Man, woman accused of performing illegal cosmetic surgery


Investigators first found out about the couple after a 41-year-old woman came to the hospital with an infection after getting a breast enhancement.

She told deputies she'd gotten the surgery at the home of 34-year-old Yuri Lara and 36-year-old Karen Lara and that she'd also had body contouring, liposuction, and fat injections.

When deputies showed up at the home in the 1500 block of Cade Court in northwest Harris County, they found medical equipment as well as vials of lidocaine, which is used to numb patients.

The pair face multiple charges, and investigators are now looking for other patients to call the HCSO's Criminal Investigations Bureau at 713-967-5810.
