The cause of the death for Jacky Oh, a cast member on MTV’s Wild ‘n Out who died in May, was released Friday.

The TV personality, who was born Jacklyn Marie Smith, died on May 31 from complications of cosmetic surgery, Page Six reported after obtaining a copy of the autopsy report from the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The manner of death was listed as an accident.

Smith had a “gluteal augmentation procedure” the day before her death, which included liposuction and having fat transferred to her buttocks, per the autopsy report.

Smith, 33, had traveled to Miami from Atlanta to undergo plastic surgery.

She was prescribed the antibiotic cliprofloxacin, the painkiller oxycodone and the anti-nausea medication ondansetron. She contacted the doctor’s office about a headache and was told to take ibuprofen instead of ondansetron.

Smith was in her hotel room on the night of May 31 when she felt her head “burning” and had “difficulty speaking,” the autopsy report said.

She was with a relative who contacted authorities for help. The TV personality was transported to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead at approximately 11:00 p.m.

She had swelling in her brain and excessive bleeding of the skin around her torso, according to the autopsy report.

Smith is survived by her partner and Wild ‘N Out co-star DC Young Fly, and their three children Nova, 6; Nala, 3; and Prince’Nehemiah, 14 months.

The model and influencer posted a picture of herself wearing a medical gown as she stood next to a doctor dressed in scrubs in a since-deleted Instagram post, just before undergoing surgery. Several websites made screengrabs of the post before it was deleted.

The physician in the photo, Dr. Zachary Okhah, is known in Miami as a “BBL specialist.” Okhah released a video statement in June saying, “My reputation in Miami for safety is exemplary. I am not willing to operate, without exception, on any patient if my preoperative protocols for medical clearance are not wholly met.”

In June, the Miami Police Department released the police report detailing what officers found the day Oh died.

The report obtained by Urban Hollywood 411 said first responders were called to the Homewood Suites by Hilton Miami Downtown/Brickell at 9:43 p.m. on May 31.

Police said Smith was unresponsive when first responders arrived. She was transported to Mercy Hospital but the medical staff was unable to revive her.

Following news of her death, a spokesperson for BET Media Group posted a statement on the Wild ‘N Out Instagram page.

“We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jacklyn Smith, known to the world as Jacky Oh, a talented Wild N’ Out family member whose impact will be forever treasured and missed,” the statement read.

“Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild N’ Out cast throughout five seasons,” the post continued. “More importantly, she was a tremendous mother to three beautiful children. The BET Media Group extends our sincere condolences to the Smith family, DC Young Fly, B Simone, Nick Cannon, and all friends who loved and cared for Jacky Oh during this difficult time.”
