Mother, 47, dies after undergoing whole-body liposuction at Russian clinic: Family claim she was pressured into procedure after going in for a facelift

Police are investigating how a woman died when her condition deteriorated ‘catastrophically’ two days after she underwent whole-body liposuction at a Russian clinic.

Anna Andrea, 47, had fat removed from her face, neck, chin, breasts, stomach, hips, flanks, back, inner and outer thighs, buttocks, knees, calves and ankles in a single procedure.

A top Russian plastic surgeon Maria Burlova, head of Abriell Clinic, carried out the operation in St Petersburg, but may now face jail.

The dead woman’s husband and daughter said they were not told when she was rushed to a state hospital as complications developed two days after the procedure.

She is suspected to have suffered a heart attack and body swelling.

Her shocked daughter Kira Fedora said her mother had planned only a facelift.

‘She only discussed this procedure with me, and also with her friends and my father,’ said the bereaved daughter.

She claimed her mother was ‘pressured’ into surgery on not only her face but her entire body, which the clinic actively promotes.

Her mother had undergone heart checks before the surgery and ‘everything was fine’, she said.

After the full body liposuction, her mother communicated with her family – but this suddenly ceased as her condition deteriorated.

‘We have already filed a lawsuit against this clinic,’ said the daughter.

Dr Burlova has not commented.

‘We are the leaders in the Russian market for a combined plastic operation,’ states the surgeon in a promotion video.

‘Our clinical team performs complete beautification.

‘The rejuvenation of the entire body and face at one time, in one operation.

‘You will receive a high level of service and professional support at every stage of your stay in our clinic.’

A probe by the Russian Investigative Committee is underway.

The clinic is suspected of ‘performing work or providing services that do not meet safety requirements’.

This could lead to a maximum six year jail term for causing death by ‘negligence’.
