Disgusting Fake Doctor
A man has been arrested in Spain for posing as a fake doctor. He was performing breast and buttock augmentations in his home, which was reported to be filthy (full of numerous pets). Plus, he was using veterinary tools to inject liquid silicone. The reason real surgeons haven't used liquid silicone since the 1960s is because it can cause discoloration, open sores, and gangrene.

"A man has been arrested in Spain for posing as a fake doctor"

I'm just glad he wasn't posing as a REAL doctor - he might have had even more patients!

On a more serious note might I point out that resent research in India has shown a marked reduction in allergies and asthma in more "unsanitary" conditions.

On a less serious note, "real" surgeons don't do cosmetic surgery unless surgery is required due to accident or birth deformity. Anything else is mere frippery.

Well, I mean you gotta put a little blame on the clients too...c'mon ppl, use common sense, people don't do cosmetic surgeries out of their living rooms!

What if he was a real doctor, but was still disgusting? I've met some disgusting doctors in my time, and they were real, I'll tell you that. Can't put anything past me. Or in me, if you please. Turn my head and do what?

I'm not sure anyone would pose as a FAKE doctor. I think they'd pose as a REAL doctor.

A very silly pretentious man. Good thing he was arrested. I wonder if that doctor is somewhat had a brain damage.
