A diabetic woman has spent at least three days in intensive care, after emergency surgery to remove part of her intestines damaged in a liposuction procedure that apparently went wrong.
The 60-year-old is now believed to be on the mend.
The Straits Times understands that she underwent the fat-removal procedure on her abdomen last Friday at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), but still felt pain in the operation site two days later.
Sources said a scan on Sunday showed traumatic injury to her intestines.
Poor lady but you know, at 60 year of age and having diabetes, I hope the reason she needs liposuction is for medical and not cosmetic purposes.
