A bride-to-be has passed away after undergoing surgery to get bigger breasts in a bid to showcase her cleavage in a low-cut wedding dress.
The 21-year-old beautician, Alessia Neboso, was getting ready to marry her longtime boyfriend, Mario Lucchesi, before the tragedy occurred.
It was reported that a few days after the breast implant surgery, Alessia started feeling sick. She reportedly developed a high fever, fatigue, a cough, weakness, and gastrointestinal issues.
When her condition became critical, her family took her to the emergency room at the Villa dei Fiori Clinic in Acerra, near Naples, Italy, on September 20.
The doctor-in-charge, Dr Feliciano Ciccarelli told local media,
“The colleagues on duty immediately understood that the situation was very serious.
Her functional indicators were all altered; the kidneys were already failing, her white blood cell count was at 17,000, and she was starting to have difficulty breathing.
The normal range for a white blood cell count is typically between 4,000 and 11,000 per microlitre.
We subjected her to all possible tests. We wanted to understand where the sepsis was localised.
We did an ultrasound and a CT scan of the abdomen, another CT scan of the chest, from which we understood that the problem was coming from the lungs.”
She was eventually stabilized and taken to the ICU. Sadly, she died from a cardiac arrest a few hours later, despite efforts to keep her alive.
A close friend of the deceased, who spoken anonymously to the press, said:
“Her dream was to get married wearing a beautiful low-cut dress that would highlight her new cleavage.
Alessia had always had a complex about her small breasts, even though they weren’t really that small, in fact: in my opinion, they were almost perfect.
But she didn’t want to listen to advice and had made up her mind to have it done; she didn’t care what others said.
She didn’t even want to listen to her boyfriend; he wasn’t in favour either.
When she came to my house for a manicure, she talked about nothing else, and she was very happy to have found the courage to go to the surgeon.”
Meanwhile, Alessia’s devastated family has filed a complaint and police have launched an investigation.
Her parents said,
“If there are liabilities, they must come to light. If Alessia died because of the doctors, we want justice.
‘She was doing great, she was beautiful, young, and healthy. They must tell us what happened in that operating room.”
