Alva stated that “our police investigators that they would cooperate fully in our probe of the incident. They promised to forward their statements regarding the case as prepared by their respective lawyers.”
The chief police also mentioned that they would be waiting for the autopsy report before thinking of the charges that could be filed against the two doctors who performed the procedure.
