Man Performing Lipo Lacked License

A Kissimmee man who performed liposuction from a massage establishment was arrested Thursday on two counts of practicing medicine without a license.  Mariano Ugarriza Fuentes, a surgical assistant, was arrested by the Metropolitan Bureau of Investigation for allegedly providing the services at Sculptural Orlando, a massage center with no medical license, according to the Orlando Sentinel.  Several agents, posing as potential clients visited the clinic and were shown several “before” and “after” photos of patients whose procedures were allegedly done by Ugarriza Fuentes.
