They go to med school, junior doctor and then years and years of surgical training (okay so a few on the list skipped this bit) and finally they reach the pinnacle of their career, they become a fully fledged cosmetic or plastic surgeon. And then they lose the plot start wearing their underpants on their head and stick two pencils up their nose while thinking of creative things to do with the fat they sucked out of their last patient. We could have added so many more..but we don’t want to put you off too much.
He was one of Germany’s most celebrated plastic surgeons and worth a reported $10 million. After his expensive first marriage failed he decided to find himself a plain, chubby girl from a rural Bavarian town who he could turn into his own Barbie trophy wife (with a big dollop Eurotrash styling thrown in). When he “created” Tatjana he liked to think he was creating “the perfect woman”. After Franz had performed more than 20 operation to create his dream wife it all started to go wrong for him. First she left him for another wealthy old dodger called Helmut Becker known as the “Car King of Düsseldorf” and they set up a love nest in Marbella, Spain. The next part is a little grey but involved Franz being robbed and attacked with an axe by a gang. He was so badly beaten he died two weeks later in hospital. Ironically this propelled Tatjana in the spot light and she immediately found celebrity fame in Germany’s gutter press and her plastic looks can be seen adorning many magazines. The final twist in the tale is Tatjana’s arrest in connection with her husband’s death and her conviction for her part in the plot (they managed to pin insurance fraud on her). And with Franz millions in the bank I don’t think we will be seeing a wrinkle appear on her pulled back face anytime soon. Oh and the latest is she hooked up with Prince Ferfried von Hohenzollern but left him after he became bankrupt.
Where is he now? Dead
A plastic surgeon in the UK he got his name “the flying doctor” because of the speed at which he used to perform his cosmetic surgery procedures. It is said he would do a facelift in just forty minutes instead of the normal two to four hours. He had 70 serious complaints pending against him from former patients who he left close to death with infections and gaping holes in their flesh. Many of his colleagues had described him as “verging on the psychopathic” and “psychotic”. The list of complaints against him is long and gruesome but before he could face disciplinary action he withdrew from medical practice.
Where is he now? Retired
Priscilla Presley and number of Hollywood high society are just a few of the many thousands of former patients disfigured by Daniel who claimed to have found a new anti ageing solution (the solution turned out to be an industrial type of low quality silicone that is used in automotive industry) Argentinean born Daniel Serrano was unlicensed to provide any kind of treatment and had little medical training was dubbed “Dr. Daniel” and “Dr. Jiffy Lube” charged thousands of dollars for his treatment. The injections caused lumps in his victims lip that made it hard for them to eat and drink as well as speak. He is currently serving time in a Federal Prison.
Where is he now? Out of prison trying to avoid deportation
Adams is a high profile plastic surgeon who had it all. A list of celebrity clients as well as being a TV regular with his own shows he hit the dizzy height when he appeared on Oprah. But it all started to go horribly wrong for Jan. He was the plastic surgeon who performed surgery on Donda West (the mother of rapper Kanye West) when she died after he did her lipo. He stormed off Larry King Live ripping off taking off his microphone and ear piece saying he wasn’t going to defend himself. He returned to Larry King last year claiming his business been destroyed by the publicity surrounding the case (hey Jan that’s what happened when a celebrity dies under your care) Oh and he seems to have a serious drink problem after being arrested three times for DUI and for driving without a license. In January 2009 he was sentenced to one year in jail in California.
Where is he now? Prison
Kaweewat was the owner of Bio Clinic in Pattaya, Thailand and had a unique way of dealing with patients unhappy with their nips and tucks. He has them shot in the head! After former patient Mrs Apassanan began a lawsuit and PR campaign against him accusing him of disfiguring her after he injected liquid silicone solution into her face (I wonder if he buys it from the same mechanic as Dr. Jiffy Lube above). It is said he paid to have her killed. And for good measure he had the witness in the case killed as well…or so he is accused. It is also rumored he also botched an operation to enlarge the penis of a member of government.
Where is he now? Unknown
He gives a new meaning to the phrase ”Living off the fat of the land”. In Alan’s case the fat was from over seven thousand liposuction patients he treated at his Rodeo Drive clinic and he converted the fat of his patients into a Biofuel to power his fleet of vehicles including his Ford Explorer and his girlfriends’ Lincoln Navigator. He has patients forming a queue to take him to court after it also emerged he let his unlicensed girlfriend and an assistant perform the liposuction surgery on his patients as well and she took out too much fat (maybe they were planning a long road trip and need the extra fuel) He moved to South America after the lawsuit started to stack up.
Where is he now? Bogota, Colombia
He is known as “Doctor Death” and went on the run from his dirty and run down clinic in Marseille France following botched cosmetic surgery operations that resulted in the mutilation and death or near death of at least 90 women. He failed to administer enough anesthetic which results in him putting his patients through severe agony. How fitting that Docteur Maure is pronounced like Docteur mort which when translated from French to English means Doctor death.
Where is he now? Sentenced to three years prison
