Death by Vanity – Donda West
Donda West, Kanye West’s mom, died dued to complication of undergoing cosmetic surgery. Donda had two cosmetic surgeries (tummy tuck and breast reduction) performed at the same time, and died at her home two days later. Kanye West’s mother was 58 years old when she died.
The surgery that caused Donda West’s death was performed by Dr. Jan Adams, who was later revealed to not be a board certified plastic surgeon.
Remember, simply because a procedure is “cosmetic”, doesn’t make it safe. Most cosmetic surgeries are considered major surgery. Would you get heart surgery if it wasn’t necessary? Would you want someone that you love to risk death to make their breasts somewhat perkier for a few more years? Or, do you love them as they are? Nowadays, plastic surgeons try to upsell additional procedures to clients to make an extra few bucks. Going in for a breast augmentation? Well, how about we suck a little fat out of your waist too. What they fail to tell you is that multiple cosmetic procedures, performed at the same time, significantly increases your chance of complications and death. There is a 1 in 3200 chance that patients that undergo multiple cometic procedures will die. Is it really worth it?
