The Doctors meet Kris, a victim of medical tourism. Kris says she was targeted by a recruiter and for over a year after she began following the clinic's social media group. She says she was told she was going to look perfect and have the curves and sex appeal she always wanted.
Kris recounts waking from her surgery in a puddle of her own blood and says the nurse dragged a weak Kris into the shower to clean her off.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon notes that no matter what type of surgery you have, that you should wait at least a couple of days for the incisions to close to a certain degree to avoid infection from tap water getting into them.
A few days after her surgery, Kris says she developed a high fever and her body went into shock. She was admitted to a hospital in Los Angeles where the doctors told her that she almost went into cardiac arrest. She was given four blood transfusions.
Kris says she contacted her recruiter to share her experience and was told that everything went perfectly and the recruiter didn’t understand why she had issues. Once the recruiter found out Kris was in the hospital, she cut all ties and blocked her from the social media groups, so that she couldn’t share her terrifying story.
After spending two months in the hospital, she tells The Doctors she is in debt from the massive hospital bills. Kris' dream of having the perfect butt was destroyed and her butt will never look as she had hoped. Kris' doctors told her that she can never get plastic surgery in that area again because it could get infected and possibly threaten her life.
