Update: Social media influencer Ms Jacky Oh, the mother of comedian DC Young Fly’s three children, died from surgery complications on Wednesday in Miami. She was 32.
According to TMZ, the former Wild ‘N’ Out star, real name Jacklyn Smith, traveled to Miami for a “mommy makeover” session by Dr. Zach Okhah.
Dr. Zach is a popular plastic surgeon who markets his elective surgery services on social media.
There is a rumor that Smith was offered “free” mommy makeover sessions by Dr. Zach in return for mentioning his services on her social media pages.
Dr. Zach calls himself a “BBL specialist” on his Instagram page.
After the news of Smith’s tragic death, Dr. Zach scrubbed his Instagram page of all posts dating back to February 2023. Then, late Wednesday, he scrubbed more posts off his page dating back to January 2023 and turned off his comments.
There is a report that Dr. Zach is not “board certified,” he is only “board eligible” to practice as a plastic surgeon in his specialty.
According to Chris Johnson MD, “board eligible” means a doctor who has completed his residency in a chosen specialty but has not yet passed or taken the test to be certified in that specialty.
Dr. Johnson said a doctor can practice for years without ever passing the test. No board certification restricts doctors from working in a hospital, but there is nothing to stop them from practicing their specialty outside of a hospital setting.
The American Board of Medical Specialties gives doctors several years to obtain certification in their specialty or they must stop using the designation “board eligible.”
According to the medical board, Dr. Zach received his medical degree from The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University in 2013 and has been practicing for 10 years.
Dr. Zach has a dismal 1.6 rating (out of 5 stars) on Healthgrades.com. His 1-star reviews far outnumber his 5-star reviews by 86% to 14%.
In a 1-star review posted in March 2023, one patient wrote:
“I wish I would have seen this page before getting my procedure. I went to Dr. Zach in April 2022 for lipo 360… Like one review previously posted, there was no post-op, which was promised. I only seen and talked him for a few minutes right before my appointment.”
Another patient said her liposuction procedure was “rushed” and she “developed a lot of hardness and lumps, PAYING additional fees to get rid of.”
Smith was best known for her appearances on Nick Cannon’s “Wild ‘N Out” show alongside her husband DC Young Fly, real name John Whitfield, 31.
The “Wild ‘N Out” social media page posted a message paying tribute to Smith:
“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. Jacky Oh was a loving friend and beloved colleague of the Wild ‘N Out cast throughout five seasons.”
Smith was a realtor and launched her own lip gloss line called the J Nova Collection. She cherished her role as mommy to her 3 beautiful children.
In a Mother’s Day post, she wrote:
