Following the death of a woman after undergoing a cosmetic surgery has urged the implementation of national reforms covering cosmetic surgeries.
After undergoing liposuction technique at Dr George Kerry's North Adelaide clinic in March, 2008, 28-year old, Lauren Michelle Edgar ended up in struggling from complications due to the procedure, which ultimately became the cause of her death.
An inquest into her death heard the Deputy State Coroner Anthony Schapel asserting that Ms Edgar was not provided with proper care after the $7000 cosmetic surgery.
He further claimed that Ms Edgar suffered immense pain after the surgery, which should have been adequately handled by the doctors at the clinic. However, her problem was not sufficiently addressed.
Mr. Schapel said, "Notations made by Dr Kerry made to see Ms Edgar that afternoon were belatedly made at a time after Ms Edgar's hospitalization and serious illness was known to Dr Kerry".
Further, he claimed that even in case Ms Edgar was analyzed on Friday afternoon, then she should have been transferred to hospital, as her condition was worse.
After Ms Edgar was relieved from the hospital, she had a conversation with Dr. Kerry, but she was not examined and was prescribed Panadeine Forte to comfort her pain.
Ms Edgar died due to infection, which affected her legs and pelvis.
