Woman Dies After Brazilian Butt Lift Surgery At Florida Clinic

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Authorities in Florida are investigating after a 25-year-old Missouri woman died after undergoing a cosmetic procedure at a Miami-area surgery center.

Police in Hialeah, Florida, said in a news release that Ranika Hall of Kansas City died Thursday after the mother of a 1-year-old daughter underwent surgery on her buttocks at the Eres Plastic Surgery clinic in Hialeah.

Police said emergency responders were sent to the clinic about 9 p.m. Thursday after fielding a call that Hall was not breathing. She died about an hour later at a hospital.

The Miami Herald reports that Hialeah police are investigating with the Florida Department of Health and the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office.

Hall’s death came nearly a year after a 29-year-old West Virginia mother of two died after a similar procedure at the clinic, which at that time was known as Encore Plastic Surgery.

The clinic added that the cause of Hall’s death has not yet been determined.
