Beauty is only skin deep. A 37-year-old businesswoman who underwent breast implant and cheekbone enhancement learned this the hard way when her chest became itchy, sored and reddened four years after the cosmetic surgery.
When the woman confronted her plastic surgeon, the latter offered to fix the problem by extracting the implanted silicone gel in her breasts. She also offered to enhance the customer’s butt.
But the businesswoman was already suspicious. After a background check, her suspicion was confirmed as she found out that her 34-year-old plastic surgeon had no license. The victim reported the fake doctor to the police and an entrapment operation was set up.
In their next meeting, police arrested the fake surgeon and her male assistant. The evidence was glaring as she was caught in possession of surgery tools, including 60 syringes used for injecting silicone, bottles of artificial fats and anesthesia.
The suspect also admitted she has been doing breast implantation for 10 years because she has no other means of earning a living.
Getting busted was a fitting end for the fake breast enhancer. She now faces charges of estafa and violation of Republic Act 2382 or Medical Act.
