BEVERLY HILLS (CBSLA.com) — Ehab Mohamed was once riding high, charging patients hundreds of thousands of dollars for cosmetic surgery at his Beverly Hills office.
Everything changed, however, when a female patient who underwent an all-day liposuction procedure in Mohamed’s office died on the table in 2010, prompting the Los Angeles District Attorney’s office to open a criminal investigation that’s still ongoing.
He also, according to a KNX investigation, lied about his credentials.
Mohamed, an Egyptian native, was arrested and convicted on charges of trying to sell medical equipment he did not own and served a prison sentence. He was also detained by U.S. Immigration after it was discovered that he had overstayed his visa, KNX 1070’s Charles Feldman reports.
