A British student who flew to America for illegal buttock-enhancement surgery has died from medical complications.
Police said Claudia Adusei, 20, checked into a budget Philadelphia hotel with three friends to have the procedure.
Almost 12 hours after receiving 'industrial silicone' injections of she complained of chest pains and was rushed to hospital where she later died.
The procedure, which can cost up to £2,000, involves substance usually used as a sealant.
Adusei was among a group of four British women from London who had flown to Philadelphia on February 5 for cosmetic surgery.
The Delaware County Medical examiner said a preliminary cause of death is the silicone injected into the woman's vascular system which ultimately led to a heart attack.
They have not released the name of the party who reserved the rooms at the Hampton Inn or who administered the silicone.
But the female 'surgeon' who performed the procedure is reported to have disappeared when the victim began feeling ill.
Police are now seeking two people involved in the cosmetic procedures which they believe were arranged over the internet.
