Plastic Surgeon Dr. Boutte Dances in the Operating Room

Probably best to not have someone operate on you when they’re throwing that ass back.

You want a doctor with some personality, but not this much personality. Dr. Windell Boutte claims to be the #1 Female Cosmetic Surgeon in the Southeast, but a new investigative report between the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and WSB-TV exposes a series of malpractice lawsuits and unorthodox behaviors. This includes recording music and dance videos in the middle of surgery.

Some are saying that Dr. Miami of WEtv does the same thing in his snapchat stories, but others are jumping in to point out that he obtains consent forms beforehand.

Boutte has also faced a series of malpractice lawsuits, including one where a patient’s heart stopped beating in the operating room, and her staff was forced to call 911. This was all during a surgery that Boutte’s office convinced Icilma Cornelius to have in addition to Botox and another anti-wrinkle treatment. As a result of the botched surgery, Cornelius was left with disabilities and permanent brain damage.

Another patient, Mitzi McFarland, went to Dr. Boutte expecting a procedure called SmartLipo, which uses a laser to remove fat. What she ended up with, she says, is an abdomen that looks like something out of a horror movie. She also woke up from surgery in a hotel room she didn’t recognize holding a McDonald’s sandwich with a bite taken out of it. She didn’t know how she got there and believes Dr. Boutte or her staff forged her signature, since she apparently misspelled her own name when she checked in. Attorney Susan Witt says “Dr. Boutte and her staff are more concerned about increasing profits versus a focus on patient safety, which should be of foremost concern.”

What’s Trending has taken a deep dive into this story, and the takeaway is a little creepy. It turns out that Georgia has had a physician shortage since as early as 2014. It’s possible that this is to blame for some of the questionable decisions made by the Georgia Composite Medical Board. The Atlanta Journal Constitution reported in 2014 on the board’s licensing practices, saying:

“The AJC examined more than 500 licensing and disciplinary decisions involving Georgia physicians. On nearly two dozen occasions, the newspaper found, the board allowed physicians cited for criminal offenses or other types of improper behavior to practice in Georgia when boards in other states, reviewing the same matters, told them no.”

They gave licenses to all kinds of people, including a doctor from Texas who had his license taken away when he ordered a hit on a disgruntled patient. Like a murder hit. To hit someone with death. So, this might be why the medical board allowed Dr. Boutte to keep operating, even though she is not a licensed surgeon and they’ve known about these issues for over 2 1/2 years. And, if it takes some videos of her dancing and singing while a person’s stomach is open to finally stop this bad behavior, well, that will be very 2018.

Let’s see what people online are saying.
