The Premiere Site For Celebrity Plastic Surgery By A Real Plastic Surgeon
I'm a Michigan-based Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who has been featured on Dr. 90210. The info here is my opinion alone and should not be taken as fact or as medical advice. I've not treated any of the celebrities presented here.

There are a few news stories that are reporting the current status of Usher's wife, Tameka Foster, who had complications while undergoing plastic surgery in Brazil. They all state that she is in stable condition, which is good. Details are still sketchy, but they include a possible cardiac and respiratory arrest during liposuction surgery. The anesthesia has been implicated as a possible cause, and she may have been induced into a coma for 24 hours.
Hopefully she hasn't suffered anoxic brain injury or another very serious complication. This story continues to develop, and I hope she comes out of it ok.
