Dr. Denis Furtado, a celebrity plastic surgeon known as “Dr. Butt” (Dr. Bumbum), was arrested in Rio de Janeiro on Thursday, July 19, 2018, four days after one of his patients died.
Police had been searching for Furtado since Sunday when his patient Lilian Calixto, a 46-year-old bank manager, passed away at a hospital where Furtado had taken her after a buttock enhancement procedure.
Police said Furtado and his mother, who is also a doctor, were arrested in an office in a business center in the Barra de Tijuca neighborhood.
He faces murder charges while his mother is accused of being an accomplice.
