A Cautionary Tale; British Woman Dies During £3000 Bum Lift in Turkey

A 29-year-old mother, Leah Cambridge has died after travelling to Turkey for a “bum lift” operation.

During a time of rising beautifying treatments; from fillers to surgery in order to obtain a perfect body, Leah Cambridge's tale should serve as a severe warning of the dangers of going under the knife.

Leah Cambridge died on the operating table at Elite Aftercare in Izmir, a clinic used previously by two Towie stars; namely Lauren Goodger and Amber Dowding, as well as Chloe Khan, from The X Factor and Celebrity Big Brother, have all undergone cosmetic procedures at the clinic.

The Brazilian butt lift surgery involves taking fat from other areas of the body, such as the waist or stomach, and then putting it into the buttocks, a treatment popularized by those seeking a Kim Kardashian-esque hourglass figure.

A warning posted on the Elite Aftercare website, reads: "Any type of surgery should not be taken lightly as there are risks in all procedures. The safest aspect of the Brazilian Butt Lift is that it lets your surgeon use your own body tissue to augment your buttock. This avoids the need for any foreign material or implants. Complications can rarely occur. The vast majority of complications are related to the liposuction portion of the procedure and can usually be managed with additional liposuction. Although uncommon, areas of concern can include; bleeding, infection, anesthesia problems, fat necrosis and decreased sensation."
