After Wednesday's announcement that Tameka Raymond left a Brazil hospital on Monday, photos of her departure were released on Thursday.

Raymond, wife of Usher, was seen at the Airport of Guarulhos, reportedly heading back home to the United States.

She had spent 11 days recovering from a cardiac arrest suffered immediately prior to undergoing plastic surgery.

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

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 Dasptry.

Usher's rep had no comment.
