|Brazilian police arrest 'Dr. Bumbum' after patient dies
RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — Police arrested celebrity plastic surgeon Denis Cesar Barros Furtado on Thursday, five days after he went on the run following the death of a patient he gave injections to enlarge her buttocks.
Known as "Dr. Bumbum" — Brazilian slang for backside, Furtado was arrested at an office complex in Rio de Janeiro's Barra de Tijuca neighborhood. Police also arrested his mother, Maria de Fatima Barros, who worked with him.
Police said Furtado performed the buttock enhancement procedure on bank manager Lilian Calixto at his Rio home Saturday. Calixto fell ill during the procedure and Furtado rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she died hours later.
Police say the exact cause of her death has not been determined.
