Unlicensed doctor tries to restart illegal practice less than 2 weeks after leaving prison: OCDA

An Orange County man already convicted of impersonating a doctor to perform cosmetic procedures

is facing similar charges again after “attempting to start another Botox ...

and thread lift business less than two weeks after he was released from prison,” according to the O.C. District Attorney’s Office.

Elias Renteria Segoviano, 63, admitted to 15 felonies in April 2023:

13 counts of unauthorized practice of medicine,

one count of false indication of a medical license and one count of perjury,

Prosecutors say Segoviano targeted Spanish-speaking women

and used multiple variations of his name to avoid detection by authorities.

Victims who spoke with KTLA said they encountered issues like problems blinking

and a collapsing eyebrow after paying Segoviano thousands.
