Whoah, somebody let their interest for DIY go a little too far — Toronto Police were alerted to the home of Chinese-Canadian teen Jingyi “Kitty” Wang after another woman developed an infection from ‘Dr. Kitty’s’ basement operation.
Turns out, 19-year old Wang performed a face-filing operation on the unnamed woman after she put out an ad in April.
The customer looking for a cheap deal then developed an infection, where corrective surgery from a licensed plastic surgeon was obviously needed.
The aggravated woman then later reported the incident to police and Kitty was arrested on October 13 and charged with aggravated assault.
Police said in the report they believed the woman’s case was not an isolated incident and that there could be more people who responded to the ad.
“Who knows how many other establishments this ad is placed in?” Toronto police spokesperson Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook said.
“It’s quite discreet how it is, so there’s a possibility that there may be others and a very high likelihood that there may have been others who would have responded to this ad and sought the services of this person,” added Cook.
Persons with information are strongly encouraged to call police at (416)-808-3200.
In January, a home at a quiet neighborhood in North Delta was raided by police and the College of Physicians and Surgeons after reports reached them that a ‘fake doctor’ was granting operations on the premises, according to this report.
It added the authorities also focused on the basement of the home where they found a business license and cosmetic posters, and certificates that supposedly certified medical credentials.
However, the suspected fake doctor is not registered with the College of Physicians and Surgeons and is not a licensed physician listed on any publicly available, worldwide database. She is however, believed to have training in esthetics and permanent makeup application.
The raid was the second done by the College of Physicians and Surgeons with assistance from the police at the time; as in 2015 they helped to arrest a woman who was granting illegal Botox injections in Vancouver.
Basically, getting anything injected into your body by a person without the proper medical training is an infection, or worse, death sentence waiting to happen. If you’re planning on getting work done on your body anyway, might as well save up for the really good doctors.
