A friend of the dead woman said he had urged Shabasova not to undergo the buttocks procedure, he said: “The beautician who was supposed to perform the operation, only recently received a certificate.
She completed a two-week course and became a cosmetologist. Prior to that, she was doing lash extensions.”
The friend said, “Mika Shabasova went to her, because Uma is her friend, purely because of trust. Three days before the surgery she had a fever and she was off work.
“She lived with three girls in an apartment – they all tried to persuade her not to go to this beautician.”
He said that the woman “secretly, when everyone was at home, simply left the house, rang a taxi and went for this surgery.
“She had previously had lips, nose, and chin procedures. These were with different anaesthetics. But within 15 minutes she was gone. Police questioned her friends,” he said.
She told state investigators in Makhachkala that she had repeatedly anaesthetised the skin of the victim with lidocaine, a local anaesthetic.
The Russian Investigative Committee said, “A 22-year-old resident of Makhachkala, while visiting her friend, who performs cosmetic procedures at home, died on the spot after the administration of an anaesthetic.”
