Miami cosmetic surgeon accused of medical malpractice
The medical license of a Miami cosmetic surgeon is threatened to be revoked after he allegedly caused serious injuries to at least four of his patients, a Miami Herald article reported on March 16.
Florida health officials are considering revoking the medical license of Doctor Osakatukei “Osak” Omulepu after possible malpractice involving four female patients in May of 2015. Two of the women claimed that they suffered various internal organ injuries and each of these four patients required hospitalization. One of the patients told reports that after spending $6,000 for cosmetic surgery, she had to pay $60,000 for her hospitalization and other treatments in order to recover. Though the four patients, whose names were withheld from the state complaint, did not disclose the medical procedure they underwent, Omulepu was known for performing cosmetic surgery procedures like the “Brazilian butt lift” and liposuction. The doctor reportedly did not have medical malpractice insurance and a “state emergency order” last month prevented him from practicing his profession. Dr. Omulepu was given 21 days to contest the charges filed against him.
