Plastic Surgeon Charged in Death of Wife

June 18, 2024

A plastic surgeon was led away in handcuffs following the death of his wife. Dr. Ben Brown's wife was scheduled to have liposuction on her arms, lip injections and an "ear adjustment" at his Florida office. While on the operating table, authorities say his 33-year-old wife began "twitching" and "her vision started to blur," which are early signs of "lidocaine toxicity." She died in the hospital a week later. Brown was charged with manslaughter by culpable negligence. He has been released after posting a $50,000 bond.
