The State of California recently suspended the license of Dr. Mahmoud Khattab, a cosmetic surgeon who was known for his TV advertisements. According to a medical board expert, Khattab was found to lack the proper training and knowledge to perform cosmetic procedures. Khattab was the owner of Precision M.D. in Elk Grove, California. According to state documents, one of his patients says he "butchered her," leaving her with extensive scarring and third-degree burns. Another described screaming in pain as he sliced into her without being properly numbed. A third woman says she ended up in the emergency room as a result of his ineptitude. A judge agreed with the expert from the state's medical board and suspended his license.
