The Dubai Police force, in collaboration with the Dubai Health Authority, arrested a European woman who was found to be performing plastic surgeries at home and without a license.
The officers were monitoring the European’s social media accounts as she was offering unlicensed cosmetic treatments.
“A joint team from commercial fraud and anti-hacking section at the Dubai Police and the DHA managed to arrest the suspect who was ambushed by an undercover female officer,” Col. Omar Mohammad bin Hammad, deputy director of anti-economic crimes department, was quoted as saying by Khaleej Times.
“The officer had contacted the suspect and explained her desire to carry out a cosmetic injection. As the suspect started getting things ready for the treatment, the police unit raided the flat and arrested her red-handed. The police confiscated medical substances and equipment used in cosmetic surgeries, as well as bills proving the purchase of substances and materials used in cosmetic treatments such as botox, fillers, and more,” he further added.
The woman was found to be promoting her services through her Instagram account to book accountments and receive patients discreetly at her apartment.
