Botched plastic surgery leaves mum-of-two fighting for life with holes in organs

A mum-of-two has been left fighting for her life with holes in her vital organs after she underwent a botched cosmetic surgery in Spain.

Sara Gomez, 39, is currently in intensive care following a horror liposculpture procedure that took place at a medical centre in the city of Cartagena, Murcia on December 2.

The mum paid €5,700 (£4,800) for the operation at Virgen de la Caridad medical centre which aimed to remove her fat and stop more fat cells from being produced.

It was reported that Gomez "became a bit unstable" after the surgery, despite the doctor reportedly telling her family that the procedure had initially been a success.

Before the operation, Gomez reportedly told the doctor that she had already undergone liposuction on her stomach area, but she was allegedly told that it would not cause any problems.

Things then went from bad to worse after the mum was transferred to the Santa Lucia Hospital, where her family claim she was left "bleeding to death".

She underwent surgery after it was found she had suffered perforations and lesions to multiple organs, including her kidney, liver, duodenum and intestine, according to a report in La Sexta.

She remains in the hospital's ICU almost a month later, and her current condition was caused by medical negligence, according to her family, who say they intend to take legal action.

When she was first transferred to the hospital, it took several hours for her to be admitted, and her family believes that had that not been the case, she would not be in a critical condition now.

Sara's brother Ruben Gomez was quoted in Antena 3 as saying: "Not even in the extreme can they imagine the reality that we are going through right now.

"They kept her waiting there for four hours, bleeding to death, and she came here in a near-fatal state."

Ruben added, apparently referring to the plastic surgeon: "(T)he authorities here in Murcia could take some kind of precautionary measure towards this person."

Sara's ex-partner, Ezequiel Nicolas, told local media that the surgery did not have to be done "because it is something that could have been avoided due to the bad advice of a professional".

The case is ongoing.
