Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic – Relatives denounced the death of a woman on Tuesday, while undergoing cosmetic surgery at a health center in Santo Domingo.
Sharlim Almánzar Paulino, 26, died during an operation he decided to undergo to relieve pain that he felt was the result of a cosmetic surgery that was done last week.
According to relatives, the young woman had come to the clinic last Thursday to have breast surgery but six different aesthetic procedures were performed during the same, with the authorization of the doctor in charge.
“As a patient, she asked if other procedures could be done and the doctor said yes. In total they did six surgeries in the same day, “said a cousin of the victim, Iván Almánzar.
She explained that after the operation the young woman was feeling “strong” pain throughout the body for several days so she returned to the clinic where they explained that her discomfort was due to surgery wounds, and that she had to go back to have another operation to correct the lesions.
This Tuesday the young woman went to the center for said surgery but three hours later her family was informed that she died during the procedure due to a respiratory arrest.
