Plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Hochstein is embroiled in several legal messes.

Former patient Luz Del Alba filed a malpractice suit in June in Miami Circuit Court against Dr. Hochstein and his practice, Surgery Center of North Miami, alleging that a 2020 thigh lift and arm lift, which require liposuction, left her with “large open wounds” and “significant limitation” of the “range of motion” in her arms.
She also alleges she suffered “constant exquisite pain” and “infection.”
Meanwhile, Dr. Hochstein and his practice are also facing a suit for medical negligence filed in 2019 by Christine Wilson.

Wilson alleges that while having a breast augmentation, breast lift and liposuction, “a metal surgical needle,” was left in her body.

She claims to have endured “pain and suffering, incurred significant medical bills and expenses” and “extreme mental and emotional anguish,” according to court papers.
