Woman who wanted to surprise her husband with breast implants dies after heart stopped during surgery

A wife who wanted to “surprise” her husband with a boob job has died after falling into a coma more than a year ago.

Galina Rakushina was given anaesthetic on 17 April last year – and her heart stopped soon afterwards.

She was not monitored for several minutes and despite her heart being restarted her brain had been deprived of oxygen for too long.

An ambulance rushed her to hospital, but she was had slipped into a coma from which she never woke despite living another 13 months.

A criminal case has been launched into the mother-of-two’s death 13 months after she went in for the breast operation.

As in other cases, investigators are probing the quality of anaesthetic and drugs used ahead of the surgery amid concerns over the regulation of plastic surgery clinics in the city.

The 30-year-old, from Lipetsk, “wanted to surprise her husband by enlarging her breasts after having her children”, Ren TV reports.

“She had secretly saved money for the operation.

“Her heart was not beating for more than three minutes when doctors started reanimation,” the report added.

Her friend Kristina Korostina said: “All of us believed in a miracle and hoped for it.

“God has taken you – please know that we loved you. Rest in peace.”

Her husband Alexander Rakushin, who has been left to care for the couple’s two young children, has not commented on her death.

The Russian Investigative Committee – which probes serious crime – has launched criminal case into unsafe medical services by the clinic, which has not been named.

A separate probe is underway into deaths at a clinic called MedLounge where Natalia Orlova, a Moscow stock exchange trader, died last month.

She was the fourth patient to die in mysterious circumstances in a few weeks amid fears an “angel of death” nurse was to blame.

She had a facelift but afterwards suffered acute spinal pain followed by liver and kidney failure.

The 54-year-old died three weeks after her operation at MedLounge clinic as an urgent criminal probe was already underway into three other suspicious deaths of women plastic surgery patients.
