Ghastly “Surgeries” Detailed in Guzmangarza Preliminary Hearing

The preliminary hearing of Carlos Guzmangarza, an accused medical impostor who allegedly performed cosmetic procedures and defrauded women of thousands of dollars, continued Monday with grisly testimony from one of the alleged victims of the case.

The 49-year-old Guzmangarza is charged with running a Mission District business called Derma Clinic, where he allegedly posed as a physician’s assistant named Carlos Guzman who was qualified to perform plastic surgery. He is now in custody in lieu of $1 million bail.

One of Guzmangarza’s alleged victims, questioned by Guzmangarza’s public defender Michelle Tong, described a harrowing experience of being injected through her eyebrow and her forehead, until the needle poked out on top, during what she believed was a facelift at Guzmangarza’s clinic at 2588 Mission Street in 2010.

Another alleged incident took place at Guzmangarza’s home, where the witness said he performed a buttock augmentation procedure near his dining room table, with his mother present in the house.

“I felt a bit of mistrust,” the Spanish-speaking victim said through a translator. Guzmangarza, known to the victim as “Dr. Carlos,” allegedly had her stand while he injected her buttocks with liquid to make them “bigger.”
