Jail time for French ‘garage surgeon’

A Frenchman who claimed to be one of the world’s leading cosmetic surgeons, but in fact left patients mutilated, has been sentenced to jail. The judge in the court in Marseille, France, said Michel Maure had “practised garage medicine – which is a sign of total disregard of others”.

Maure was sentenced to four years in prison – one of them suspended.

Maure was a qualified doctor but not a trained plastic surgeon.

There were 96 complaints from former patients against Dr Maure, 59, including allegations that he had carried out painful procedures under local anaesthetic, in a dirty clinic.

Now, if he was an American quack, the worst penalty would be banning him from whichever country club he belonged to.

Yes, Catherine, I stole the photo from your post.
