70-year old nursing assistant arrested for performing over 1,500 illicit cosmetic surgeries on 1,000 victims

A South Korean nursing assistant has been arrested for illegally performing plastic surgery on about 1,000 patients over a period of three years.

The nursing assistant, only identified as a 70-year-old man, posed as a doctor from 2015 to 2018, performing some 1,500 illicit cosmetic surgeries on around 1,000 victims.  Through the illegal medical practices, he earned about 1 billion won (about 900,000 U.S. dollars).

A 56-year-old plastic surgeon, the head of a clinic in Joongrang district in eastern Seoul, was also arrested for his collusion with the nursing assistant in violation of the medical law. The nursing assistant attracted customers from beauty salons and skin care shops near the clinic, mainly performing face-lift and double eyelid surgeries.

Other employees of the clinic thought that the nursing assistant was a real doctor as he and the chief surgeon kept it secret thoroughly, the police was quoted as saying. The nursing assistant and the clinic owner denied all charges brought against them.
