Fifty-three-year-old Guadalupe Viveros and 50-year-old Alejandra Viveros were arrested this week at a residence in the 13100 block of Mira Mar Drive in Pacoima on suspicion of practicing medicine without a license, according to Los Angeles police.
Each was being held in lieu of $20,000 bail.
Authorities allege the pair was running an illicit "cosmetic surgery fillers" business in nearby Sylmar. States the LAPD:
Victims identified have complained of becoming ill as a result of being injected by these fillers. In some cases, these fillers have hardened into solid plastic and have developed infections in the victims. The suspects specialize in cosmetic filler injections to the buttocks and facial area.
Guadalupe Viveros claimed to be a doctor in Mexico, but police said she was not a licensed doctor stateside.
Investigators are looking for more information about the pair. If you can help call 818-834-3115.
