Florida police have arrested faux doctor Ana Josefa Sevilla in one of the growing number of cases involving unlicensed cosmetic operations. In this case, Servilla is accused of using “Fix-a-Flat” aerosol instead of Botox.
In one of the cases under investigation, a woman was actually approached in a parking lot with an offer of injections to improve the appearance of her buttocks. I am not sure how you make that particular pitch without being slugged, but it appears that some women actually sign up.
We have been following these cases around the country, including some which led to the death of the patient.
Police say that the victims in this case were not injected with silicone nor Botox, but rather industrial liquids including Super Glue and a tire-inflation aerosol product called “Fix-a-Flat.” Servilla allegedly dressed as a doctor. She allegedly struck up a conversation as Rodriguez was walking out of a health spa. The victim said that Sevilla gave her a flyer on buttocks augmentation. Rodridquez paid $1,100 for the procedure. She, however, immediately knew something was wrong when she felt extreme pain despite allegedly being given anesthesia. She says that she passed out and later developed a severe infection. She was hospitalized and required surgery.
Sevilla now faces two counts of unlicensed practice of a health care profession and practicing or attempting to practice medicine without a license.
The article below describes other women dying from such procedures by fake doctors, including one death as a so-called “pumping party.”

Love the “inflate-a-date” comment!
Addiction Analyst –
Think about this: If you’re a professional big rig driver or cab driver or ambulance driver, you still need a special license, training and pass a pretty challenging road test before you can even think about driving limousine.
But a foot doctor, a psychiatrist or a flu specialist can hang out a sign tomorrow and immediately start cutting on your face, by calling himself (or herself) a “cosmetic surgeon.” Presto! Magic! No training needed. Want your breasts bigger? No problem. I read a book about that.
And 500 Americans die every day while being treated medically, and we walk around like clones letting it happen.
Didn’t hear anything about THAT lunacy, during all that 2-year blabber on ‘health care’ did you?
The exasperating fact is, no other profession in society does more damage to citizens. Which is exactly what we get when we allow medicine to police itself.
Lord love a duck.
It is hard to know which is more dangerous, going to a licensed plastic surgeon or just using fix-a-flat.
all that tireless work only to discover the patient wasn’t the michelin man…
“I have often been told to save my breath, I might need the air to get my date in the right position…..I still haven’t figured that one out……lol….”
AY, thanks for the hysterics….but that’s almost as nasty as the troll brigade nasties! 🙂
I can assure you that when I was an elementary school librarian I had an appetite for books and reading when I was between the stacks. You SHOULD be red in the face. I think I may have to take you out to the woodshed, you bad boy!
I hear tell that thar are some that have different appetites when they are between the stacks….I am red in the face now..
very good post on doctors and patients.

First, I hate to break the news, but men all over this country (and they say the Japanese have it down to a science)have been entertaining “Inflate-a-Date” girls for decades.
As a physician misbehavior investigator, I have two points to make about this particular article:
1. The perpetrator should be locked away for a very long time – but she won’t be.
2. The “patient” is too stupid to breathe, and she too should be locked away where she can’t hurt herself with, say, a big mean ham sandwich.
3. of all the fears normal folks might have regarding errant medical treatments, you can trust me when I say it ain’t the “fake docs” that are doing the damage.
For the record, the rather secretive organization known as the National Practitioner Data Bank holds files on an eye-popping 237,000 doctors, referred to by watchdog group Public Citizen as “Dangerous” or “Questionable.”
And well over 250 of them were themselves injecting fake Botox into our people who prefer plastic.
Last year alone, 2,490 physicians were found guilty of serious misbehavior. This year? Well, I’ve managed to find 2,080 thus far.
A recent Harvard study revealed that “48,000 Americans die each year because they can’t afford medical care.”
Fascinating, when you consider a previous Harvard study discovered 198,000 die as a result of medical care they COULD afford.
See “America’s Dumbest Doctors” for more fun detail. And in the meantime, do all you can, folks, to dodge the Medical Maniacs, because, trust us, they – are – everywhere.
“Ooops. Dropped a chip.”
I bet you dropped it deliberatley didnt you, right in you crotch, no doubt your muscular helper monkey will grab it for you, but i do suspect that this was ur intent all along. the monkey will appreciate a little more exercise for his right arm
you do yard work on Sundays? I thought that was your day off from doing odd jobs for the locals.
Gotta be someone else’s yard, no way you make a living that could provide you with a yard. To dependent on logic and the dictionary. I can hear it now:
Gunny Rhubarb: Bud take that trash can out and empty it.
bud: But Gunny Rhubarb it ain’t full, it ain’t logical to empty it ifn it ain’t full. and besides I don’t know what a trash can is unlessn I have my dictionary.
Gunny Rhubarb: bud there is going to be a party here tonight and we need the trash cans empty so they dont overflow.
bud: oh, I didnt know that.
Gunny Rhubarb: of course you didnt you dumb sum bitch because all you can do is use a computer and logic but you sure as shit cant put 2 and 2 together.
Yep just too logical but not giving much thought to anything.
No. Merely typing around a sandwich, you must have some strange ass computer equipment green boy, or one hell of a keyboard
“as take a break from yard work.”
you burying another one in the yard Dopey?, they gonna catch you one day you know.
What I meant to say was “I think again you fail”. But you didn’t, you said somethin totally different didn’t you, so again you fail
“Should know that by now” should know that you are a little green waste of time? or that you are full of shit? or that maybe you are a self confessed illegal drug user.
“I’m criticizing you and your infantile buddie” so does that mean that you now accept that there are more than one of us, or are you just lying again.
coz that would mean that you were wrong in initially saying we were Spamheed and then we were me,
so are we now more than one person? I really hope so coz these shorts are so damn crowded they are killin me
“as I take a break”
Ooops. Dropped a chip.
You half-wits enjoy your self-flagellation. I’m going to finish off my lawn.
No. Merely typing around a sandwich as take a break from yard work. What I meant to say was “I think again you fail”. But you should know that by now. I’m criticizing you and your infantile buddies. Make no mistake about it.
“I again you fail to make a distinction.”
you fail to make the distinction, is it him, or is it you that you are addressin?
u don’t seem to know whether ur comin or goin boy,
although judgin from your failure to get laid the other night, I would say u was goin
FAIL (413) doesn’t know whether he’s criticising himself, or someone else
“Since John Boehner is poised to be the next speaker of the house “logic” would warrant a wee bit more respect.”
Only if you’re illogical and dumb enough to think respect is not earned instead of blindly owed based on title or position.
I again you fail to make a distinction.
I respect the office Ol’ Orange Boner holds (Representative) and the position Ol’ Rep. Impeachment Is Off The Table Pelosi has of this moment (Speaker of the House), but as people and for the lousy job they both have done, I don’t respect them at all.
More than I respect you lot of Rube-trolls, but that’s still not saying much. Because as bad as they suck, they’re still better than you guys.
“are school librarians still a hit…..”
A hit with whom? A hit where? Can you be more specific with your question?
I have often been told to save my breath, I might need the air to get my date in the right position…..I still haven’t figured that one out……lol….
Elaine…..You are good…… are school librarians still a hit…..
