May 30, 2002|From Times Staff Reports

A Newport Beach plastic surgeon is being investigated by the Osteopathic Medical Board of California after the death of a patient, authorities said Wednesday.

Maryellen Fleury, 44, of Santa Ana died at her home Monday, three days after undergoing liposuction and breast augmentation procedures by Amy Bandy, a certified plastic surgeon who also has an office in Lawndale.

Fleury died of bilateral pulmonary embolism--blood clots in the lungs--said Deputy Orange County Coroner Cullen Ellensburg.

The osteopathic board has launched an investigation to determine whether there was any negligence.

Bandy did not return calls seeking comment.
