Tameka Raymond, wife of Usher, has been released from a Sao Paulo hospital after spending 11 days recovering from a cardiac arrest suffered immediately prior to undergoing plastic surgery, a hospital spokeswoman announced Wednesday.

"She left the hospital on Monday night," Mirtes Bogea, a spokeswoman for the Sirio-Libanes Hospital, tells PEOPLE. "We do not have any more information about her condition."

Usher's rep had no comment.

Ellen Dastry, a spokeswoman for plastic surgeon Silvio Sterman, who was to perform the "simple liposuction," said last week that Raymond, 38, suffered a cardiac arrest while being anesthetized for the procedure at Sao Paulo's Sao Rafael Hospital.

Less than a minute later, Raymond was revived with heart massage and placed in an induced coma before being moved to the intensive-care unit, said Dasptry.

She was then transferred to Sirio-Libanes Hospital, considered one of the best in Brazil, according to Dastry.
