A lady has died after her secret boob job operation went wrong and left her in a coma for more than two months with her eyes wide open.
The lady identified as Inna Moskovaya, 44, is the latest to die or suffer serious medical problems after having plastic surgery performed in Russia.
According to reports in the media, there is a certain clinic where an “angel of death” nurse is suspected of poisoning patients after breast or nose operations, but criminal investigators are also examining whether “bad medicines” have been used to cut costs resulting in deaths and traumas.
Respected medic Dr Moskovaya underwent the procedure in late February but had not told her friends and family.
She was operated on by leading plastic surgeon Mikhail Kalchenko, 39, husband of her close friend, and she underwent detailed medical checks before the £1,900 operation.
According to one account, she failed to recover from the anaesthetic and stopped breathing, her eyes wide open but completely unconscious in a first-level coma.
Kalchenko has told criminal investigators that she came round after the surgery and he talked to her briefly about her recovery.
Only then did she suddenly sink into a coma.
A friend of the dead gynaecologist – mother of an adult son – said:
“I think her surgeon is scared and shocked now. Inna was a good friend of his wife’s. All of them are doctors. Her relatives have not received documents about what happened because Inna did not give next of kin names. She did not want anybody to know about this surgery…”.
The victim’s sister Valeria said:
“We will search for justice. We lost Inna… but at least others won’t suffer like this. We will pursue this to the end.”
She claimed something went wrong in the aftermath of the surgery, but there has been no explanation.
She claimed her sister was left alone after the surgery and stopped breathing.
