Dr. Chinonso Egemba, also known as Aproko Doctor, has advised women seeking to undergo cosmetic surgery to make sure their surgeons are fully qualified.
He gave the advice on Wednesday, 15 March, after a lady died from complications she had during a plastic surgery.
“If you want to have cosmetic surgery, make sure your surgeon is fully qualified. Yes, every surgical procedure comes with risks, esp BBLs. A lady just died here in Lagos following one of these surgeries. May she RIP BBLs can be dangerous and carry a huge risk, so be aware,” he tweeted.
The doctor issued the advice after a lady was confirmed dead by friends in a Lagos hospital following a Brazilian Butt Lift (BBL) surgery.
The 20-year-old lady, whom friends say was full of life, was identified as Destiny a.k.a Jojo.
Multiple sources informed that Destiny had on Tuesday, 7 March, gone to a facility to get the procedure done.
Sadly, she had suffered a breathing problem during the procedure, prompting a quick transfer to a specialist hospital where she allegedly passed on.
A friend who was in the know, explained what happened.
“It was four days after the lady’s surgery. In fact, she was supposed to go home that day but in the morning, around 5am, she started complaining of breathing issues. The nurses and doctors immediately came around and started attending to her. When it got worse they transferred her to a specialist hospital were she passed on.”
Another friend, in broken sentences said: “We came the same year, 2021… lived together and served the same madam… Me and her were the first to pay off after turning a new leaf and trying to survive. I wonder why Didi went this far…”
