For Adianet Galván Gonzáles and her circle of family and friends, the popular surgical procedure known as a Brazilian butt lift was the thing to do. Galván's aunt had it done about three years ago. So did Galván's future sister-in-law, and many of her friends.

Most of them used the same clinic — New Life Plastic Surgery in Miami. And all of them recovered without medical complications, said Patricia Santos, Galván's aunt.

A South Florida woman posing as a plastic surgeon has been sentenced to a year behind bars after authorities say she injured dozens of victims in botched procedures.

A plastic surgeon first tipped off authorities in 2014 after allegedly seeing at least 40 scarred and disfigured women who had been operated on by unlicensed doctors at the Health and Beauty Cosmetic Surgery Office in West Palm Beach.

Monica Daza was sentenced this month to a year in jail, 5-years' probation, and ordered to pay $75,000 in restitution.
