A mum in Nairobi has lost her life after a botched breast augmentation surgery in Kenya
According to reports, the woman who has been identified as Juliet Wanza Mulupi died of sepsis. She had her procedure done by an unidentified surgeon in his office last week.
Wanza was discharged after her surgery but not long after developed severe abdominal pain that worsened.
Wanza, who was a mother of 3, was rushed to the Nairobi Hospital for review on Wednesday and was immediately admitted to the High Dependency Unit, then the ICU.
Medics discovered that her intestines had been cut or punctured in the first surgery, apparently during a fat transfer augmentation. Her blood pressure was dangerously low.
“Because her intestines were cut, all the waste was seeping out and spreading inside the stomach. That caused an infection called sepsis. Doctors battled to save her life on Friday but she died from the infection,” a family member told the Star on Monday.
