Suspect faces new charges in fake liposuction doctor case 

The case against a man accused of fraudulently performing cosmetic surgery got even more serious this week after another alleged victim came forward.

Carlos Guzmangarza, 49, of San Francisco was arrested last month after allegedly performing a liposuction on a woman while posing as a physician’s assistant in 2010. During the $3,000 surgery, he smoked a cigar and had the woman hold her IV bag, prosecutors said. Later, he allegedly arrived at her home with 6 pounds of her own fat and dumped it down her toilet.

Guzmangarza is being held on $750,000 bail, charged with practicing medicine without a license, assault, false impersonation, identity theft and grand theft.

Police arrested Guzmangarza while in jail Tuesday on new charges after another woman told police that she had paid him for three cosmetic skin treatment consultations beginning last July, police said.

Guzmangarza, who claimed he was a doctor, allegedly touched the woman inappropriately during the consultations and made “sexually charged remarks of an offensive nature.” Prosecutors are reviewing the new case, as well as reports from additional possible victims.
