A social media influencer died while she was undergoing a $5,500 (over Rs 4 Lakh) nose job at an elite Russian clinic after her body had a possibly deadly reaction to the anaesthetic used.
Marina Lebedeva was once hailed by her followers as an image guru. The 31-year-old wanted to "correct" the shape of her nose through rhinoplasty, according to reports.
She was administered an anaesthetic prior to the cosmetic procedure at the clinic.
Her temperature reportedly soared, possibly as an adverse reaction to the anaesthetic substance used during her procedure.
Even though an ambulance was called as soon as the clinic realized that there were complications, Lebedeva could not be saved. She died as the plastic surgeons and paramedics fought to save her at Artibeaut clinic in St Petersburg.
Other influencers whose deaths made headlines recently include Albert Dyrlund, Julia Hennessy, Odalis Santos Mena and Sofia Cheung.
