A family is mourning the loss of 45-year-old Simone Jones, who died during a plastic surgery procedure in New York last month.
The family is seeking a full refund for the botched job that caused Jones to lose her life, the Daily Mail reports. Jones went into cardiac arrest while getting liposuction at Lexington Plastic Surgeons in Manhattan on February 9. The Brooklyn native had elected to get liposuction on her legs, arms, and back, a buttocks lift, and a tummy tuck.
Her 26-year-old daughter Shantay was informed by Dr. Alan Bienstock that the surgery was “98 percent complete” when the patient’s heart rate dropped while he was working on the butt lift.
‘She was very attractive and looked young for her age and she wanted the whole package. She took pride in her appearance,’ she said.
Because she was a relatively healthy individual, the family’s lawyer Scott Rynecki says malpractice might be to blame.
Ms. Jones, an otherwise healthy woman went in for an ambulatory procedure and apparently her vital signs were not being properly monitored so as to allow this tragedy to occur,’ said Rynecki.
Jones paid a total of $11,000 for the surgery. On average, liposuctions, lifts, and a tummy tuck roughly add up to $17,000.
