"As fellow news junkies, we talked about the increasing number of cases we reported on a daily basis about women dying from cosmetic surgeries in Florida, and people who were arrested for not being actual doctors."
During the recent state legislative session Florida lawmakers approved new rules for plastic surgery centers, which have been loosely regulated despite the deaths of patients.
In the last five years, at least 14 women have died after undergoing cosmetic surgeries in South Florida. Even so, Florida law continues to allow doctors who are not surgeons to perform dangerous operations in cosmetic centers.
