As a board certified plastic surgeon, I see patients every week who are seeking either functional or cosmetic improvements for their body parts. This includes procedures such as breast augmentation, tummy tuck, liposuction, rhinoplasty, and fat injections (fat transfer). These are all excellent procedures that are very safe when performed by a well trained, board-certified plastic surgeon. Unfortunately, there are many non-plastic surgeons out there who continue to try and perform plastic surgical procedures. The results can be disastrous and sometimes even fatal. There really is no substitute for safe plastic surgery.
Pictured to the left is Oneal Ron Morris, a male to female transgender patient who has been posing as a Florida plastic surgeon and administering toxic chemical injections (glue and Fix-a-Flat) to unsuspecting patients.
Florida authorities note that one victim who was looking to get a nightclub job sought treatment with Morris in order to achieve a curvier figure. This victim paid Morris $700 for the injections in 2010. Practicing illegally, and within an un-sterile environment in her home, Morris allegedly used some type of tubing and inserted the toxic chemicals into her buttocks and abdominal soft tissues..
The victim, who has not been identified due to HIPPA laws suffered very serious infections which resulted in permanent scarring around the injection sites. The victim required multiple operations in order to treat the infections and also required a prolonged period of home health nursing visits.
