Death Of Young TV Star During Face Grinding Plastic
Surgery Highlights Risks
24 year old Wang Bei was rising to the top
of the world, beautiful, a highly successful contestant in the
enormously popular talent show “Super Girl”. Last week after Wang Bei
died during plastic surgery to grind back her jaw.
