Michelle Williams Wiki – Michelle Williams Biography
Michelle Williams suffered cardiac arrest during rhinoplasty surgery. The British woman from London who has spent nearly three months fighting for her life in a Turkish hospital after an operation went wrong is finally being flown back home, her family have said.
She was placed in intensive care after suffering a cardiac arrest during surgery on 14 August. Her relatives had been desperate to repatriate her so they could oversee her care.
She is 46 years old.

Michelle Williams may never fully recover from the operation and has now spent more than 12 weeks in intensive care at a private hospital abroad following a rhinoplasty procedure.
She is on a repatriation flight home and will be taken to hospital when she arrives on Thursday evening.
Her family are suing for medical negligence and have been locked in a battle with the hospital after it initially refused to allow Ms Williams to leave unless they paid a £20,000 medical bill.
Williams moved to Turkey to work as a teacher two years ago on a short-term contract after securing what her family have described as her “dream job”. After a spell back in England, she decided to make Turkey her permanent home and returned there to teach in 2019.
Her sister, Nikisha Lynch, told the PA news agency: “She is still critical. We really don’t know how much damage has been done.
“We speak to her every day, we pray, we sing, we play music, but there’s no communication.
“The hospital didn’t want to let her leave unless we paid the bill, but we came to an understanding so she could.”
Ms Williams, a teacher originally from London, had been working in her “dream” job – teaching English in Turkey – when she opted to have elective surgery in August at the Academic Hospital in Istanbul.
However, shortly after the general anaesthetic was administered she suffered a cardiac arrest, followed by prolonged seizures for three hours, on and off.
The family’s lawyer, Burcu Holmgren, of London Legal International, told the PA news agency: “I am pleased we were able to get Michelle discharged from hospital without further financial burden to her family.”
Holmgren said she was representing a number of patients whose procedures did not go as planned in Turkey and urged people to do their research or get their treatment in their home countries.
