Yesterday, The Sydney Morning Herald, published a story of yet another cosmetic procedure gone terribly wrong.

A 42 year old woman underwent a liposuction and tummy tuck procedure performed by Dr Daniel Aronov. Following the procedure, the woman reportedly lost significant amounts of blood, and was found unconscious by her husband, before being rushed to the emergency unit of St Vincent’s Hospital.

Professor Mark Ashton, plastic surgeon, commented that the woman suffered “significant and major blood loss that was a life-threatening, time critical emergency.”
