Donda West -- Big Trouble on the Table?

11/13/2007 12:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Sources tell TMZ Donda West's operation lasted eight hours -- twice as long as it should have. We're told Dr. Jan Adams began the operation Friday morning and finished Friday evening. He then sent Ms. West home, rather than to a recovery center, which we're told, would have been appropriate.

Several doctors at Centinela Hospital where West was taken, tell TMZ they believe the excessive amount of time it took to perform the procedure strongly suggests either something went wrong during the operation or the doctor was just too inexperienced.

We're told she was dead the next evening at her home before paramedics arrived.

What's more, Dr. Adams is not Board Certified with the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Someone already said it, but how in the world could he be on TV shw hosting plastic surgery stories and it not come out that he isn't board certfied? How did he have a practice in Beverly Hills without being certified?

This is so sad and all the nasty comments are uncalled for. Maybe something good will come out of all of this. Plastic surgery is serious business and anyone considering it needs to be aware that it is surgery and with any kind of surgery there is always danger. It is sad that this woman chose to go to another plastic surgeon after her other surgeon refused to operate. I hope her son comes through this and pray for him. Getting nasty is childish...but try to have some heart.

This is where vanity gets you. Bottom line - the woman was vain. She was told not to get the procedure due to previous issues she had health wise. Unwilling to accept that answer, she went to a back alley doctor, not certified, and died. What women will not do to try to beautify themselves.

It is a very sad story, but I wonder why she chose someone to cut on her body who was not top-notch? I know she could afford it, and she was not stupid, if she worked for a time in college level academics. Never go the cheap when it's your one and only life.

My friend is board certified with three different medical boards, including the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and he once told me that this guy wasn't certified. He also said that this guy is fairly new and inexperienced, and a lot of plastic surgeons aren't even certified at all because all you need is a medical degree. It's really sad that this happened to her, and it just shows that you really need to do your research before letting someone perform surgery on you.

I dont know where T.M.Z is getting its medical info, but that amount of time doesnt mean anything went wrong. I had a breast reduction surgery and it took 6 hours, and nothing went wrong. I also stayed overnite at a hospital, but then again my guy was board certified. To say this woman should have been sent home, and not stayed overnight is ludacrous. If she would of had just a tummy-tuck maybe okay, but having two surgeries like that no-way!!
