Cosmetic procedure fatality

FRAMINGHAM

A Brazilian couple has been running an illegal cosmetic surgery clinic from a condominium in Framingham for several years, according to police and customers.

The Globe reports today that the couple sedated women with prescription drugs in order to perform liposuction to reduce their stomachs or to reshape their lips and noses.

The two, Luiz Carlos Ribeiro and his wife, Ana Maria Miranda Ribeiro, are now facing charges after the death of a young woman, Fabiola B. DePaula, who was allegedly undergoing a procedure at their "clinic" on Sunday.
