A cosmetic surgeon faces a number of malpractice lawsuits after an investigation uncovered her operating practices included making rap music videos while her patients lay on the operating table.
A joint investigation by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and ABC-affiliate WSB-TV found Dr. Windell Davis-Boutte currently has five malpractice settlements, four pending lawsuits, and more than 20 videos previously posted on YouTube showing her singing and dancing over seemingly unconscious and exposed patients.
In one of the videos, Boutte raps to O.T. Genasis’ “Cut It” while appearing to slice open a patient’s stomach. In another, Boutte does a cosmetic surgery-style remix of Migos’ “Bad and Boujee” under her “Dr. Booty Baby” moniker.
“My patients are bad and boujee/ Building up fat in the booty/ My patients are snatched with big booties/ We got tummy tucks and BBLs too,” Boutte raps.
Elsewhere, Boutte sings and dances to Jennifer Lopez’s “Booty,” Flo Rida’s “Get Low,” and T.I.’s “Whatever You Like.” In some of the videos, Boutte’s assistants feature as back-up dancers while in others, she waves syringes and uses operating equipment as props.
Boutte’s fixation with making music videos while operating on patients doesn’t appear to be the worst of her practices either. There are currently four pending lawsuits against the surgeon.
In a 2016 case, a patient of Boutte’s suffered permanent brain damage following an eight-hour procedure at her practice in Lilburn, Georgia. Icilma Cornelius saw Boutte for a liposuction and a panniculectomy. She was not intubated, and did not receive general anesthesia, according to a lawsuit in the case. Cornelius went into cardiac arrest while Boutte was sewing her tummy tuck incision, and will now need care for the rest of her life.
Boutte’s office in Gwinnett County — Premiére Aesthetic Center — is not a licensed surgery center, according to the joint investigation by AJC and WSB-TV.
