Recently, a 31-year-old woman sued a Miami hospital for a near-death experience after a butt-lift operation. The woman, who travelled from California to Miami for the operation, claims that she remembers nurses and doctors shouting, “she’s bleeding! More blood, more blood!” in the operating room. The mother of two says she faded in and out of consciousness until the doctor’s staff called 911. At the hospital, the emergency room physician’s treated the patient’s punctured lumbar artery. To make matters worse, it turned out that the plastic surgeon who performed the initial procedure was not certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery although he claimed he was. The woman filed a medical malpractice against the plastic surgeon and the hospital.
