The fact that he did the procedure in his apartment might have been a red flag.
What Lilian Calixto, 46 told people she was going to him for was only part of the story.
The Bank Manager and mother of two told people she was going to get an implant as part of menopause treatment. What she didn’t tell people was that she was also getting injections into her buttocks to make them more pronounced.
Hours after the procedure, she was dead in a hospital and now the doctor responsible is in hiding.
Dubbed Dr BumBum, Furtado is a famous face on Brazilian TV and has more than 647,000 followers on Instagram.
He claims to have performed more than 8,000 bottom enlargement surgeries, with the rich and famous among his clients.
Married mum-of-two Calixto, from Cuiaba, central Brazil, reportedly arrived at Furtado’s apartment in the upmarket Barra da Tijuca district of Rio on Saturday night.
Soon after receiving the injections at 10pm, she reportedly fell ill and started gasping for air, and her condition quickly deteriorated.
Furtado took her to the local Barra D’Or hospital, where she was admitted at 11pm in an “extremely severe condition, unresponsive to manoeuvres”.
Despite the efforts of hospital staff, she lost her fight for life at 1am the next morning.
According to a source at the hospital, the surgeon inadvertently injected the product into one of Ms Calixto’s arteries, resulting in the formation of a clot that would have ruptured in her heart.
Police yesterday arrested the nurse who assisted in the procedure, as well as Furtado’s girlfriend.
Furtado is considered a fugitive of justice after officers were unable to locate him after a judge issued an arrest warrant for the surgeon.
The woman heard good things about the procedure from friends who had gotten it themselves. One wonders whether those referrals were enough to dismiss any instinctual ‘red flags’ she may have had.
The nurse and the doctor’s girlfriend got arrested, but this internet hotshot didn’t mind throwing them under the bus.
How tragic that such an obviously beautiful woman died while getting what amounts to an elective cosmetic procedure.

Rules For Radical Christians is not a survival devotional designed to help the young Christian adult limp through life. Rather, it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of influence in an overtly non-Christian culture. Rules For Radical Christians gives the reader the keys to become strategically equipped to move into an anti-theistic environment and effectively influence it for the glory of God.
Here’s a brand new book on how to be a Warrior Chick by Regis Giles — daughter of our very own Doug Giles:
From the book:
Do I want this to be happening? Why is his hand on my waist? Is he really fondling my breasts? What do I do? Why is he in a bathrobe? Why is he taking off the bathrobe? God, I need to get out of here! I thought this was going to be professional.
No one, unless they’ve been in the same situation, can ever really understand the stress and self-doubt one goes through when sexual harassment occurs.
Regis Giles’ new book will teach you how to escape the world of #MeToo victim and become the #WarriorChick you were meant to be!
Think Miss Giles knows a thing or two about taking care of herself? You’d better believe it.
She and her sister Hannah were the very first two female Valente Bros black Belts. That’s a feather in your cap, for sure.

She’s also a world-class huntress.
