The Florida doctor who performed plastic surgery on Wild ‘N Out star Jacky Oh before she died won’t face criminal charges, police said Monday.

The Miami Police Department told TMZ because the medical examiner determined the death was accidental, homicide detectives will not launch a criminal investigation.

The autopsy report released last week said Jacky Oh, who was born Jacklyn Marie Smith, died on May 31 from complications of cosmetic surgery.

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.

She traveled to Miami to undergo the procedure, popularly known as BBL surgery, and was in her hotel room on the night of May 31 when she felt her head “burning” and had “difficulty speaking.” The coroner’s office said she had swelling in her brain and excessive bleeding of the skin around her torso when she died.

According to the police report released in June, officers responded to a call for “an unresponsive female” in a hotel room at 9:43 p.m. on May 31.

Smith was transported to Mercy Hospital, but the medical staff was unable to resuscitate her and the attending physician pronounced her dead at approximately 11:00 p.m. According to the police report, she was 33 years old.

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.

After her death, Dr. Zachary Okhah released a video statement on Instagram, saying his clinic is safe.

“As many of you know first hand, my reputation in Miami for safety is exemplary,” Okhah shared.

The surgeon added that all patients must first get medical clearance from another physician, of their own choosing, before undergoing any surgical procedure at his practice.

“I am not willing to operate, without exception, on any patient if my preoperative protocols for medical clearance are not wholly met,” he said.
