woman from Nigeria dies after failed plastic surgery in Turkey
Nigerian woman Abimbola Bamgbose dies after liposuction in Turkey.
Liposuction is a fat removal procedure used in plastic surgery.
A 38-year-old social worker died in August after purchasing an overseas Mono Cosmetic Surgery package.
Moyozore Tin’s husband is suing the company and the surgeon in charge, Dr. Hakan Aydogan, for £ 1 million for medical negligence.
The case began in Turkish courts.
Mr. Olovo told the AP news agency: “He was the backbone of the family.
“My wife was a great mom. My son has special needs and she had a calming effect on him.
“Now I am alone to take care of the children and it really hurts a lot.”
Ms Bamgbose went abroad for treatment at a monocosmetic surgery clinic in Izmir, a city on the country’s Aegean coast, Igbere TV reported.
While the mother of three initially hoped to undergo surgery in the UK, Tin went overseas to find it was too expensive, Tin said.
After comparing options, he finally decided to spend £ 5,000 in Turkey, with Mono also providing airport transfers and accommodations.
Her husband said that after treatment he developed severe abdominal pain.
Four days later, she said, she was examined by another specialist at the hospital and she underwent a second operation.
At this point, Olovo, who said his wife was his “best friend,” flew to Turkey, where the hospital’s medical staff told him that a mistake in the initial procedure led to complications.
Returning home to take care of his family, Tin received a WhatsApp call from the surgeon and said that his wife had died. The couple, originally from Nigeria, have been together for 15 years, according to Igbere TV.
On a postmortem examination, the Northwest Kent Coroner’s Office found that Bamgboz had died of peritonitis and multiple organ failure following a complication of liposuction surgery.
Tin said that his “beautiful” wife suffered from low self-esteem after giving birth to three children: Morayo, 13, Eyitayo, 10, and Titilayomi, 7.
She was unable to return to work as a contractor for the rail network as she died due to childcare obligations.
The grieving husband said that he would advise everyone who is going to have surgery in Turkey not to “go.”
“I am not going to name all doctors in Turkey below average, but there is a language barrier,” he said.
She said she fears that communication problems could help relieve signs of her complications.
Turkish lawyer Tin Burku Holmgren said that “Abimbola’s death was due to medical negligence.”
