Usher, Usher, Usher, why didn’t you call me? Your wife was only four months post-partum and has suffered cardiac arrest after plastic surgery! Here’s a man, who lives in Atlanta, where I’m based, who takes the advice of a friend. Obviously, someone who knows nothing about plastic surgery, and recommends for his wife to go to Brazil to have two very common surgeries – liposuction and a tummy tuck- that are performed in abundance here in the United States. One of the first things I worn my clients about is to have surgery close to home in case there are complications. One of the biggest things I think Tameka, Usher’s wife made, is that she was only post partum four months. Any reputable plastic surgeon wouldn’t touch a post-partum patient until at least six months but most won’t for even a year, depending on what the surgery is.
I hate it when I read stories like this. Here’s a woman, who obviously jumped into something that she knew nothing about and has taken a huge risk. I hope Tameka will be back in the states soon, where she can heal and be with her family again.
A story like this is always very disturbing to me. Here you have a famous artist, that takes advice from a friend that obviously knows nothing about cosmetic surgery and recommends for his wife to go to Brazil, to have a very common procedures performed that very well could have been done here in the United States. Brazil has some excellent doctors, in fact, many of them are pioneers in the industry, but I can promise you one thing, NO reputable American doctor would have ever performed a cosmetic surgery procedure on a woman who was only post-partum four months. This is so unnecessary and so sad. I hope others can learn from this unfortunate situation.
