A 25-year-old woman residing in Missouri, underwent a Brazilian butt lift surgery in Miami, Florida, which went awry, resulting in her untimely death.

Ranika Hall would reside with her family and is survived by her one year old daughter. It was after her pregnancy that Hall felt her body was changing in ways she did not want it to.

Uncomfortable with her body, she took the step to undergo the butt lift surgery against the wishes of her family. Her mother and her siblings asked Hall not to opt for such a surgery. However, she was insistent and left for south Florida on March 15.

Little did Hall and her family know that her decision would result in a catastrophe.

What Happened To Hall?

Hall's cosmetic Brazilian butt lift surgery procedure was to be performed at the Eres Plastic Surgery Clinic, which is located in Hialeah, on March 16.

Reports claim that after the procedure was completed, the Hialeah Fire Department was urgently called in when Hall lost consciousness and stopped breathing. An hour later, Hall passed away.

The Miami Herald reported that the police in Hialeah are still investigating the case along with the Florida Department of Health and the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office. It is not known how and why Hall suffered such a tragic death.

The procedure involved sucking out the fat from the other regions of the body and injecting it back into the buttock section.

If Eres Plastic Surgery Clinic is to be believed, this procedure costs around $3500 and involves 12 areas of liposuction.

Unique Incident?

This is not the first time that the clinic has undergone such a situation where the patient died. Earlier in May 2016, it was reported that another patient undergoing the procedure at the same clinic met with the same fate. However, at the time, the Eres Plastic Surgery Clinic was called Encore Plastic Surgery Clinic.

However, it's not clear whether the same medical practitioner performed the surgery on both the women.

"Dr. Daniel Calva and Eres Plastic Surgery are deeply saddened by what has occurred and offer their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time," noted a statement from the clinic.

GoFundMe Campaign

The victim's mother Nicole Hall is still grappling with the incident and has created a GoFundMe campaign. Through this page, she intends to raise enough money to ship her daughter's body back to her hometown for a proper burial.

At the time of writing, the campaign had raised $5,880 in two days and has a goal of $7,000.
