Following the incident where a 23-year-old girl died during a liposuction surgery at an unlicensed beauty salon in Cheras, the police have arrested two women who are owners of the salon.

According to Kuala Lumpur police chief Datuk Saiful Azly Kamaruddin, the suspects aged 49 and 23 who are mother and daughter, were detained under Section 304 A of the Penal Code for causing death by negligence, reported Berita Harian.

“Both suspects are now remanded for three days starting 19 to 21 October to assist in the investigation,” he said at a press conference at the Sentul District Police Headquarters.

Preliminary police investigations also discovered that the beauty centre was legally registered but did not have a certificate to perform any liposuction procedure.

Furthermore, despite knowing that the centre did not have a certificate to do liposuction, the victim had agreed to continue with the procedure, said Saiful Azly.

After being injected on her arm, the victim began having difficulty breathing and lost consciousness. The victim was then rushed to the Tuanku Mukhriz Chancellor’s Hospital (HCTM) where she was pronounced dead.

Following news about this incident, the Malaysian Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (MSPRS) released a statement, reminding the public to be aware of beauty centres promoting medical/surgical aesthetic procedures through printing, electronic and social media platforms.

“With regards with recent reports of complications of aesthetic procedures performed by non-qualified practitioners, we would like to remind the public of the growing numbers of beauty centres/medispas who are promoting medical/surgical aesthetic procedures through the printed, electronic and social media platforms,” they wrote.

“They may disguise themselves as “medical doctors” or use fancy medical terms to entice their clients to do the procedures. They often offer a remarkably lower price compared to a licensed medical clinic/hospital.”

“Higher complication rates and even death have been reported in these unlicensed practices. It is crucial to check on the invasiveness, risk involved, premise license, and service provider qualification before undergoing any aesthetic procedure. If in doubt, please contact the relevant authorities for conformation.”

The MSPRS then urges the public to refer to the list of medical practitioners who are licensed to offer medical aesthetic services in Malaysia according to their specialty at the Ministry of Health’s medical practitioner registry.
