18-year-old cheerleader Stephanie Kuleba died on Sunday after a breast augmentation surgery went wrong. Kuleba felt her breasts were asymmetrical and one aureola was inverted so underwent the surgery to fix the flaws.
24 hours after the surgery she had a rare genetic reaction to the anesthesia known as malignant hyperthermia. She was rushed to hospital but was too late in receiving the antidote.
Dr. Richard D’Amico, of American Society of Plastic Surgeons said, "This is something that can happen in any surgery, on any part of the body,in any setting. The FDA recommends that no one under 18 should have breast augmentations."
