(Scroll down for video) A family is heart-broken over the sudden death of their loved one who died during cosmetic surgery.
32-year-old Maria Christian of Miami-Dade County, Florida, underwent a cosmetic procedure at Vanity Cosmetic Surgery.
Towards the end of the procedure, Christian suddenly went into cardiac arrest. She was taken to the Kendall Regional Medical Center, where she later died.
Her devastated family said that Christian was getting a tummy tuck at the time.
Christian had two surgeries, including a Brazilian butt lift, at the Vanity Cosmetic Surgery center before the tragic incident.
Her sister, Carolina Flor, said that Christian had a nice family. She left behind her husband and two sons, a 12-year-old boy and her 2-year-old son, who celebrated his birthday just days before she died.
Flor is trying to discourage others from undergoing unnecessary surgeries. She said that her sister “was a beautiful woman, just the way she was.”
