In 2017, around 1,5 million Americans went outside the USA for medical reasons. The thing is that medical procedures performed in Mexico can cost approximately 40-65% less than in the USA. 

That's why many girls and women set off to this country to get plastic surgery, where they end up in hands of amateurs. And this is exactly what happened with Laura Avila.

In October 2018, the 36-year-old woman set off to get a nose job in Mexican city, Ciudad Juarez.

Sadly, due to a mistake of the local anesthesiologist, Laura had a cardiac arrest and she developed a brain tumor.

Here's what victim's sister, Angie Avila, tells about the incident:

She suffered cardiac arrest for four minutes. She was then placed into a medically-induced coma to prevent further damage to her brain that was caused by the complications she experienced during anesthesia.

Only 4 days later the patient's family was able to move her to an American clinic. Mexican doctors refused to give away Avila's medical records until all the services had been paid.

American doctors informed the relatives that irreparable damage has been done to the patient's brain, so "she will never be the same again."

They have suggested switching off life support as even if Avila wakes up, she will never be able to live a full life.

Fortunately, they were proved wrong!

The victim's family started a fundraising campaign for Laura's further treatment on GoFundMe and have recently told good news to all the sympathizers.

This story shows that you should never try to save money on your health. If you've resolved to introduce dramatic changes to your appearance, get it done only by professionals in clinics!

Please, share Laura's story with your friends to stop them from making the same mistake!
