Meet "Dr. Kitty," the teenager who performed unlicensed cosmetic surgery from her basement

Anyone considering undergoing cosmetic surgery performed by an unlicensed teenager named Dr Kitty in her basement should be aware that there's a risk of infection.

From a Toronto Police press release:

It is alleged that:

- in April 2017, a woman advertised her services, offering a cosmetic surgical procedure, under the name of "Dr. Kitty"

- another woman responded to the advertisement and attended the basement of a home where "Dr Kitty" performed the procedure on her

- within a few weeks, the woman developed an infection and had to seek medical help from a licensed plastic surgeon in Toronto

- the victim required corrective surgery

- the incident was later reported to police

On Friday, October 13, 2017, police attended the address, and Jingyi “Kitty” Wang, 19, of Toronto, was arrested.

She has been charged with:

1) Aggravated Assault.

She is scheduled to appear in court on Saturday, October 14, 2017, at 9 a.m., at Old City Hall.

Investigators believe there may be other victims.
