The College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. is urging the public to get tested for hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV following a raid of an alleged illegal cosmetic surgery practice in a North Delta home.
On Dec. 20, the college was granted an order by the B.C. Supreme Court to enter and search a home at 10519 Modesto Place.
According to the college, it had reason to believe Zhuo (Sabrina) Li was operating a business under the name of Sabrina Permanent Make-up Studio Inc., and providing cosmetic medical services, which she is not qualified or authorized to perform.
The order further allowed the college to seize all items believed to be used by Li in the unlicensed practice of medicine, which included boxes and vials of injectable medication and receipts for financial transactions ranging from $300 to $5,000.
“Based on the findings, the college believes it is highly probable that Ms. Li was performing cosmetic surgery such as facial injections, eyelid lifts and facial implants, which are restricted activities that only qualified medical professionals are authorized to perform,” said Dr. Heidi Oetter, registrar and CEO of the College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C.
Fraser Health also conducted a public health risk assessment and based on its review, recommended to the college that a warning be issued to all individuals who received surgical services from Li at Sabrina Permanent Makeup Studio Inc.
