An autopsy report from the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner revealed on Oct. 2 that Jacky Oh, the former star of the VH1 series “Wild ‘N Out,” died of “complications from a cosmetic surgery,” according to reports.
Oh, whose birth name is Jacklyn Smith, died on May 31 at HCA Florida Mercy Hospital a day after she traveled to Florida from Georgia to undergo a “gluteal augmentation procedure,” the report stated.
The procedure is commonly referred to as a butt lift.
The medical examiner ruled her death as an accident. As a result, the cosmetic surgeon – Dr. Zachary Okhah, who performed the procedure – won’t face criminal charges.
The Miami Police Department confirmed on Oct. 3 that a criminal investigation will not be pursued, New York Daily News reported.
The surgery took place May 30, where she “underwent the procedure without any complications” and was prescribed ciprofloxacin, oxycodone and ondansetron — an antibiotic, a painkiller and an anti-nausea medication, after the surgery, respectively, NBC News reported.
Oh began to develop a post-surgery headache following her appointment, in which a nurse had advised her to discontinue ondansetron and take an Ibuprofen as needed.
On the night of May 31, she “began to feel like her head was burning” and “began to have difficulty speaking,” USA Today reported.
Her aunt, who traveled with her and took care of her post-operation, contacted emergency services. She was transported to Mercy Hospital unresponsive and was later pronounced dead at the age of 33, both outlets reported.
A day before her death, Okhah posted a since-deleted picture with the star about her upcoming surgery, TMZ reported.
He later broke his silence regarding her death on June 16, sharing on Instagram that he is “relentlessly committed to advancing techniques in the realm of plastic surgery” and that all of his patients are “vetted, prepped and treated according to their individual patient history” before undergoing any operations.
Oh, whose death made headlines, was the longtime partner of comedian, rapper, and actor DC Young Fly. The couple shared three young children together – Nova, Nala and Prince.
