Woman: Botched plastic surgery killed my mom
A Yonkers cosmetologist could soon be charged for performing the plastic surgery that allegedly killed a Bronx mother of two.
Fiordaliza Pichardo's daughter, Marines Rodriguez, says the deadly operation was performed by Elsa Then, an unlicensed cosmetologist.
Rodriguez says the surgery went horribly wrong, and Pichardo suffered dizziness and breathing problems. She died at Bronx Lebanon Hospital on March 18, killed by a blood clot doctors blame on the alleged botched surgery.
No charges have been filed against Then. Police continue to investigate.
