/ 02:32 PM July 18, 2018

A Brazilian celebrity butt-enhancement surgeon called Dr. Bumbum has gone on the run following the death of a patient just hours after undergoing cosmetic surgery at his home in Rio de Janeiro.

Denis Furtado was considered capable of performing magic on women’s bodies, in particular their bottoms, and became known throughout the country for his expertise.

Me lembro bem do dia em que bati essa foto, aliás, que bateram para mim. Era um sábado chuvoso em Brasília, quando uma amiga me pediu uma ajuda, pois enfrentava nas últimas semanas grandes e desconfortáveis problemas, tanto com seu ex marido quanto com sua filha, que absorvia toda a guerra e o stress dos pais separados e se tornava uma criança hiperativa, ansiosa, agressiva e doente, isso aos 4 anos, idade onde o caráter da criança é moldado. Existem dois fatores muito importantes para mudar sua #epigenetica em caráter da #neuromodulacao e da #terapianeural, que são o livre árbitrio e o meio ambiente em que se vive, gerando contaminação, recontaminacao e mudança química de neuromoduladores cerebrais. A criança já estava sendo acompanhada por um psiquiatra, utilizando fortes medicações para se manter calma e dormir, mesmo assim apresentando um descontrole visível, mas emanuelle, a mãe e minha amiga, além de #depressão e #ansiedade, desenvolveu uma grande #enxaqueca. Nesse dia, que seria de descanso para mim, na terrinha quieta de Brasília, final de semana e de chuvinha gostosa, Manu me chamou com emergência pois se sentia muito mal com suas crises de enxaqueca e #dor #dorcronica, me pedindo para intervir. Combinei com ela em minha clinica do lago Sul, realizei uma única sessão da terapia neural e ela simplesmente dormiu… Dormiu por 30 minutos e disse que sonhou todos seus problemas, se lembrou de fatos ocorridos que haviam sido bloqueados e que nem se lembrava, resolveu equações em sua mente que lhe remetiam ao problema quando o gatilho emocional era acionado pelo problema da filha, levantou e estava ótima, sem dor, sem crise, com um lindo sorriso no rosto. Manu disse que iria registrar esse momento e me pediu para “fazer cara de quem domina a situação”, ri e fiz essa pose de “tudo bem, pode confiar em mim”… Me lembro com carinho desse dia, da Manu e da sua filha. Pacientes só lhe procuram quando tem problemas, é um fato de ser médico, mas fico muito feliz com toda a ajuda que pude dar nesse dia. Interessante como toda a TPM e seus sintomas também se resolveram, fato que ela me contou alguns meses após, mas isso conto na próxima… Abraços, #DrDenisFurtado

But now he is wanted by police after Lilian Quezia Calixto died just hours after a butt enlargement procedure at his home in the swanky Barra de Tijuca neighborhood.

Calixto had travelled 2,000 kilometers (1,250 miles) from her home in Cuiaba to see the surgeon to the stars.

But following the controversial injection of acrylic glass filler, Calixto started feeling ill.

Upon arriving at hospital on Sunday, she was suffering from a racing heart-beat and hypertension, and after four heart attacks she died.

Soon after, Furtado disappeared and is now wanted for homicide and criminal association, while his girlfriend, who some media claim was also his assistant, has been detained.

The news has caused shock waves throughout the industry — Brazil is second only to the United States for the number of plastic surgeries carried out.

The Brazilian Plastic Surgery Society (SBPC) was quick to denounce Furtado, saying “the growing invasion of non-specialists in the specialty has provoked more and more fatalities like this one.”

“You cannot perform plastic surgery inside an apartment. Many people are selling a dream, a fantasy to patients in an unethical way and people, weakened, are often attracted to low prices, without considering whether or not the conditions are adequate,” SBPC president Niveo Steffen told AFP.

Steffen said the injection of synthetic biopolymers or polymers, like acrylic glass, is very dangerous and has caused dozens of deaths among women in Latin America, especially in Venezuela.

He said Furtado’s case demonstrates the “trivialization of cosmetic procedures by unspecialized professionals, who often aren’t doctors and are putting people at risk.”

According to the G1 internet site, Furtado has been charged by police four times for illegally practicing medicine and crimes against consumers.   /vvp
