The article reports that the College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario has censured a Toronto-area doctor for professional misconduct while performing liposuction in his offices. The criticism is the first test of its regulatory crackdown on untrained family physicians who perform cosmetic surgery. Last April 2008, the College had adopted new regulations proscribing physicians from claiming that they are cosmetic surgeons, or advertising such capabilities.
