Loophole in VA Law Lets Any Doctor Perform Plastic Surgery

Tummy tuck by a family doctor?  Face lift from your gynecologist?  It's happening. A loophole in a Virginia law lets any doctor perform plastic surgery on a patient.

"It was embarrassing," said Supen Bear, who woke up from her plastic surgery and couldn't open her eyes.  Two years later, her right eye still won't open.  She uses tape to hold her eyes up; otherwise, she wouldn't be able to see. 

"I don'y know what to do," she said.

Bear went to a surgeon in Fairfax County to have fat removed from her eyelids. Her attorney, Gary Mims, says the surgeon who performed the procedure wasn't qualified and cut a muscle in her eye, leaving it permanently damaged.

Laura Jones is dealing with a similar issue.
