A celebrity plastic surgeon is behind bars after he allegedly went on the run after one of his patients died after getting butt injections from him.
Brazilian doctor, Denis Cesar Barros Furtado, known as “Dr. Bumbum,” reportedly gave bank manager Lilian Calixto butt injections at his Rio home on Saturday, according to Time.
She fell ill during the procedure and Furtado rushed her to the hospital, where she died hours later.
Authorities say Furtado disappeared after he dropped the woman off at the hospital and a judge issued a warrant for his arrest.
Authorities said he was captured at a Rio office block after the police received an anonymous tip.
Authorities also arrested Furtado’s mother, also a medical doctor, who is believed to have assisted during the surgery.
The doctor now faces charges of homicide and criminal association.
Addressing reporters inside a police station on Thursday, Furtado said he was innocent of any wrongdoing.
“A fatality has occurred – a fatality that could happen to any doctor,” he said in a video aired by the G1 news portal.
