A woman jumped to her death earlier this week after getting a facelift from a renowned plastic surgeon to the stars.
The 53-year-old was on the roof of the Camden Medical Arts building in Beverly Hills for several hours Wednesday before she jumped.
The unidentified woman was reportedly a patient of Dr. Brian Novack, considered one of the best – and most expensive – doctors specializing in keeping Hollywood A-listers looking eternally young.
The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Novack’s tragic mystery patient had been staying overnight under supervision at his sleek clinic on North Camden Drive in Beverly Hills following a facelift procedure.
The outlet said blonde, Caucasian patient left Dr. Novack’s office, shed her hospital gown and ran up five stories to the roof.
A crisis negotiation team was dispatched to the scene and tried to talk the woman down for about three hours, but to no avail. ‘She sat on the ledge naked, then got up and walked around the edge of the building as if on a tightrope,’ a witness described the harrowing scene to the site. ‘She sat back down again before getting up and jumping off.’
