Girl Left Brain Damaged After Doing Something Women Do All The Time

Linda Perez thought she would come out of surgery with fuller breasts, but when her surgery was over she went into a coma for months. The discount boob job she got at Coral Gables Cosmetic Center in Miami, FL left her severely brain dead.

The doctor who administered her anesthesia, Dr. Mario Albert Diaz, was convicted of felony drug trafficking and previously had his medical license suspended, according to MailOnline. Perez, who was 18 at the time she underwent the $2,800 breast implant surgery, cannot walk, eat, bathe or go to the bathroom without help, and is no longer capable of taking care of her 6-year-old son.

Perez had researched the clinic prior to her surgery, Diaz wasn’t listed on their website. Though the family was able to recover some funds through a lawsuit, it wasn’t much since the clinic was uninsured and the doctor only had minimal coverage.

Dr. Jacob Freiman performed Diaz’s surgery and said information about Perez’s medical history, such as issues with anesthesia during the birth of her son, was kept from him in order to keep him from calling off the plastic surgery, according to MailOnline.

Perez’s family is now asking the public to donate to their GoFundMe to help cover the cost of what they say are “astronomical” therapy and medical expenses. Their expenses are estimated to cost millions.

“Unless the public helps, she’s going to have nothing,” the family’s lawyer told the press. “This was a tragedy that should not have occurred.”
