LA woman disfigured by unlicensed surgeon


LA headlines report the most recent and horrifying case of botched plastic surgery – by an unlicensed surgeon.  Not only did the surgeon horribly botch her breast implant procedure – he performed an unauthorized (and unasked for) eyelid procedure – and botched that too.

This story was picked up by Medical News Today – who also adds additional warnings and cautions consumers to check the credentials of their surgeon prior to surgery.  This echos the numerous warnings and stories here at Cartagena Surgery.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has jumped in with a statement of their own – encouraging patients to do their research.
