A young British mum has died during ‘Brazilian bum lift’ cosmetic surgery at a celebrity clinic in Turkey.
Leah Cambridge, 29, reportedly collapsed and died in the operating theatre during the £3,000 procedure at the Elite Aftercare clinic in Izmir.
The clinic is a favourite of celebrities such as Towie star Lauren Goodger, Geordie Shore’s Chloe Ferry and former Tottenham footballer Jamie O’Hara.
Mum-of-three Leah, from Leeds, is thought to have died from complications although the cause of death has not yet been revealed.
Leah’s heartbroken partner, Scott Franks, has flown to Turkey to bring her body home and to find out what went wrong.
Writing on Facebook, Scott, 31, said: "I can’t believe I’m setting off to say my goodbyes to my little darling. This is going to be the hardest thing I’ve done. I can’t imagine being in house without her."
In another post, Scott, Leah’s partner of 10 years, wrote: "I just wish this was a bad dream.
"Two days ago I was happy. Now I’m a broken man and will be forever. I’m hurt so bad and this is only the start. My life has crashed."
He continued: "It’s like a nightmare. Leah wanted to get married and we definitely would have in next few years but instead I’m going to have to plan a funeral.
"I’m looking at her face on video and I think it can’t be true."
Beautician Leah travelled to the Elite Aftercare clinic in Izmir, Turkey, for the Brazilian butt lift.
Towie stars Lauren Goodger and Amber Dowding and Geordie Shore’s Chloe Ferry have undergone the procedure at the clinic, according to its website.
The operation takes between one and two hours and involves taking fat from the waist or stomach and inserting it in the buttocks through a tiny cannula.
The clinic’s website says the popular procedure is usually carried out by surgeon Dr Ali Üçkan, but it is not known if he operated on Leah.
A warning on the website reads: "Surgery should not be taken lightly as there are risks in all procedures.
"Complications can rarely occur. Although uncommon, areas of concern can include; bleeding, infection, anaesthesia problems, fat necrosis and decreased sensation."
