A Brazilian plastic surgeon has been suspended after flaunting bags of removed human fat and skin from her patients in TikTok dance videos.  

The Regional Medical Board of the State of Sao Paulo (Cremesp) suspended Caren Trisoglio Garcia last Thursday after the social media videos emerged.

In the videos, the surgeon, who is based in the Brazilian municipality of Ribeirao Preto, can be seen smiling and dancing along to lively music while flaunting the removed fat and skin of her patients.

In one video, she can be seen holding a plastic bag of human fat to the camera, which she captioned ‘This is the breast’, before brandishing another liquid-filled bag, which she captioned ‘This is the underarm fat’.

In another video, she can be seen holding up an ample cut of fat and skin, which she captioned ‘Today’s trophy’ followed by a number of zany face emojis and a red love heart emoji.

Garcia had already been suspended from the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery (SBCP) for six months after the board found her videos unethical.

The SBCP found that Garcia had broken five of its internal regulations, including sharing images of body parts, even with the patient’s authorisation.

SBCP president Estefano Luiz Favaretto told local news channel EPTV that doctors were outraged when they saw Garcia’s videos, and he encouraged Cremesp to ‘take action’.

The surgeon boasts over 643,000 followers and some 11 million ‘likes’ on TikTok, where she also posts videos of herself posing and working out.
