'Dr Bumbum' charged with murder after death of patient

Calixto apparently fell ill during the procedure and Furtado rushed her to a nearby hospital, where she died hours later.

Renata Fernandes, the girlfriend of "Dr. Bumbum", was also taken into police custody "on suspicion of taking part in the procedure".

Dozens of deaths among women in Latin America have been put down to the use of synthetic polymers such as the one Dr Furtado is alleged to have used.

This created a "prohibited risk", elevated by the fact that the "invasive procedure" was carried out in an Furtado's apartment which was "provisionally and precariously adapted to attend patients", the statement said, "assuming the risk of the result of his conduct, that is, the death of the victim".

Niveo Steffen, president of the Brazilian Plastic Surgery Society, told Agence France-Presse that "you can not perform plastic surgery inside an apartment".

Furtado was a celebrity who revelled in his nickname in social media posts.

USA pastor Andrew Brunson reacts as he arrives at his home after being released from the prison in Izmir, Turkey July 25, 2018. Hurriyet newspaper said the court in Izmir rejected the appeal, but that a higher court would review the appeal.

But cops say Bumbum lured in patients "with the false promise of quick and immediate beauty". He's garnered more than 600,000 Instagram followers, posted photos of his surgeries to Facebook and videos giving dieting advice on YouTube.

Furtado was not licensed to practice medicine in Rio and investigators say he gave Calixton a super-sized dose of PMMA - significantly more than is recommended.

Additionally, Furtado wasn't allowed to practice in Rio, due to not being in possession of his license to practice.

Relatives told local media that Lilian Calixot said that she was going to Rio for a simple procedure without saying what it was and expected to be back that night. The hospital refused to comment.

Furtado's lawyer, Naiara Baldanza, said at a news conference in Brasilia on Wednesday that her client was innocent and had not turned himself in to police because he was in a panic. That's because he is known as "Dr". Furtado was captured four days later. In 2013, for the first time, more cosmetic surgeries were performed there than in the United States.

Ms Calixto reportedly arrived at the hospital with an abnormally fast heart rate after having silicone injected into each buttock, before her death.
