A Filipino-American nurse has filed a complaint against the Belo Medical Group over an alleged botched skin tightening procedure done on her, a television report said Wednesday.
Aside from suing the medical firm for reckless imprudence resulting in physical injuries, complainant Layla Palaganas is also seeking for the revocation of licenses of her attending physician, Dra. Jennifer Sison De Leon, and the company’s proprietress, popular celebrity surgeon Dra. Vicky Belo.
In a report on QTV’s “News on Q,” Palaganas said the treatment, which was called Thermage, had caused deep scars on her face which she said had affected her social life.
