Illegal Cosmetic Surgery - Health Channel


Illegal Cosmetic Surgery |

Dr. Ricardo Castrellon, Medical Director of the Burn Center at South
Miami Hospital, says the most common illegal cosmetic procedure seen in South Florida is biopolymer injection, which is really silicon.

Most of the time, this procedure is performed in a barbershop or
similar and it’s not done by a doctor.

The doctor also explains there is something called “Body dysmorphic disorder”, where there are patients seeking from one plastic surgeon to another plastic surgeon.
