SAD MUCH!!! Model Dies In Liposuction Operation Gone Wrong
Tragic Pamela Nascimento, 27, suffered severe blood loss when she went under the knife at an exclusive plastic surgery clinic.
Her family say a perforated kidney was the cause but chiefs at Green Hill Hospital in Sao Paolo, Brazil, claim she went into cardiac arrest during the procedure.
It was the third time the model – who appeared as a glamorous co-host on several prime time game shows – had underwent a stomach-flattening op.
The doctor who performed the operation, Julio Yoshimura, faces possible charges of manslaughter.
He could also be charged with procedural fraud as cops were not notified about her death on October 19, which only went public this week.
Pamela’s death certificate was also penned by Dr Yoshimura, the same doctor who carried out the op.
Her aunt, Enedida Nascimento, said Pamela had undergone other plastic surgery, including boob and nose jobs.
She said: “She was obsessed with her looks. She was always telling me how fat she thought she was.
“But she didn’t tell me about this latest liposuction. If she had told me I wouldn’t have let her.
“It had only been a short time since she’d had treatment for varicose veins.
“A doctor from the hospital called me telling me that there had been a complication with Pamela’s liposuction and that she had passed away.
“I went to the hospital to recognise her body. The staff seemed very nervous, they were shaking.
“They wanted me to arrange for her to be taken back home and buried as soon as possible.
“I’m sure there’s something the hospital hasn’t told us, and someone was negligent and Pamela didn’t have to die. That’s why I decided to inform the police.”
The cause of death was registered as hypovolemic shock, where severe blood loss make the heart unable to pump enough blood to the body.
Pamela was originally from the southern state of Santa Catarina, where she was brought up by her aunt after her mother died when she was six.
In 2009 she moved to Sao Paulo, where she made regular appearances on Brazilian TV as well as studying for a degree in biomedicine.
She served as an assistant host in hit shows O Melhor do Brasil and Programa do Gugu on the Record TV channel.
A spokesman for Green Hill Hospital, one of Sao Paulo’s most exclusive plastic surgery clinics, said they had opened an investigation into the tragedy.
He added: “On this occasion, the hospital provided all the necessary resources to adequately treat patient Ms Nascimento.
“However, we regret what happened with immense sadness.”
