TUCSON, Ariz. – Authorities are seeking the public's assistance to identify victims of a Tucson man suspected of illegally performing cosmetic surgeries.

Gustavo Felix Nunez, 51, was arrested over the weekend and booked into jail on suspicion of two counts of practicing medicine without a license.

Authorities said Nunez has been performing cosmetic surgical procedures in Tucson, as well as other states and countries.

In Tucson, these procedures may have taken place at an industrial warehouse located at 1656 N. 15th Ave., his residence in the 8600 block of North Bobby Jones Drive near the Omni Tucson National Golf Resort, or other locations.

The procedures included liposuctions, lip injections, Botox injections, and other similar cosmetic procedures and plastic surgeries.

Officials said Nunez is not a doctor and does not have any licensing in the state of Arizona to practice medicine.

Anyone who has had any medical procedure conducted by Nunez is encouraged to consult with a currently licensed and certified medical doctor to review the safety of the procedure.

The Office of the Arizona Attorney General, the Drug Enforcement Agency and Pima County Sheriff's Department are working together to identify possible victims.

Those who believe they may have been patients of Nunez are encouraged to contact law enforcement. Victims also may be eligible for assistance through the Attorney General's Office of Victim Services.

If you have information regarding Nunez, or believe you have been a patient of his, contact DEA Special Agents Adam Nobbley or Jonathan Shankweiler at 520-573-5500 or Assistant Attorney General Josh Moser or Special Assistant Attorney General Jordan Emerson at 520-628-6504.
