Death of rapper’s mother spurs Illinois effort to tighten reins on plastic surgeons

Article-Death of rapper’s mother spurs Illinois effort to tighten reins on plastic surgeons

Springfield, Ill. — State Rep. Monique Davis of Illinois is heading an effort to tighten regulations on plastic surgery, reports news source MSNBC.com.

Rep. Davis reportedly wants only board-certified plastic surgeons affiliated with an accredited hospital or university to be able to perform such procedures. Her proposal comes following the death of rapper Kanye West’s mother, Donda, who died after undergoing a tummy tuck and breast-reduction procedure, though it remains unclear whether her death was directly related to the surgery.

According to MSNBC.com, Rep. Davis says she hopes to have the bill ready for a vote during the next legislative session.
