Dallas Woman Left in Coma After Botched Nose Job Procedure in Mexico

Woman On Life Support After Botched Plastic Surgery

A Texas woman who traveled to Mexico for a nose job at a cheap price is now on life support after complications from the procedure.

Laura Avila, 36, booked an appointment for the rhinoplasty procedure, estimated to be less than a third of the average United States cost, October 30 at the Rino Center in Juarez, Mexico, the Daily Mail reported.

But that attempt to put her to sleep went terribly wrong, with fiance Enrique Cruz explaining: 'They injected anesthesia in her spine at the clinic and instead of flowing down her body, it went into her brain which caused severe swelling'.

Laura's family has to decide very soon whether to pull life support.

Laura Avilar traveled to Rinocenter in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico on October 30.

The real estate agent, who is also a singer and dancer, was under care at the Mexico clinic for four days before she was transported to a university hospital in El Paso, Texas.

Avila reportedly suffered four minutes of cardiac arrest. However, it took eight hours to have her transferred to a hospital in Juarez, Mexico. The family has created a GoFundMe page to help with medical costs.

They claimed she has been experiencing seizures that indicate she suffered a brain injury.

The patient's sister, Angie Avila, told the station her sister was drawn to do the procedure in Mexico because "the price, compared to those in USA, was less than a third".

Laura's sister Angie Avila said: 'They say she suffered severe brain damage so much so that she will never be our Laura again...

Cruz was forced to spend eight hours waiting for news on Laura with staff at the cosmetic surgery facility in Juarez only saying that they were unable to perform the procedure because her blood pressure had dropped.

"As long as my heart is beating, I will make sure they pay for what they did and this can't happen to anybody else", Angie said.

"She's been in a bed".

After an alleged struggle with the Mexican hospital to have Avila moved to a USA hospital, she was transported to a hospital in El Paso. "There is truly nothing that woman can not execute with perfection-she's the best cook I know, she's a fantastic dancer, a powerhouse singer, and she gives everyone a reason to smile", Angie wrote. Angie said they have family in Mexico and growing up often crossed the border to visit from El Paso. Really we want a second opinion'.

Three major hospitals in Dallas have reportedly turned the family away because she does not have insurance. Investigators seized medical records and other evidence to determine whether medical negligence occurred.

Angie Avila has set up a GoFundMe page, which has reached almost US$70,000 of its US$150,000 goal as of late Tuesday.
