It’s Canada. Dr. Kitty won’t be deported if she’s convicted.
Police have arrested a 19-year-old Toronto woman who allegedly offered plastic surgery in an unlicensed basement medical clinic through “discreet” advertising placed in at least one local restaurant.
Jingyi “Kitty” Wang was taken in by the Toronto Police Service on Friday, Oct. 13, and charged with aggravated assault after receiving a complaint from a woman who developed a serious infection after responding to an ad proffering the services of a “Dr. Kitty” and undergoing a cosmetic facial procedure beneath a private home in the Bayview Ave. and Sheppard Ave. E. area. The victim had to seek the services of a licensed plastic surgeon to cure the infection and also required corrective surgery, police say.
The unfortunate patient reportedly underwent a surgical procedure for “face filler,” Toronto police spokesperson Const. Allyson Douglas-Cook said on Sunday evening. The victim has not been identified, but Douglas-Cook said she believes she is a young woman “close in age” to the accused.
The ad touting Dr. Kitty’s services — “very vague in terms of what was being advertised,” but allegedly featuring a barcode that interested parties could scan with a cellphone for more information — was apparently placed in a restaurant in the Yonge and Finch area in April 2017, raising concerns that there might be more of them out there and that more people might have responded.
“Who knows how many other establishments this ad is placed in?” Douglas-Cook said. “It’s quite discreet how it is, so there’s a possibility that there may be others and a very high likelihood that there may have been others who would have responded to this ad and sought the services of this person.”
Wang was arrested Friday after police raided the alleged basement clinic at Bayview and Sheppard E. She appeared in court Saturday. Details on when her next appearance will take place were unavailable on Sunday evening.
You have to suspect the victim in this story is another Asian. Which raises the legit question about how “superior” and smart these people really are.
Plastic surgery in a basement? By a teen?
