Donda's Surgeon -- I'm the Victim of "Sleaze"

11/13/2007 1:18 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Plastic surgeon Dr. Jan Adams has told TMZ that he was the doctor who performed cosmetic surgery on Kanye West's mother Donda before she died.

Dr. Adams told TMZ her death, which followed a tummy tuck and breast reduction, was unforeseen and could have been caused by a heart attack, pulmonary embolism, or massive vomiting.

Dr. Adams tells us West consulted with him over a period of four months. He says she changed her mind numerous times, sometimes greenlighting the surgery and sometimes halting it.

As for the TMZ report that Beverly Hills doctor Andre Aboolian refused to conduct the surgery because of a medical condition that West had, Dr. Adams said of Dr. Aboolian, "He is sleazy and manipulating the truth to elevate his own importance."

Dr. Adams says he did nothing wrong.

Maybe her untimely death will wake up America and remind them of the risks in ANY surgery.

this couldve happened to anyone. It has happened to anyone...they just dont have the benefit of having it printed on the front of tabloids. every surgery no matter how minor or major comes with possible negative consequences. it's a very sad thing. In San Francisco we just lost a beloved newscaster Pete Wilson due to unforeseen complications in a surgery..........whether it's cosmetic or health related, these things are possible.

PLEASE DO YOUR RESEARCH BEFORE YOU GO UNDER THE KNIFE...SOME PLASTIC SURGEONS ARE DENTIST OR EVEN WORSE NOT EVEN REAL PLASTIC SURGEONS. GO TO A GYM, TAKE YOUR VITAMINS AND STOP STRESSING OUT FOR A HAPPIER , HEALTHIER LONG LASTING LIFE.

This is really sad. Such a senseless death for such a young woman. This whole mess is likely to go on for quite a long time. We'll probably never know the truth either. My heart goes out to Kanye and his family. I hope this turns out to be one of those horrible tragedies and not some kind of malpractice.

just wondering    

...IF she had any kind of heart disease and most do by the time they reach her age ..ten a surgery that would cause alot of bleeding would be extremly high risk just due to the clotting of blood....cardiac arrest would most likley be the cause due to blood clots....or pulmonary embolism in her lungs....bottomline...the bleeding causes clots, and they can hit u in the head ( stroke) heart ( Mi's-myocardia infarctions aka heart attack) or lungs ( embolism)...one of those got her in the end...sad for all...again speculation on my part...

#12 Your comment is evil and senseless. If it was your mother you would want everyone to respect her memory.

you would think Kanye's mom would have done her research. All you have to do is read the message board @ www.ienhance.com.

Kanye West is a public figure so he has limited right to privacy when death like this tragedy occurs near him.

Perhaps now you people will stop and think how you could contribute to the death of person by making fun of, and insulting, other people who are adjusting to aging.
