The Pathum Thani provincial health office ordered a beauty clinic in Thanyaburi district closed for 30 days today (Friday), after a 25-year-old customer died as she was undergoing a rhinoplasty procedure yesterday.

The health office said that the clinic has a license, but it had not sought permission for an expansion to provide plastic surgery services.

It also said that the doctor, who performed the nose surgery on the customer, and the anaesthetist have professional licenses, but neither of them had registered as doctors at the clinic.

An employee at the clinic said that, while the customer was being anaesthetised, her body temperature increased unusually and then her heart stopped. An ambulance was called immediately and medics performed CPR, but they were unable to save her.

The woman’s body has been taken to Thammasat University Hospital for an autopsy.
