A second patient has died after surgery at a Brazilian butt-lift clinic in south Florida, and the state medical board has banned a surgeon there from performing the procedures. The Miami Herald reported that Dr. John Sampson will be allowed to keep his medical license, despite the allegation that he performed several unauthorized surgeries in 2021, after he told authorities he would not cut on patients. An administrative complaint from state medical authorities said that a patient died in 2021 at the age of 33, after Sampson punctured the patient's liver and intestines and injected fat from the abdomen into her buttock muscles, a procedure that was banned in Florida in 2019.
