Doctors have operated to remove the breasts of high-profile banking fraud suspect Inong Malinda Dee after finding a benign tumor.
“It turns out that doctors discovered a benign tumor in Malinda Dee’s breasts,” Vivi Buntaran, Malinda’s friend, told Detik.com on Wednesday.
Vivi said that Malinda was in a better condition than before she was operated on, with the medical waiting for her wounds to heal.
“Her condition is good, but she cannot leave the hospital just yet,” Vivi said.
Vivi was yet to visit Malinda in hospital and had only been communicating with her friend by phone.
Doctors were forced to remove Malinda’s breasts because liquid silicon, injected to enlarge her breasts, had fused with the breast glands, making it impossible to separate the two.
Malinda underwent six-hour surgery at Siloam Hospital to remove her breasts. She will remain in hospital for two more weeks while she recovers.
