D.C. Young Fly has spoken out following the sudden passing of his longtime girlfriend and children’s mother, Jacky Oh.
In a statement given to PEOPLE on Friday (June 2), the comedian and his family thanked supporters for their well wishes.
“We thank everyone for their well wishes and ask for privacy during this difficult time,” the statement read.
Jacky Oh (real name Jacklyn Smith) was reportedly in Miami getting what’s known as a “mommy makeover” when she passed away at the age of 32 on Wednesday (May 31).
The pair have three children — daughters Nova and Nala, and son Prince – and first met in 2015 when D.C. Young Fly was on Wild N’Out for the first time.
In recent years, “mommy makeovers” have become very popular amongst the celebrity crowd, with folks like Blac Chyna, Cardi B and Pepa of Salt-N-Pepa all confessing to the procedure after they’d given birth to their children.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that a “mommy makeover” often consists of a combination of several procedures, including a breast augmentation, lift, or reduction; a tummy tuck; a butt augmentation; liposuction; and an arm or a thigh lift.
“Mommy makeovers” are often done by mothers after their pregnancies to get the “snap back” look, but can also be done by post-menopausal women who put on weight due to hormone fluctuations.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons also claims that “mommy makeovers” are generally safe, provided that your body has time to recover from the procedure.
“A mommy makeover can radically change how your body looks, giving you more energy, vitality and self-esteem. It is also a surgical procedure that requires an investment of time for recovery. Patients with the happiest outcomes are the ones who plan accordingly,” it writes. “The best way to ensure a great result is to give your body the time and energy that it needs to heal properly.”
However, no plastic surgery — especially invasive ones — is without risk. While deaths like Jacky Oh’s are rare, Kanye West‘s beloved mother, Dr. Donda West, passed away after complications due to a cosmetic procedure back in 2007.
