Plastic surgeon pleads guilty to performing surgery without a license

Posted: Updated:
WESTBURY -

A plastic surgeon from Westbury has admitted to performing plastic surgery on 60 people, despite losing his medical license.

Brad Jacobs lost his license to practice in 2007 after dozens of charges of professional medical misconduct.

However, prosecutors in 2011 say Jacobs conspired with a Queens doctor to perform plastic surgeries for cash.

As part of his plea deal, Jacobs will be sentenced to three to nine years in prison.

The doctor he allegedly worked with, Dr. Nicholas Sewell, has not yet been tried.
