The death of Donda West is one of the most controversial cases in the world of plastic surgery. The former chairwoman of Chicago State University’s English is reported to have died of complications from the plastic surgery procedures she had undergone. The mother of rapper Kanye West underwent breast reduction and liposuction procedures. Unfortunately, she suffered a cardiac arrest only a day after going through plastic surgery.
The noted scholar died at the age of 58 at Centinela Freeman Regional Medical Center after several attempts were made to revive her. Although there were no missteps during the plastic surgery operation, her pre-existing coronary artery disease put her at a very high risk for surgical complications which ultimately led to her death.
Prior to the breast reduction and liposuction procedures, Dr. West was advised to acquire a medical clearance to make sure that she is safe for the operation. Unfortunately, she missed her appointment with an internist who was supposed to be the one to conduct the tests.
