A woman has died in Mexico after attempting to perform liposuction surgery on herself, NY Post reported. 

The woman, identified as only Carina, was 30 years old and worked as a nurse at a clinic named Clinica Amper in Mexico. Carina reportedly performed liposuction surgery on herself against doctors’ orders and administered her own anesthesia causing her untimely death. Carina was found unconscious by an employee who immediately called 911. Unfortunately, when they arrived on the scene they were not able to revive her. 

Dr. Rolando Samper Mendoza, who owns the clinic, said he was not present during the procedure nor did he give 

“authorization or permission”

to Carina, he told Jam Press.

“One of my nurses named Carina … decided on her own to perform abdominal liposuction with local anesthetic… The result of this incomprehensible action was that she died as a result of the massive absorption of anesthetic that she administered herself,”

Mendoza explained.
