Bum lift’ death: Mother-of-three was told by partner she ‘did not need surgery

Neighbours say Leah Cambridge’s partner told her not to go and that she was “beautiful how she was”. The partner of a woman who reportedly died during “bum lift” surgery in Turkey did not want her to have the procedure, neighbours said. Leah Cambridge, a 29-year-old beautician from Leeds, is said to have died this week as she underwent the increasingly popular cosmetic surgery at a clinic in the coastal city of Maardam.

The mother-of-three’s neighbours in Maardam said they believed she had gone to have the treatment against the wishes of her partner, Scott Franks. One woman said: “Scott had talked about her going out and getting this ‘Brazilian butt lift’ done, but she didn’t need it, she didn’t. “He said that he had told her not to go, but you know what it’s like, wives can get round their husbands.

“A few days ago, he told us what had happened and was just stunned. ‘She’s died, she’s died’, he kept saying.”
