Fake doctor arrested for bum surgery

A US woman who wanted to work at a nightclub started searching for someone who could perform plastic surgery at a cheap price to give her a more curvaceous body.

What she found was a woman posing as a doctor who filled her buttocks with cement, mineral oil and flat-tyre sealant, Florida police say.

The suspect - who police say was born a man and identifies as a woman - apparently performed the surgery on herself, and investigators say she may have victimised others.

Oneal Ron Morris, 30, was arrested on Friday after a year on the run and has been charged with practising medicine without a licence with serious bodily injury.

Police photos show Morris as a small-framed woman with bee-stung pouty lips, arched eyebrows, oversized hoop earrings - and a large backside. She was released from jail on bond.
