TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona authorities are trying to identify possible victims of illegal cosmetic surgery procedures performed in the Tucson area.

That word comes from the Attorney General's Office in the wake of the arrest of a Tucson man who is accused of performing fat-removing liposuctions illegally out of his home.

The office says 51-year-old Gustavo Felix Nunez is not a physician and is not licensed in Arizona to practice medicine.

The office says authorities are seeking people who have undergone cosmetic surgery at Nunez's home on the 8600 block of North Bobby Jones Drive, at an industrial warehouse located at 1656 N. 15th Ave. or other locations.

According to the office, the procedures could include liposuctions, lip injections, Botox injections, and other similar cosmetic procedures and plastic surgeries.
