Brazilian Butt Lift Goes Wrong In Miami Clinic: Woman Dies Following Surgery

Authorities are investigating the death of a Missouri woman who had traveled to South Florida to undergo a Brazilian butt lift procedure. "Unbelievable, like it's not true", she said.

Hall was rushed to Larkin Community Hospital, located just blocks away, where she died about an hour later.

According to Hall's family, the new mother was unhappy with her post-pregnancy body and made a decision to travel to South Florida to undergo the popular rear-reshaping surgery.

"It's hard for me to grasp a hold of it", Nicole Hall told the media.

Hall was at Hialeah's Eres Plastic Surgery to get cosmetic surgery when the incident occurred.

Nicole also said that she was "looking for answers" on how it happened.

Never knew that would be the last time I would hear from her'. In less than a year, there are two similar cases in which young women died after undergoing cosmetic surgeries at the same United States clinic.

"Dr. Calva is a highly skilled and caring surgeon that is dedicated to providing the highest level of care to his patients". At the time of Meadows' death, the facility that now hosts Eres Plastic Surgery was called Encore Plastic Surgery and had a different owner, NBC 6 reported. According to the Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation report, the researchers have found out that a patient had 20 times higher chances of dying because of a Brazilian Butt Lift than any other cosmetic surgery procedure.

The site has been a plastic surgery center for more than a decade but has changed names and ownership multiple times during that period.

The surgery took place at Eres Plastic Surgery in Hialeah - the clinic where Heather Meadows died previous year at 29 from the same procedure.

An investigation into Hall's death is ongoing.

During a Brazilian butt lift, fat is removed through liposuction on the stomach, back, thighs and/or arms, and then injected into the buttocks.
