Police Arrest Syrian Doctor for Illegal Cosmetic Procedures
Police have arrested a Syrian doctor and his wife in Beirut’s neighborhood of Hamra on charges of performing illegal cosmetic procedures, the Internal Security Forces announced in a statement on Monday.
It said the practitioner carried out plastic surgeries inside an apartment in Hamra.
The two were arrested red-handed on Saturday while performing cosmetic procedures for three girls, said the statement.
Human traces as the result of earlier surgeries were found.
Police confiscated surgery instruments inside the apartment.
The doctor only comes to Lebanon on demand, and occasionally changes his “clinic’s” location, said the statement.
Back in July, a woman has filed a claim accusing the doctor of sexual assault and practicing medicine without a license.
The file was referred to related judicial authority.
