A Nigerian-British woman named Joy Williams (pictured above) has died in Thailand after undergoing a cheap plastic surgery to increase the size of her buttocks, Dailymail reports.
The doctor who carried out the latest surgery, Sompob Sansiri, has been charged with causing her death by negligence. He is accused of carrying out night-time surgery without a license.
Miss Williams had travelled to Bangkok, the Thai capital, earlier this month for the £2,000 buttock augmentation operation. It involves inserting silicone implants into a patient's buttocks.

Police Colonel Chayut Marayard, the officer leading the investigation, said she underwent the operation on October 14, but her wounds became infected.
She was in severe pain and returned to the clinic on Thursday to have the implants removed but died shortly after the second operation.
While in Bangkok, Miss Williams stayed at an £11 per-night Vabua Asotel hotel, which was used by the clinic as accommodation for its patients.
The 24 year-old Joy, from Thamesmead, London was born in Nigeria. Her family were too upset to comment yesterday but friends described her as a "bright, caring girl".
One of her friends said…
“She was a very bright girl and did well at school. She was a bit shy and quiet and I knew in later years there was something wrong and upsetting her.
“At school she had been bullied over her appearance and she went for surgery on her nose and face. Last time I saw her it was obvious she had had cosmetic surgery. She was fine before, she didn’t need to. She was fine the way she was but she just wasn’t happy. She had no self esteem and I guess she felt she needed to do it. She was just never happy with herself.”
What a waste!
