Woman died after buttocks enhancement surgery

A Post-Mortem report shows a Las Vegas woman who died after an illegal buttocks enhancement surgery in a makeshift clinic run by a Colombian couple had an adverse reaction to local anaesthesia.

County Coroner Mike Murphy said yesterday that 42-year-old Elena Caro died from an allergic reaction to the tumescent anaesthesia commonly used in cosmetic surgery procedures. Ms Caro's death has been ruled accidental.

Mr Murphy said the post-mortem did not preclude criminal charges.

Ruben Matallana-Galvas and his wife Carmen Torres-Sanchez face charges of murder and practising medicine without a licence in relation to Ms Caro's death in April. They have pleaded not guilty.
