A leading cosmetic surgeon has been cleared of performing an inappropriate breast enlargement by using implants which were too big
Dr Mohammad Aslam carried out the procedure at the Aesthetic Beauty Centre in Newcastle in 2010.
A Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service panel cleared the medic of any wrongdoing, finding that the operation was appropriate because the patient would “not contemplate going smaller”.
The cosmetic surgeon, who has carried out thousands of breast operations, has been facing charges relating to alleged misconduct in his treatment of four women between 2004 and 2010 at a fitness to practise hearing in Manchester.
Dr Aslam was cleared of all but a few isolated incidents of inadequate communication with patients and poor record keeping.
