Woman Dies During Liposuction at Home

By Associated Press

July 31, 2006, 11:46 AM EDT

FRAMINGHAM, Mass. -- A man was arrested on charges of practicing medicine without a license after a woman died during a liposuction procedure performed in the basement of a home, authorities said Monday.

Luis Carlos Ribeiro, a native of Brazil, was to be arraigned in district court on Monday following the death of a 23-year-old woman Sunday.

The Middlesex District Attorney's Office would not release the identity of the woman who died. An autopsy was scheduled.

Police also charged Ribeiro with drug possession. A spokeswoman for the district attorney's office said she did not know what type of drugs.

At what point did this seem like a good idea to this poor woman.

Sad.

This happens all the time in Miami. Seems Brazilians think this is similar to a hair cut as far as complexity goes.

They should just stick to the waxing. That is brutal enough.

Don't buy the Ronco lipo kit.

Those are the left over Bass-o-matic machines.

Yes. A friend of mine described the ordeal in an email. It was the funniest thing I've ever read. Said she never strung together so many curse words in one sentence in her entire life....

It's like my dad always said. He said, Son, when in doubt about major surgery, always seek the services from a two-bit Brazilian named Luis.

The redneck lipo kit:
1 shop vac
1 bowie knife
1 bottle whiskey

Use half of whiskey to sterilize shop vac nozzle, knife, and area of incision. The other half goes into the patient.

Just doing the liposuctions Americans won't do.

I just heard from a good friend. The dead young woman (only 23) was very close to his family, working for them for a number of years. I don't know all the details of her death, only that the families (hers and his) are in shock and obviously overwrought with grief. Obviously this whole matter is so tragic, being so avoidable and senseless.
