In a person's quest to achieve a better physical appearance, some can go to extremes. A licensed doctor will typically be able to fairly assess the efficacy and safety of a requested procedure before proceeding, but when a doctor is not actually a doctor their actions can be dangerous and sometimes deadly. The victims of this medical malpractice may never know what went wrong.
When a patient is told that the medical condition they have is serious, panic can set in. Often patients seek the help of medical specialists, doctors who are known in the profession to have expertise in a particular area of medicine. So when a doctor suggests a procedure, patients often are under the impression that the doctor can in fact perform the procedure.
