Liposuction providers accused of operating illegally

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, Ariz. -

Two so-called liposuction technicians are behind bars after a DEA investigation finds they were operating illegally.

Gustavo Nunez, 50, and Ilda Garcia, 39, of Tucson are facing felony charges of practicing medicine without a license and possession of dangerous drugs.

The charges stem from a 3-month investigation into procedures at the Nutec Clinic.

They're accused of performing liposuction and breast augmentation procedures on two women who both later suffered severe complications.

DEA agents also discovered needles that were being reused on patients.
