(Coconuts Media) - A 2000s-era Thai pop star is back in the spotlight after this weekend speaking publicly about her “near death story” following a breast augmentation surgery in South Korea that went terribly wrong.
In viral Facebook posts made on Friday, Jeeranan “May” Kitprasarn, a singer formerly signed with record label RS, said she decided to go under the knife — for the first time in her life — in late December to get breast implants. The surgery, she says, ended up putting her in a coma where she had a “10 percent chance of survival.”
Jeeranan said that, in an attempt to improve her posture (*ahem*) and confidence, she paid a whopping THB800,000 (US$24,000) to have the surgery at Grand Plastic Surgery hospital in Seoul, which she said had many positive reviews.
But soon after the operation, Jeeranan said her breasts had caused irregular bleeding and burning sensations, something she claims her doctor and nurses said was perfectly normal.
