Texas Woman Laura Avila Dies After Botched Nose Job in Mexico

Laura Avila, the Dallas real estate agent whose rhinoplasty in Mexico went wrong, has reportedly died. She was 35. Avila, who opted for a procedure in Ciudad Juarez to save money, fell into a coma after surgeons there botched their administration of anesthesia, TMZ reports. It took eight days for Avila’s family to successfully bring her back to Texas, where they ultimately placed her in hospice. Avila’s death comes several weeks after the procedure. Larry Friedman, who represented Avila, told TMZ, “She had the best of life in front of her until this tragic, unfortunate and senseless death. So that her death is not in vain, people should think of Laura before they look for cross-border discount surgery. They should do their homework and investigate the experience, training and track record of anyone BEFORE they sign up.”
