Plastic surgeon Edgar Contreras authorized to operate
For the third time, plastic surgeon Edgar Contreras has regained his medical license after being suspended following a patient’s death.
In 2006, Contreras was absolved of responsibility for the death of former consul Maria de los Angeles Morel, who died after a liposuction procedure. In 2010 he was absolved of responsibility for the death of journalist Isabel Vargas, also after liposuction and whose relatives accused him of involuntary homicide.
Earlier this year the National District prosecutor closed his clinic in the National District after the death of another patient, 23-year old Sharlene Cedeno in April 2015.
According to Listin Diario, the Public Health Ministry has now notified Contreras that his period of suspension is over and he can practice once again.
The Ministry said that the decision was taken following a report issued by the National Forensic Science Institute (INACIF).
