Oprah finally comments on plastic surgery death

After nearly two weeks of silence, Oprah Winfrey has finally responded to requests for comment on Dr. Jan Adams and why she promoted him on her show when he is not board-certified in plastic surgery. Adams was featured on Oprah in 2003 with other cosmetic surgeons. Investigations has revealed that Adams has a history of DUIs and malpractice suits, among other things. A rep for Oprah says, "Dr. Jan Adams appeared as a guest on the Oprah show just once, in 2003, as the host of the Discovery Health Channel series, Plastic Surgery Before and After. The show he appeared on focused on various television series that highlighted trends in cosmetic surgery. Since he was booked as a guest commentator on the subject of medical television, not in his capacity as a surgeon, and since we did not promote him as a cosmetic surgeon, there was no reason to do a background check on him. We have removed all references to him from our website." Adams performed several cosmetic procedures on Kanye West's mother the day before she died. He told TMZ that he "did nothing wrong."
