Report: Anna Had Recent Surgery

2/11/2007 12:30 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Anna Nicole Smith with Danielynn tattooMSNBC's Rita Cosby reports that Anna Nicole may have had recent breast surgery to repair one of her implants.

Cosby also reports the former Playmate had also been prescribed over 10 different types of pain medication, and may have been taking excessive amounts because she developed a tolerance to the effects.

In addition, Cosby's sources tell her that Anna Nicole was found by a member of her staff -- unresponsive and nude in her bed, with a sheet pulled over her face.

Death from cosmetic plastic surgeries occurs in one out of 57,000 cases, per the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Two million plastic surgeries were performed in the United States in 2005.

Adverse reactions to surgery could become serious; there are numerous documented cases of seizures, heart attacks and high fevers leading to death. Recent published research shows that inflammation caused by common respiratory and urinary tract infections like bronchitis, pneumonia and cystitis, may contribute to in increased risk of heart attack and stroke, and the greatest risk is in the earliest stages of infection.

If Anna did have a recent cosmetic procedure, and she exhibited "flu like symptoms" over the last few days, it's quite possible that the star died of a massive infection, perhaps complicated by an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

It is very unlikely that Anna died of a periopertaive infection. These infections are usually easy to see coming and do not result in an acute and sudden decompensation as was seen in her case (obviously there are exceptions to this rule but we are speaking about what is most likely(. In medicine, there is a saying: "common things happen commonly". While it seems like a simple, if not stupid, observiation it is one that many healthcare professionals often forget in their zeal to find sometrhing interesting and/or unique.
In this case, a young woman with a history of polysubstance abuse and prior problems with near overdosing dies suddenly in a hotle room with a drug-filled fridge. Sure, many things could have happened, but what is most likely is probably thge answer: Methadone, alcohol, and IV meds in a fridge? Sounds like overdose to us.

The medical examiner said there was no sign of RECENT plastic surgery, I would tend to belive him more then Rita Cosby.
Really, Howard won't have to take a DNA test because he is on the birth certificate. The others will If they want to prove they are the father. So unless the real father, who ever that might be, dosn't ask for one, he is scott free.

I have said from the begginning. I think howard stern her lawyer had something to do with her sons death and I think now" Annas death", he seemed more concerned over the media or whom might implicate him with the death of daniel. I think he was the one to administer her drugs and now knowing morphine was in her fridge I am sure of it.. ANNA could not have gotten these drugs herself..she was too out of it.. its very sad because she was just a mixed up girl. I believe if she had not been around the life sucking people that she was she would have abetter chance at living a healthy life style.lets just hope if Stern is Guilty, he stays as stupid as he seems to be. cause then he will be caught! and I think that prescious baby is the other young mans. Stern just wants her money now.. he may not be as stupid as I think!

My opinion..Like the rest of us, Anna Nicole knew the results of the autopsy of her son..Daniel..but yet she continued the same life style (drugs and Alcohol) with the help of her loser friend (howard)..With all her money she could have received the best professional care to overcome her addictions..and become a role model for her daughter...but she chose to go the other direction..fighting the DNA test..(which is the best interest of the child)..living a wild life with the (creep) Howard..even going as far searching for someone to sign the birth certificate as DannieLynn's father....Her first approached was to ask the man who owns the home in Bahama's (as he had a brief affair with her prior to provide the home) for her in the Bahama's..He refused as he said he had a vasectomy and doubt he was the father..She used sex to get her way through life...Having DannieLynn should have been an eye opening event...not her, she continued to lie and manipulate the world to be her way and her way only...

I only pray her child will be given to Larry Birkhead (the real father) and the games are over...

I have a question and a comment: Where is Daniels natural father? I noticed he didn't come forward after Daniels death. I know if you stop using methadone suddenly, your body will go into shock and you can die. if anyone knows the answer to my question, it would be appreciated. I believe that Howard is responsible for both of their deaths. wake up CSI and get this man!!!!!

Maybe Dr. Perper didn't say she had cosmetic surgery because all she had was injections of things into her lips and such and perhaps that is not considered SURGERY?

ABOUT ANNA'S MOTHER, let me say that nobody seems to realize that the cow had her fat ass on TV less than 24 hrs after finding out her daughter died! Estranged or not, I think I was feeling more grief than that cow money chasing inbread loser was.

After the autopsy, he was asked if there was any recent, incisions? and he stated that there was nothing that was recent. So I feel that rule out this topic.
