Cosmetic procedure fatality in Framingham


Framingham police said early this morning that the Middlesex District Attorney's Office is investigating the death yesterday of a 23-year-old woman after a cosmetic procedure done by a Brazilian man in the basement of a Framingham home.

Authorities would not release details on the death of Fabiola de Paula, a native of Brazil who was living in Framingham.

The surgery took place in a home in the Bishop Gardens condominium community, said a woman who lived in the home and asked not to be identified. She said the surgeon showed doctors at MetroWest Medical Center a license from Brazil to practice plastic surgery.

It was not clear last night if the surgeon, identified by the woman as Luis Carlos Ribeiro, was licensed to practice medicine in Massachusetts.
