A California man who allegedly posed as doctor and performed liposuction while smoking a cigar will appear in court this week to face several felony charges, the San Francisco Examiner reported.
The Practical Buddhist Responds
After the holidays, the Practical Buddhist would like his belly fat sucked out. Nothing extreme Actually I'd be OK with having a tummy like the guy on the left, the before picture. Good shape and normal. Not gym-obsessed. If it didn't hurt or cost more than thirty five bucks and it was guaranteed safe and the guy did house calls, I might consider it. But if it was expensive, I'd rather eat less and save money two ways. Or if it was dangerous, I'd do something fun and dangerous, like sky diving. But live and let live.
I can tell you that if the guy charged a lot less than everybody else, and lit up a cigar during the operation and made me hold my own IV bag, I'd be a little suspicious.
