- +

Unlicensed cosmetic 'doctor' Thanat Natveerakul, 24, who is known as Dr Pop, has confessed to police that he injected a filler material into 33-year-old Athitiya Eiamyai's buttocks that caused her to collapse into a deep coma. 

Mr Thanat, 24, turned himself in to police at the Children and Women Protection Sub-Division last night.

He admitted he was not licensed to perform the procedure but said he used to work as an assistant at a skin clinic and was tasked with giving injections. After gaining experience, he  resigned and started administering to his own clients,  who came to him by word-of-mouth.
