Another death blamed on notorious Dominican plastic surgeon

Santo Domingo.-  Charilín Cedeño, 23, died Thursday during cosmetic surgery at Contreras Clinic, owned by Edgar Contreras, whose notorious practice has been blamed for the deaths of several patients.

Cedeño arrived Tuesday with a friend from the US for a liposuction but died at the clinic located in the Arroyo Hondo sector of the National District. Relatives say she died of cardiac arrest resulting from medical malpractice.

Previous deaths

At least three women charged Contreras of malpractice at the National District Office of the Prosecutor in May last year but was released on bail. In June that year the Public Health Ministry temporarily closed the clinic for violating the Health Law and its regulations.
