Brixton woman, 41, went to sleep and never woke up day after liposuction surgery – My London


A woman was found unresponsive in her bed just a day after undergoing liposuction surgery, an inquest heard.

Yacsheeka Kalecha Vaughns, 41, was pronounced dead inside her home in Tulse Hill, just south of Brixton, on December 13, 2020.

Having previously given no indications that she was feeling unwell following the procedure, police had to force entry to her home and found her unresponsive and cold to touch following a welfare concern report.

An inquest into her death was opened by Assistant Coroner Dr Julian Morris at London Inner South Coroners Court on Thursday (May 13).

It heard how Yacsheeka had been on blood pressure treatment at the time, but her death had been unnatural and not expected.

The inquest was told: She had undergone a microscopic surgery on December 12 of liposuction. She returned home and there was no indication she felt unwell. The next morning, she was found unresponsive and cold to touch.

Officers from Metropolitan Police and London Ambulance Service paramedics were called and life was pronounced extinct. The death was non-suspicious. Death was not expected. She had been on blood pressure treatment by her practitioner.

A post mortem examination was carried out and, following a consultation between a pathologist and toxicologist, a medical cause of death was given of 1A lignocaine toxicity.

Lignocaine, often referred to as Lidocaine, is a local anaesthetic used to numb an area of the body.

Due to the nature of the death and its proximity to the procedure, Assistant Coroner Dr Morris decided to proceed with an inquest on a date to be set.

The location at which the surgery took place was not given during the hearing.
