Dario Moscoso Accused of Impersonating Plastic Surgeon, Sexually Assaulting Women
Last Update: 7/13/2020
An employee of Del Mar Cosmetic Contouring Surgery Center in San Diego has been accused of impersonating a plastic surgeon and groping patients at the center. 67-year-old Dario Moscoso faces nine felony and misdemeanor counts, including sexual battery, treating the sick/afflicted without a certificate, and use of terms and letters falsely indicating right to practice medicine.
Police say that Moscoso is employed at Del Mar Cosmetic Contouring Surgery Center but not as a plastic surgeon. Despite this fact, he allegedly performed procedures like the “Brazilian butt lift” and breast augmentation without a license to practice medicine. He is accused of inappropriately touching a woman’s breasts and buttocks while posing as a surgeon in November 2017.
The District Attorney’s office believes there may be other women who were sexually assaulted by Moscoso while he was posing as a plastic surgeon. Others have been encouraged to come forward.
