On November 10, 2007, Dr. Donda West died. Donda, mother of entertainer Kanye West, reportedly suffered complications following a tummy tuck, liposuction and breast reduction. The procedures were performed by a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, Dr. Jan Adams.
It was reported that Dr. West, who was 58 years old, did not heed the advice of Dr. Andre Abloolian who recommended that she get medical clearance from her internist before surgery. West allegedly ignored Abloolian’s advice, and instead, sought the services of Dr. Jan Adams, who went ahead and performed the three procedures on West. The next day, Dr. West was dead.
