Famous Brazilian Plastic Surgeon Arrested after Patient Dies

RIO DE JANEIRO – A popular Brazilian buttock-enhancement surgeon who had been on the run for four days following the death of one of his patients was arrested on Thursday in Rio de Janeiro and insisted on his innocence.

On its Twitter account, Rio police said Denis Cesar Barros Furtado – who is widely known as “Dr. Bumbum” – was arrested at a business center in the west of Rio.

Furtado went on the run on July 15, when Lilian Calixto, 46, died of complications after having undergone a buttock-enhancement procedure at Furtado’s home in Rio’s Barra de Tijuca neighborhood.

According to authorities, police arrested him following an anonymous tip-off on his whereabouts.

The authorities had offered 1,000 reais (about $261) for information on Furtado and his mother, Maria da Fatima, 66.

The celebrity doctor’s mother, who was also detained by the police, participated as an assistant during the procedures.

After his arrest, Furtado told media at the Barra da Tijuca police station he had performed more than 9,000 bioplasty procedures and never had a complication, insisting on his innocence.

Furtado spread the results of his work through his widely followed social media accounts where he posted before-and-after photos of patients.
