A Georgia plastic surgeon is facing lawsuits after she filmed herself singing and dancing while her patients were exposed on the operating table, according to the Ledger-Enquirer.
Dr. Windell Davis Boutté has four lawsuits against her and has settled five malpractice claims, one of which a patient suffered “catastrophic” brain damage, WSB-TV 2 reports.
“Dr. Boutté and her staff are more concerned about increasing profits versus a focus on patient safety, which should be of foremost concern,” Susan Witt, an attorney representing several patients, told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
One patient, Mitzi McFarland, told WBSB-TV that she saw Dr. Boutté in 2015 for non-invasive liposuction, but that the doctor performed the standard procedure that left her feeling “deformed.”
“It’s more like Freddie Krueger cut my stomach,” McFarland said.
McFarland said she and her sister went to Dr. Boutté after seeing her website, which describes her as a “nationally and internationally known as a competent, caring, empathetic, and artistic cosmetic surgeon and skin specialist.”
The plastic surgeon had uploaded more than 20 videos of her singing and dancing to songs like O.T. Genasis’ “Cut It,” while she cuts into a patient and “Booty” by Jennifer Lopez as she performs butt augmentations. Her assistants were often seen dancing in the background.
