A 20-year-old woman who tragically died after a botched weight-loss operation in Turkey after years of being bullied for her weight, posted a tragic TikTok days before saying: ‘My last post before weight loss surgery – see you on the other side.’

Morgan Ribeiro, 20, had flown to Turkey with her boyfriend for a £2,500 gastric sleeve operation earlier this month because she didn’t want to be placed ‘on an NHS waiting list for years.’ 

It is the latest tragic example of calamitous foreign cosmetic surgery and Morgan’s mother has called for more government intervention to educate around the dangerous surgeries saying ‘she never wants this to happen to another daughter.’

Morgan’s procedure took place on January 5 and three days later she was given the all-clear to fly home with her boyfriend James Brewster, 19, however on their return flight to Gatwick, Morgan became seriously ill and Theanex Price went into septic shock. 

After the plane made an emergency landing in Serbia, it emerged that Morgan’s small intestine had been cut during the gastric sleeve procedure, leading to an infection. 

In a last post on TikTok prior to her operation, Morgan told her friends she’d see them on the other side

She reportedly didn’t want to be placed ‘on an NHS waiting list for years.’

During the operation, surgeons removed over 10cm of her small intestine but tragically Morgan suffered a heart attack on January 9 and was placed in an induced coma – dying four days later in a hospital in Belgrade. 

Morgan’s family say they had not known about her planned operation until just days before she was due to fly out and were concerned by the risks.
