British woman, 28, dies two days after liposuction surgery in Turkey
- Diarra Akua Eunice Brown, 28, travelled to Istanbul for surgery on October 22
- Had a liposuction procedure to remove fat from her hips at a clinic in the city
- Two days later she fell ‘suddenly ill’ while having her dressings changed
- Brown died shortly after and doctor – identified only as S.G.B – has been arrested
A British woman who travelled to Turkey to have liposuction surgery has died two days after the operation took place.
Diarra Akua Eunice Brown, 28, had travelled to Istanbul to have the surgery at a clinic in the suburb of Bahcelievler, on the western side of the city, on October 22.
The operation was initially a success, but Brown fell ‘suddenly ill’ two days after the surgery while having her dressings changed and died within hours.

The doctor who performed the surgery, identified in Turkish media only as S.G.B., has since been arrested and a criminal investigation is underway.
S.G.B has been questioned by police, and told them that Brown suffered no ill effects after the operation and had been discharged the next day.
He said she had returned a day later to have her dressings changed, but her condition quickly deteriorated.
The medic added that he had no idea what had caused her sudden illness. The investigation is ongoing.
A post-mortem examination has been carried out, though the results have not yet been made public, and Brown’s body has been returned to the UK for burial.
Social media posts from family and friends paid tribute to her, describing her as a ‘beautiful soul’ and a ‘close friend’.
‘This must be a dream,’ one post said. ‘Still can’t come to terms with this yet.’
‘I miss you angel. I’m devastated you were taken away way before your time,’ said another.
A third suggested that Diarra had been a nursery worker, though this has not been confirmed by MailOnline.
