'Plastic surgeon' cuffed for in bar boob checks

Not a doctor, not South African. Seems to be a woman

Police in Idaho have put a call out to women who may have submitted to breast examinations in bars and clubs, after it emerged that a booze house female plastic surgeon from South Africa was allegedly no such thing.

Kristina Brittany Ross, from Boise, was nabbed after cops in the potato state received reports that a South African plastic surgeon was freely giving in-bar, hands-on consultations on breast augmentation.

Police tracked down at least two women who had been convinced by the woman's spiel that she was a legitimate practitioner with her extensive technical knowledge of breast augmentation.

She would then refer them to her "office" for follow-up consultations.

However, the employees of a real plastic surgeon's office – the number of which Ross had allegedly handed out to the women - were puzzled by the referrals from bars and clubs and called the cops.

Police quickly got a hold of Ross, and hit her with charges of practicing medicine without a licence.

However, cops were apparently left dumbfounded when it turned she'd already passed through their hands in 2003, when she served a sentence in a maximum security prison for aggravated assault.

Her record listed her as "male to female" in the gender category, as she was apparently beginning a transition from male to female at the time.

While the transgender angle appears to have excited the US media, no one seems exercised about the fact that at no point was Ross an actual South African woman. Or a South African man.

One local woman told local news station Fox 12 "I honestly wouldn't think that the transgender would bother me as much as the fact that they're pretending to be something that they're not, professionally."

Police are appealing for anyone else who had a boob consultation at a bar or club to come forward. ®
