A family practice physician in Stamford, Connecticut recently had his medical license suspended because he was performing plastic surgery. According to court testimony, he offered liposuction in his office, which led to seizures and respiratory arrest.
Dr. Donaldson educates his patients about the proper training required to perform complex surgical procedures. He uses his own background as an example: 4 years of medical school, 5 years of general surgery residency, 2 years of plastic surgery fellowship and 6 months of oculoplastic and aesthetic sub-specialty fellowship.

For major plastic surgical procedures such as liposuction, Columbus, Ohio, plastic surgeon, Jeffrey Donaldson, recommends seeking a real plastic surgeon!
