Dr. Zach breaks silence, snubs Jacky Oh’s death on table
Last Modified: Oct 31, 2023
Plastic surgeon Dr. Zachary Okhah, also known as Dr. Zach, broke his silence more than two weeks after the death of his patient Jacky Oh at the age of 33. And as viewers predominantly noticed – he failed to mention her or the fatal case.
Via an Instagram post, in which the comment section has been disabled, Okhah wrote, “To all my past, current and prospective patients, PH-1 Miami remains devoted to the highest quality medical care.”
The owner and founder of PH-1 Miami Clinic continued, “All aesthetic procedures are performed in a hygienically safe environment to universally recognized medical standards.”
Okhah, who has sued multiple former patients for wiring that he botched their surgeries in online reviews, continued with his statement, “I am relentlessly committed to advancing techniques in the realm of plastic surgery. Most importantly, my staff and I ensure that each patient is vetted, prepped, and treated according to their individual patient history prior to any surgery.”
He also explained his “mission to help [his] patients” to achieve the best possible results in the “safest and most medically appropriate way possible.”
Following the post, social media users criticized his actions – deleting evidence of Jacky Oh from his social media, failing to acknowledge her passing while some wished he had “stayed tf quiet.”
In a since-deleted Instagram post, Jacky Oh was wearing a disposable medical gown and posing alongside Okhah, who was in scrubs. The picture was allegedly taken before her fatal surgery.
“Getting ready for my mommy makeover with Dr. Zach!! Stay tuned to my YouTube for the full reveal!” the caption read alongside the since-deleted post.
The official cause of death of Oh, born Jacklyn Smith, is yet to be revealed. She had reportedly traveled to Miami for a “mommy makeover” before her tragic death.
After a week of waiting, her longtime comedian partner D.C. Young Fly, 31, honored Oh online because he “wanted it to be a dream so bad.”
He was filming new episodes of the Nick Cannon-created improv show when the terrible news reached him.
They had been together since 2015 after meeting on the set of Wild ‘N Out.
She is survived by her partner D.C. Young Fly and their three children - daughters Nova and Nala as well as son Prince, who was born in 2022.
