A Brazilian plastic surgeon known as Doctor Bumbum has been charged with murdering one of his patients.

Denis Furtado got his nickname because he’s known for procedures to make women’s bottoms bigger.

The surgeon went on the run for four days after performing an operation on Lilian Calixto to enlarge her buttocks at his apartment in Rio de Janeiro.


Ms Calixto, 46, died after he allegedly used a larger dose of a chemical than is recommended during the operation.

Furtado, who amassed 650,000 Instagram followers by posting pictures of his work, was arrested last month.

Police said they found the surgeon, who is allegedly not registered to practice medicine in Rio de Janeiro, in the same city following a tip-off.
