A fake doctor in Sparks, Neveda has pled guilty to performing cosmetic surgery without a license.

Edgar Orozco-Abundis, 40, is reportedly a licensed medical doctor in Mexico. However, he is not licensed in the U.S. where he has been performing various surgeries on people.

Orozco-Abundis is said to have performed nose jobs and stomach stapling. He would prey on fellow undocumented immigrants looking to lose weight or change their appearance.

He was reported to authorities after a woman he had performed a nose job on discovered the state health division had told him to stop procedures immediately because he did not have a license.

Another woman is said to have had her stomach stapled in her apartment in front of her husband. She was also going to have Orozco-Abundis augment both her breasts and buttocks.

On Monday, Orozco-Abundis pled guilty to one felony count of practicing medicine without a license. He will be sentenced on July 17 and will likely receive a suspended prison term and be ordered to probation. Being an illegal immigrant, Orozco-Abundis will also likely have a deportation order filed against and be sent back to Mexico.
