Illegal Surgeries In A California Home

What’s the opposite of seeing a board-certified plastic surgeon for your chosen cosmetic procedure? Perhaps having it performed by an unlicensed welfare recipient in her unkempt home.

San Jose 48-year-old Ha Nguyen was arrested earlier this month for practicing medicine without a license. Specifically, one woman received a shoddy facelift and tummy tuck, and she now has thick scars above her eyebrows, next to her ears and under her lower lip, as well as a 15-inch scar across her abdomen; details of Nguyen’s other botched, unlawful surgeries were not released. Nguyen was also charged with child endangerment, as these illegal surgeries were being performed around her four kids.

Nguyen has never been a licensed physician, and there’s no indication that she’s had any relevant training. Frighteningly, in 2003, she was investigated for performing a disfiguring genital surgery, but the case never went to court.

Remember, legitimate, legal, safe cosmetic surgery is performed only by licensed-ideally board-certified-plastic surgeons in a hospital or accredited surgical center.
