The manager of the Shenyang Meishen Cosmetic Surgery hospital in Shenyang, capital of Liaoning Province, called police Friday, reporting the death of the woman.

The woman, 36, surnamed Xu, underwent breast augmentation surgery about a month ago, but after the operation she found her breasts were not symmetrical and lumps had developed in them, her cousin Xu Jin was quoted saying.

Local police has blocked the hospital for further investigation over Xu's death. [Xinhua]
Xu went back to the hospital for a check-up Friday, but died of an as yet unknown cause.

According to the woman's relatives, a forensic pathologist had examined her body.

An employee of the hospital said the hospital and the surgeons were licensed to perform the plastic surgery.

Police have so far declined to comment.

A sign outside the hospital reads that it was approved in 1998 by the Shenyang city health department.
