TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (Legal
Newsline) — Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi announced Oct. 26 that Vanity
Cosmetic Surgery Inc. will settle allegations related to its refund and
Vanity Cosmetic Surgery does
business as Vanidades Cosmetic Surgery, West Dade Surgery Center Inc., Broward
Cosmetic Surgery Inc., Encore Plastic Surgery Inc., The Center for Cosmetic
Surgery Inc., Florida Aesthetic Surgery Center Inc., Cosmetics Miami Inc., BC
Surgical Center Inc., Ismael Labrador and Aimee De La Rosa.
According to Bondi’s office,
Vanity Cosmetic Surgery deceived consumers who sought refunds. The company
allegedly failed to clearly and conspicuously disclose all material terms and
conditions of transactions, failed to honor its refund policy, failed to honor
consumer refund requests, and failed to issue promised refunds.
Vanity Cosmetic Surgery did
not admit liability but voluntarily entered an Assurance of Voluntary
Compliance. As per the settlement, the company will clearly and conspicuously
disclose all transaction terms, stop making claims that its products are free
if they are not, and ensure all of its marketing materials are accurate.
