A woman who underwent a Brazilian butt lift procedure at a South Florida plastic surgery clinic ended up at a hospital where she later died.

The Miami-Dade Police Department said they received a call at around 11:13 a.m. Friday about a woman in distress at Mia Aesthetics on Southwest 72nd Street.

Family members of 28-year-old Danea Plasencia said the doctor was done with the procedure when the complications started.

"Then they moved her body to the stretcher, and all of a sudden, she became blue," said Marcio C. Ferez, her grandfather.

Plasencia was rushed to Baptist Hospital, where she died. Miami-Dade police are investigating her death.

She was a mother of three children, ages 9, 5 and 1. She just turned 28 six days before.

In a statement to NBC 6, Mia Aesthetics offered their condolences to Plasencia's family and said this was the only fatality they have had.

Plasencia's death is the latest out of at least 12 women who have died in recent years in South Florida either during or after undergoing a Brazilian butt lift surgery. The NBC 6 Investigators have been uncovering details of the deaths for more than three years. The investigations have led to two studies, including one that found out that you are 20 times more likely to die after a butt lift surgery than any other cosmetic procedure.

Earlier this month, the Florida House passed Senate Bill 732, which makes it easier for the state to discipline doctors and clinics where deaths happen. The new law will allow the Board of Medicine to immediately revoke a doctor's license in the case of injury or death, require all surgery centers to be owned by doctors and require a clean record for five years before a doctor can open a surgery center.
