North Myrtle Beach Police arrested Miguel Orozco, Nubia Trujillo Rojas, and Adriana Neibles for performing illegal liposuction in the back bedroom of a condominium.
Police charged the three with practicing medicine without a license, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature, and accessory before and after the fact of a felony.
Last Friday, police were called to Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for a patient who was sick and bleeding from the illegal operation.
The patient told the police she found the group on a web site and they took her to Ashley Park Apartments and then gave her pills. She paid $1500 up-front for the operation.
When she woke up, the procedure was over and they were driving her back to Myrtle Beach.
The woman said she was concerned because there was another patient lined up.
Police arrested the three suspects on Saturday.
