Cosmetic Surgery Kills Vivek Shauq

Vivek Shauq, the famous character actor and comedian died following a heart attack after liposuction operation. He was 47. Vivek Shauq became famous in popular media for his role as Jaspal Bhatti’s brother-in-law in Flop Show. He then worked in Hindi films and Punjabi films. Among some of his well-known Hindi films, Gadar-Ek PremKatha, Aitraaz, 36 China Town, Hum Ko Deewana Kar Gaye, Asa Nu Maan Watna Da, Dil Hai Tumara, Mini Punjab and Nalaik deserve a special mention.

After undergoing a liposuction operation in Thane, Shauq's condition turned critical. He suffered a heart attack on January 3 and was admitted to Jupiter Hospital in Thane. He was on life support but slipped into a coma and could not be revived. On Monday, the 10th of January, 2011 Shauq died from septicemia.

The doctor at Jupiter Hospital where he was undergoing surgery said that liposuction triggered his heart attack. According to his information, in 2003, Vivek had undergone a major angioplasty operation and three stents were put in his heart. He was prescribed blood thinning medicines Aspirin and Clopidogrel. But he stopped taking them before his liposuction.
Shauq was brought to Jupiter hospital on January 3 after he suffered three cardiac arrests. "His heart had already stopped functioning. Three emergency three shocks had also been given to him. He was on life support system but he went into coma," said Dr. Dayanand Kumbla, another cardiologist there.

As per liposuction surgery rules, prior to the surgery, a complete health history check-up is done. Knowledge of one's allergies, medications and previous surgeries must be brought to the surgeon's notice at this stage.

Shauq underwent a liposuction at the Karkhanis Nursing Home in Thane. When contacted, Dr. Sameer Karkhanis, the plastic surgeon who performed the surgery, said, "Vivek did not reveal anything about his angioplasty and blood thinning medicines prior to the surgery. The ECG and 2D Eco reports showed normal.

Vivek’s close frends in Bollywood were shocked. Bobby Deol said, "I have lost a friend. He was a gem of a person," Akshay Kumar, who was one of Shauq's closest friends, tweeted, "This is a message, actually it's more of a request, for all those who have had the pleasure of knowing and watching Vivek Shauq.
