Unfortunately, things became complicated leading to the victim’s death. Sources revealed that the victim’s sister waited a long time for Anu to finish the surgery on her sister, but decided to go into the theater and find out what the delay was about. This was when she saw the almost lifeless body of her sister on the operation table with Anu by the side not knowing what more to do. Apparently, the victim had fallen into a coma owing to the complications during the surgery.

Why is liposuction going wrong in Nigeria you may ask? What is the risk and hazard associated with it?
The most frequent major complications that can lead to death of a patient undergoing liposuction is pulmonary thromboembolism, which represents more than 23% of deaths.
Pulmonary of victims. Embolism (PE) is when a blood clot (thrombus) becomes lodged in an artery in the lung and blocks blood flow to the lung. Pulmonary embolism usually arises from a thrombus that originates in the deep venous system of the lower extremities; however, it rarely also originates in the pelvic, renal, upper extremity veins, or the right heart chambers After travelling to the lung, large thrombi could lodge at the bifurcation of the main pulmonary artery or the lower branches and cause hemodynamic compromise.
Liposuction involves the surgical suctioning of fat deposits from specific parts of the body. The most common target areas are the abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, knees, chin, upper arms, back, and calves.
Liposuction breaks up and “sucks” fat out of the body through a hollow instrument (a cannula) inserted under the skin (subdermally). A strong vacuum is applied to the cannula.
In ultrasonic-assisted liposuction (UAL), the cannula is energized with ultrasonic energy, which causes the fat to melt away on contact. This method offers an advantage in treating scar tissue in areas such as the male breast, back, and in areas of prior liposuction. The disadvantages of UAL include the need for longer incisions on the skin, the potential for skin or internal burns, greater cost, and longer time.
The technique of tumescent liposuction has become specially popular, in part because of its purported safety. This procedure involves pumping several quarts/litres of a solution below the skin (subcutaneously) in the area to be suctioned. The solution consists of salt water (saline) to which is added the local anesthetic lidocaine to numb the surgical site and the vessel-constrictor epinephrine (adrenaline) to help minimize bleeding. The fat is then suctioned out through small tubes. Tumescent liposuction is now the most common.
The victims ages ranged from 33 to 54. Four of the 5 patients were usually women. All 5 had received lidocaine. Three died because their heart beat rates became too slow (bradycardia) and their blood pressure dropped dangerously (hypotension). It is well known that lidocaine lowers the heart rates. In fact, lidocaine is sometimes used as an emergency tool to slow down dangerously rapid heart beat rates.
One patient died of a fluid overload. She had been given more than 13 quarts of fluid, 7 intravenously and 6 pumped into the surgical sites which included the breasts (for enlargement), chest, arms, back, abdomen, thighs, buttocks and knees. The excess fluid pooled in her lungs (pulmonary edema) and she was essentially drowned to death.
The fifth patient died of a blood clot in the lungs. During a tumescent liposuction procedure of the legs, the patient developed a clot (thrombosis) in her calf veins, which broke loose (embolized) and wedged in her lungs (pulmonary thromboembolism).
