Dying for Better Boobs

 

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."

  Where was her parents  
 
And why did the surgeon agree to this?

What? I don't think I understood your question.... but if I am reading it right...

18 = Doesn't need parents to be involved to get it.

18 = Doctor has no reason to say no.

  It's true Jane  
 
I honestly desire for people to be more comfortable with their natural bodies, and focus on health and hygiene over some physical "imperfection". That said, this is her right, she is 18, and by law, old enough to make her own decisions. Unfortunately, she had a rare allergy to the anesthetic - it could have happened at any time, anywhere. She might have been in an accident and needed surgery, she might have needed her appendix out. Basically it was a time bomb. Nothing to do with the breast modifications really.

  Where were your parents...  
 
when you were dropped on your head. Did you even read the summary?

I don't know which of us you are specifically referring to, perhaps you could be a little bit clearer on that - maybe a little less insulting and abusive. No one has said anything here to warrant that kind of attack. Why so rude?

  @Lauries  
 
The comment was not aimed at you but rather captainJane. No offense to her either really but i just read one of her other posts and it confused the hell out of me and it kind of carried over to this post. Oh and to your question ... Because my parents didn't give me enough attention or perhaps because it was the wrong sort of attention?
 
  by: KaLtEx   03/27/2008 06:55 AM     
  Well  
 
Everyone is right she was 18, but one would hope in a perfect world that the young lady felt safe enough to discuss this with her parents. Yes the final decision was her's but I do see where Jane is coming from.

Lauries is right, no matter what surgery this young lady may have had this would have happened. And any surgery has the potential for this and many other complications to happen. I would encourage anyone that is having ANY procedure done look at the potential risks and if it is an elective surgery really think about if this is what you need.

It is a very sad world where someone did not tell this young woman that breasts are usually asymetrical to varying degrees it is how our bodies are. Also an inverted nipple is not the end of the world, the only real problem she would have faced was a possibility of having difficulty breast feeding. And if you know a young woman remind them that their breasts will continue to change into their 20's so what they see as wrong could correct itself of even by the time they get older not even matter.

  I don't know  
 
Which it would be, or if it be other. Regardless, if you feel the urge to stab at another person like that, I can only feel sorrow for you.

There is no need for it, and it surely does no good to anyone.

Jane has her difficulties, but she does her best, and she is one of the sweetest people you could know.
 
  by: lauriesman     03/27/2008 07:02 AM     
  Very True  
 
Jane is one of the most honest, sincere and kindest people I have met on this site. Anyone that is lucky enough to get to know her considers themselves lucky, I know I do.
 
  by: TaraB     03/27/2008 07:05 AM     
  Ya know...  
 
A lot of women take great lengths to get implants and fix imperfections such as these yet a lot of the women I seem to encounter never that eager to take their shirt off in for me.

  @KaLtEx  
 
I think you were the one to be dropped on your head as a baby. Criticism is a good thing, when it is used to improve. Insults are a waste of time & bandwidth and don't add anything to the debate.

  @lauriesman  
 
But if she had been under the anasthesia after being in an accident etc she would have been in a hospital not a plastic surgery clinic. She would have had the nessecery medication on hand to save her.
Unfortunate timing for her that she chose cosmetic surgery before ever having a cause to go under General but still.

Who are you to say she didn't discuss this with her parents ? Why do you think her parents would not have agreed ? Why do you think they were not there, waiting for the end of her surgery ?

CaptainJane's question was entirely valid, and you were rude.

  So ?  
 
What does her age have to do with the genetic reaction that killed her?
 
  by: Vaginarian   03/27/2008 02:03 PM     
  Why is this news?  
 
The girl was 18 - old enough to choose breast augmentation surgery. She died in a way that she could have if she had had her tonsils removed. I don't think this is news or anything that needed to be reported at all.
 
  by: Rowdigrl   03/27/2008 02:03 PM     
  @Rowdigrl  
 
Sure it should be reported, someone died! Also maybe it will make some women think twice about breast augmentation. Personally I dont like large ones, small handfull good enough for me!
 
  by: joshjje   03/27/2008 02:15 PM     
  @joshjje  
 
Well then maybe the headline should have been "Rare genetic allergy killed 18 year old during surgery" Not Dying for Better Boobs. The story here is not that an 18 year old was getting a boob job, it was the cause of her death.
 
  by: Rowdigrl   03/27/2008 02:19 PM     
  Do People  
 
read other peoples comment and arrive to make one out of their $hit@oles, or is it simply get angry and make a comment.

One is jumping on CJ for no apparent reason, there is another one who has broom stuck up somewhere in their orifice and shove their opinion to what they like, how big or small they like.

She did not Die for "Better Boobs" She died from complications and not only that, in the summary it says "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." What part of this summary is not freaking clear..
I am giving this title 2/10.
 
  by: isuzu     03/27/2008 02:28 PM     
  Regardless of what people think of boob jobs  
 
it's completely irrelevant.

This young woman died because of a rare allergic reaction to anaesthetic, she could have died getting any other operation, it was just unfortunate that the operation that killed her was one that she didn't actually need.

As for people not liking big fake boobs, she wasn't getting huge implants. Her boobs were of 2 different sizes, which is pretty common anyway, she also had an inverted nipple. So she was probably getting one breast slightly lifted or having a small implant inserted into one breast, as well as having her nipple corrected. She was hardly trying to be the next Pamela Anderson!

"This is something that can happen in any surgery"

Bullshit! He's just covering his ass cause he doesn't want to get sued.
 
  by: hedron   03/27/2008 03:24 PM     
  for healthy breasts, not just pretty ones...  
 
it's my understanding that inverted nipples can be a precursor to breast cancer. the surgery may not have been done simply for aesthetic reasons.
 
  by: drbsbtrcup   03/27/2008 04:20 PM     
  she was bound to  
 
get surgery of some sort eventually, and when she did so, she would have probably died at that point. I'm sure no one knew of her rare genetic condition. What kind of operation it was at this point is kind of irrelevant.

"Who are you to say she didn't discuss this with her parents ? Why do you think her parents would not have agreed ? Why do you think they were not there, waiting for the end of her surgery ? "

Woah buddy you seem to assume a lot there. What I said was "Everyone is right she was 18, but one would hope in a perfect world that the young lady felt safe enough to discuss this with her parents."

I simply stated that one would hope she felt safe enough to discuss it. I made no assumptions that she did or did not.

I will say though that today most people see a pill or surgery as a cure to what is wrong with them. They do not take the side effects of surgery or medication seriously as they should. In this young ladys case it wouldn't have mattered sadly.
 
  by: TaraB     03/27/2008 09:36 PM     
  @sxs  
 
That depends really - in modern days the observation period post surgery has really been cut down. Depending on what she had done, she may still have been discharged and gone home. The reaction occurred the day after the surgery.

Huh? How do you figure exactly?
 
  by: gtg833b     03/28/2008 05:42 PM     
  wow  
 
Why not just have some dantrolene in stock? Its not like its that rare that you shouldn't even have the precautionary measures in place. I'm not sure of the typical plastic surgeons policies but this seems negligent to me.

Going to sleep for a routine procedure and never waking up. Hows that for a way to die?
 
  by: Kuhl   03/28/2008 07:23 PM     
  It's true  
 
that hospitals kick people out too soon due to orders from insurance companies that practice medicine remotely without a license. The insurance companies would like to see drive-throughs like McDonald's whereby heart transplants are performed like an assembly line with no in-hospital stay. They are murdering patients by their inept requirements.

First off Kaltex, you are clearly being a Jack ass of all trades.

SEcond off @ Hedron
you said this -- and I quote you on it

""This is something that can happen in any surgery"

Bullshit! He's just covering his ass cause he doesn't want to get sued.""

You can't sue a man that you signed a paper that states if you die, you don't hold that place of practice liable. She was 18. Her parents probably agreed to it because she was probably complaining since she was 14. Very rare, and very sad. However, that being said, it's time to pull the reality card. And today's reality card says "SHIT HAPPENS, and then you die."

Such as life.

this is true, however, who do you think paid for it? This person would have/should have said no!

Actually, legally you cannot sign away or waive your rights to sound health and body and well being - you can only sign something that indicates you've been advised of the risks.

  Nice to see some good people left in here.  
 
"18 = Doesn’t need parents to be involved to get it.”

Not by law no, not in the UK anyway, but if this kid had a Mom and Dad to turn too, maybe she would have reconsidered.
I thought I knew it all at 16 but I knew nothing at all until my mid twenties I really believe the frontal lobe of the brain. This is the area where they logic, reason, is still not fully developed with most people until well into your twenties.

18 = Doctor has no reason to say no."
I know someone that once wanted plastic surgery and was flatly refused as the caring surgeon (who was badly told off at the time) felt it was an unnecessary operation, he also said others may let you go ahead with this but they are just in it for the money that is what I call a good surgeon.
I hope my girl would come to me about making such a decision, I can not force her to listen but at least add some more thought into it.
“when you were dropped on your head. Did you even read the summary ”KaLtEx I wonder what gross species created you? What a snide remark, from a nasty little stench, but I guess you have been told this sort of thing before, it shows in how to relate to people you know absolutely nothing about. Now please crawl back into the cesspit from where you came. Goodbye!
Sorry Lauriesman, I will never be a sweet as you my friend. :)
Thank you! Tara and Stretch and Tibs. :)

  Her parents WERE involved  
 
I saw this report on the news last night. Her whole family had supported her in getting the surgery. The reason why this is reported is not because of how she died, but because she died while 18, a cheerleader, and getting a boob job. I guarantee you, no matter how it happens, if an 18 year old cheerleader and boobs are involved it will make the news. Always.
