A young woman in New York, lost her life as a result of her obsession with plastic surgery, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

25-year-old Janelle Edwards of the Bronx, recently flew to the Dominican Republic, where she underwent several procedures, including breast implants, butt enhancement and tummy tuck.

Edwards chose to have the procedures overseas due to the cheaper cost. After the procedures at a clinic in Santo Domingo, Edwards flew back home.

For about a month, Edwards complained about pain in her breasts and stomach. On Thursday around 8:00 p.m., Edwards was found unconscious behind the wheel of her car.

She was rushed to the Montefiore Medical Center, where she was declared dead.

A doctor said that Edwards died of a blood clot that was probably caused by the plastic surgeries she underwent overseas.
