Correctional officer dies after Brazilian butt lift by unlicensed doctor following ‘lipo-tourism’ warnings

AN AMERICAN correctional officer, 49, has died after reportedly traveling to the Dominican Republic to have a Brazilian butt lift performed by an unlicensed doctor.

The officer suffered a massive stroke after receiving the fat transfer from a doctor previously prosecuted for operating without a license as the Department of Health warns of “lipo-tourism”.

Tandra Bowser-Williams flew to Santo Domingo on May 13 to be seen by plastic surgeon Dr. Hector Cabral to get a Brazilian butt lift, her husband Curtis told NY Daily News.

Tandra Curtis reportedly said he’ll love the results — even though Cabral faced two counts in 2011 of operating without a medical license and of conspiracy.

Cabral was accused of charging fees without a license for consultations and investigations in New York.

He then persuaded patients to come to the Dominican Republic for cheap surgeries that left some women disfigured.

Cabral pleaded guilty to one count of unlawful practice of medicine and then returned to the Dominican Republic.

“Her exact words to me were, ‘You’re going to love Dr. Cabral’s work,'” Curtis said of his wife.

“I didn’t care. I accepted my wife for who she was,” Curtis admitted.

The two had been married since 1996.

“Everyone is desperate. She was the heart, the lifeline of the family. The heartbeat,” her 26-year-old partner said after her death.

After reaching an agreement not to serve jail time, Cabral opened the Centro Internacional de Cirugia Plastica Avanzada, where Tandra underwent surgery, NY Daily News reported.

“They got my wife out of her medically induced coma so she could unlock her phone. That was how she was able to get in touch with me,” Curtis said of Cabral’s surgery.

Tandra’s surgeon told Curtis that a stroke “swallowed her brain.”

Curtis said he could hear his wife complaining about “her stomach and her butt” in the background.

Tandra later died before Curtis could fly to the DR to be with her.

The New York City Department of Health warned of “lipo-tourism” in 2017 after eight patients in New York City and two in Connecticut developed severe symptoms following procedures, the NY Post reported.

All patients went to the Dominican Republic for their procedures and developed dangerous bacterial infections, abdominal abscesses, wound discharge and fever.

However, none of these patients reportedly died.

Tandra’s death appears not to be under investigation, the Daily News reported.
