A Georgia cosmetic surgeon who is being sued for malpractice reportedly recorded videos of herself singing and dancing over exposed, unmoving patients during procedures. She then posted them on YouTube.
Videos of Dr. Windell Boutté dancing to music while making incisions in patients have made things even worse for her. Several patients came forward in WSB-TV’s news story with complaints about the quality of Boutté’s work. In one case, there was a complaint about permanent brain damage. She walked away from the reporter asking questions and did not comment.

One woman who came forward said that results of Boutté’s operation “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”
“It’s more like Freddy Krueger cut my stomach,” she said.
The doctor is also being sued by Ojay Liburd for leaving his mother with permanent brain damage after an eight-hour procedure. Her heart stopped.
He said his mother Icilma Cornelius went for a procedure in 2016 weeks before her wedding and will now need care for the rest of her life.
“She just wanted to be perfect for her wedding dress,” he said. “She had everything going for her.”
Boutté’s website boasts of magazine and TV appearances, board certification since 1997, 20 years in Atlanta of family-owned success and more than 100,000 procedures done.
“Dr. Windell D. Boutté and her team of healthcare professionals strive to always provide exceptional expertise in their chosen field of dermatology, always searching for new advances in scientific and medical technology,” the mission statement of the practice says. “Premiére Dermatology and Surgery hosts a comprehensive array of surgical and non-surgical skin care services.
