Fake Plastic Surgeon Sentenced To Prison

Fake Plastic Surgeon Sentenced To Prison


SOTO WORKED AT A MARTIAL ARTS CENTER IN PARKER UNTIL LAST MONTH. A FAKE COSMETIC SURGEON IS GOING TO PRISON FOR THE BOTCHED PROCEDURES HE DID ON WOMEN. A SURGICAL ASSISTANT FOR MEXICO POST AS A DOCTOR. A JUDGE SENTENCED CARLOS FERNANDEZ FERNANDEZ THIS AFTERNOON. PEOPLE LINED UP AT A STOREFRONT FEDERAL BOULEVARD LOOKING FOR COSMETIC SURGERY. OUR JENNIFER BRICE WAS IN THE COURTROOM TODAY AND SHE HEARD FROM THE VICTIMS. Reporter: SOME OF THE THINGS WE HEARD FROM THESE VICTIMS WERE VERY DISTURBING. PATIENT AFTER PATIENT WERE OPERATED ON WITHOUT HIM — WITHOUT EVEN HAVING THE PROPER MEDICATION. THESE ARE VICTIMS WHO JUST WANTED TO LOOK PRETTIER BUT IN SOME CASES THEY ARE NOW PERMANENTLY SCARRED. CARLA PEREZ IS ONE OF 50 WOMEN WHO THOUGHT THEY WERE GOING TO A CERTIFIED PLASTIC SURGEON. INSTEAD, THESE WOMEN SAY THEY WERE BUTCHERED BY CARLOS HERNANDEZ FERNANDEZ PEREZ SAYS SHE WILL NEVER LOOK THE SAME AGAIN. THE MOST THING I AM VERY ANGRY ABOUT IS THAT I TRUSTED HIM AS A FRIEND AND AS A DOCTOR. Reporter: THIS PATIENT BECAME SICK AFTER ONE OF HER SURGERIES BUT WAS INSTRUCTED BY THE SUSPECT TO NOT GO TO THE HOSPITAL. HE KNEW THAT I COULD HAVE LOST MY LIFE IN ONE OF THE SURGERIES AND HE DID NOT CARE. Reporter: PROSECUTORS SAY THE SUSPECT MADE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS OFF OF THESE WOMEN. BREAKING BONES, DOING THOSE JOBS, DOING IMPLANTS , LIPOSUCTION, FACELIFTS, THINGS WITH THEIR EYES, SCARRING THEM FOR LIFE. Reporter: HERNANDEZ FERNANDEZ SAID THE SITUATION SNOWBALLED AFTER ONE PERSON ASKED HIM FOR MEDICAL ADVICE KNOWING HE HAD SOME KIND OF MEDICAL TRAINING FROM MEXICO. I WISH I COULD GO BACK IN TIME AND DO THE RIGHT THING. ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS BENEFIT THEM. Reporter: NOW, THE VERY HANDS THAT CUT OPEN THESE VICTIMS ARE HANDCUFFED AS THE FAKE SURGEON WILL SPEND THE NEXT SIX YEARS IN PRISON. I WANT TO MENTION THAT THE PROSECUTORS NEGOTIATED A PLEA DEAL ON THE LESSER END OF SIX YEARS CAUSE THEY WANTED TO HAVE THE RESTITUTION PAYOUT OF $189,000. THEY FELT THE MONEY WAS VERY VALUABLE TO THESE VICTIMS BECAUSE IN SOME CASES THEY MIGHT BE ABLE TO GO FIX THESE BOTCHED SURGERIES.
