18 year old Linda Perez remained in a coma after undergoing breast implant surgery at the Florida Coral Gables Cosmetic Center, her attorney said Wednesday.
Perez attorney, Mark Eiglarsh, said she had been in a coma at Mercy Hospital for 16 days.
“Unfortunately, Linda is not doing well,” said Eiglarsh. “A healthy woman goes in to have a simple routine procedure and comes out a vegetable in a coma.”
Eiglarsh said Linda Perez, suffered extensive heart and brain damage as a result of the procedure.
“She’s having a tracheotomy. That means she has to go under general anesthesia again, and it was under general anesthesia where we believe the complications occurred last time,” he said. “Question is: was it the doctors involved that put her in this state?”
On its website, Coral Gables Cosmetic Center bills itself as Miami’s trusted plastic surgery center “with board certified surgeons, a center with 12 years in the industry and with a high rate of patient satisfaction.”
Eiglarsh said her procedure was performed on August 12 by Dr. Jacob Freiman, and Dr. Mario Alberto Diaz, an anesthesiologist.
