A graduate nurse was depicted on CCTV footage administering anaesthetic to a Sydney beauty clinic owner who died following a botched breast procedure, a court has been told.

Yueqiong Fu, 29, was refused bail in Burwood Local Court on Friday after becoming the second Chinese woman to be charged over the death of 35-year-old Jean Huang following the procedure on August 30 at the Medi Beauty Laser and Contour Clinic in inner Sydney.

Ms Huang suffered cardiac arrest during the procedure and was rushed to hospital in a critical condition but died two days later.

Fu’s barrister Neville Parsons said she had believed her co-accused, Jie Shao, was a qualified doctor and ‘she was trained to obey what doctors say’.

But magistrate Susan Horan, who concluded Fu had a strong incentive to flee the country, said police had CCTV footage showing Fu wearing a surgical mask and gloves, inserting a cannula into Ms Huang and administering anaesthetic, as well as going in and out of the treatment room.

It could not be said Fu was on the peripheral of the scene, she added.

Shau, who was on a tourist visa, has also been refused bail and another court previously heard she does not have an Australian medical licence.

Court documents allege Shao ‘injected Jean Huang with varying amounts of anaesthetic in the form of Tramadol and Lidocaine and the restricted substance Hyaluronic acid’ before injecting breast fillers.

Fu, who is on a student’s visa, was supported in court by her piano teacher husband and father-in-law.

Mr Parsons said Ms Huang asked Fu to help a qualified doctor carry out the procedure and she ‘simply followed the directions’ not knowing ‘she was not a qualified doctor’.

Fu had just graduated with a nursing degree from UTS, while she previously qualified as a nurse in China and worked in a hospital clinic there for three-and-a-half years.

In opposing bail, Sergeant Liam McKibbin referred to concerns she would flee, interfere with evidence and witnesses, and pose a danger to the community.

‘It is alleged she was engaging in unlicensed, highly dangerous medical procedures in an unqualified capacity,’ he said.

He also said she initially lied to police and only admitted being involved after being shown the CCTV footage.

Both women are due back in Central Local Court on October 31.

The 29-year-old – who was one of four people present during the botched surgery -will face Burwood Local Court on Friday.

Arrested on Thursday, Fu was charged her with manslaughter, using a poison to endanger life, and hindering an investigation into a serious indictable offence

Fu was allegedly working as a nurse at the medical clinic, despite not having any qualifications.

Her counterpart Shao, who also doesn’t have an Australian medical licence, was initially charged with causing reckless grievous bodily harm and using poison to endanger life.

But on Tuesday the Central Local Court heard she now faces an additional charge of manslaughter.

Court documents allege Shao ‘injected Jean Huang with varying amounts of anaesthetic in the form of Tramadol and Lidocaine and the restricted substance Hyaluronic acid.’

The court previously heard Shao was a graduate of a Canton medical university and a specialist in dermatology who had practised in China and Great Britain.

She had arrived in Australia four or five days before the alleged offences with two Chinese passports because her tourist visa – which expires in November – was attached to her old passport.

Shao will remain behind bars and is due to return to court on October 31.
