Doctor Sued for Posting Breast Enhancement Photos

KIRKWOOD, Mo. (AP) — A St. Louis-area doctor is facing lawsuits from 10 women claiming she put before-and-after pictures of their breast augmentation surgeries on her website.

The suits in federal court in St. Louis accuse Kirkwood Dr. Michele Koo of negligence for displaying pictures linked to the names of the women. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that in most cases, the images showed no faces and were authorized by patients who expected their names to remain confidential.

Long Island, N.Y.-based MedNet Technologies Inc. ran Koo’s website, and Koo’s lawyers blame MedNet. Attorney Jonathan Ries says Koo had no intention of linking pictures and names.

But MedNet blames Koo, saying it did not post, control or influence the content of the website.
