Dad of tragic Leah Cambridge who died after Brazilian bum lift operation is found dead as fiance says 'take care of her'

THE family of a mum who died after a botched Brazilian butt lift have been hit by fresh agony after her dad was found dead at home.

Mum-of-three Leah Cambridge, 29, flew to a clinic in Turkey in August 2018 for the operation after saving £6,500 for the procedure.

But she had three heart attacks on the operating table and died of a fat embolism.

Her dad Craig Cambridge, of Leeds, West Yorks., was found dead by his other daughter on Easter Monday.

He regularly posted about the loss of Leah on his Facebook page.


Leah’s widower Scott Franks wrote today: "Rest in peace Craig Cambridge, one top bloke.

"I’ll never forget all the times you was there for me. We all love you so much, take care of Leah now mate."

A relative told The Sun: "Craig never got over the death of Leah.

"He has been struggling with her loss.

We are devastated, but at least now he is together with his Leah again."

"We are devastated, but at least now he is together with his Leah again."

The relative added: "He was found by his daughter. It’s just more heartbreak for the family."

Craig's niece Lisa Cambridge added: "Just can't believe it. Absolutely heartbroken."

In January Craig posted a picture on Facebook with the words: "I miss me. The old me. The happy me.

"The smiling me. The laughing me. The gone me."

Beautician Leah flew to the Elite Aftercare clinic in Izmir for the Brazilian butt lift, made famous by US reality TV star Kim Kardashian.

The clinic claimed to have done plastic surgery for Towie stars Lauren Goodger and Amber Dowding and Geordie Shore's Chloe Ferry.


Lauren posted online about the clinic saying: "Hi guys I've just arrived at Elite Aftercare and I'm very excited to let you know what I'm having done soon – so keep watching."

The controversial butt-lift procedure involves taking fat from the waist or stomach and inserting it in the buttocks.

It is popular with women who want a more pert bottom or an hour-glass figure.

Surgeons at Elite Aftercare say it is safer than other bottom-boosting procedures because it involves using the body's own fat rather than silicon implants.

But complications set in soon after they began the procedure on Leah.


EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

Her condition worsened and doctors and nurses could not save the mum of three boys.

Speaking at the time Scott said: "I just wish this was a bad dream.

"Two days ago I was happy. Now I'm a broken man and will be forever.

"I'm hurt so bad and this is only the start. My life has crashed."

Elite Aftercare insisted in a statement it is “responsibly run”. It added: “As such, it takes its responsibilities extremely seriously.”

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "At 7.34pm on Monday, police were called to an address in Halton where a man had been found dead.

"There were no suspicious circumstances and the Coroner's Office has been informed."
