Plastic surgeon Harley Street, dubbed the ‘Breast God’, is suing art dealer for defamation and harassment

An art dealer faces jail after being accused of harassment by a leading plastic surgeon.

Dr. Riccardo Frati is one of the UK’s leading cosmetic surgeons and has operated on numerous celebrities and models.

But dr. Frati – dubbed the “breast god” by fans – claims he has been the victim of a campaign of libel and harassment by disgruntled ex-patient, modern art dealer Karen Bowen-Carter.

The surgeon says Ms Bowen-Carter deliberately spread lies online, accusing him of “fraudulently” giving celebrity treatments at a discounted price in exchange for positive reviews.

Last year, Mrs. Bowen-Carter agreed not to contact him, his staff or patients, but Dr. Frati is now suing the 54-year-old for defamation, malicious lying and harassment at the Supreme Court.

She can now go to jail for contempt of court after Dr. Frati filed to have her sent to jail for continuing to contact patients of his, contrary to her promise.

Ms Bowen-Carter denies contempt of court and says the legal promises she made may not even be binding because she was suffering from crippling anxiety at the time she signed.

Dr. Frati is represented by attorney David Sherborne, who acted for Johnny Depp in his libel suit and Coleen Rooney in the so-called ‘Wagatha Christie’ trial.

In 2019, former Big Brother star Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace claimed to have received the largest implants allowed in the UK by the surgeon.

The following year, he appeared on Gemma Collins’ reality show Diva Forever and Ever, discussing plans for a reduction of her double breasts.

During a pre-trial hearing at the Supreme Court, Dr. Frati’s attorney, Mr. Sherborne, to Ms. Judge Collins Rice that he strenuously denies all allegations of giving cheap surgeries for good ratings.

Before she posted the allegedly defamatory review to Google in May last year, Ms Bowen-Carter – whom he operated on in November 2020 – had contacted him demanding a refund and ‘compensation’, he claimed.

She said if she didn’t receive the payments she would contact daytime TV shows to “expose” him, the attorney continued.

Soon after, she wrote comments online that the doctor said would be read as an allegation that he had “fraudulently operated on celebrities for half price in exchange for fake social media reviews.”

“It is not true that he has offered such cheap celebrity services for some review,” said Mr Sherborne.

“The defendant knew very well that was not true.”

Her goal when she posted to Google was to “do as much damage as possible” to his company and “effectively blackmail him into paying significant sums of money,” he added.

As part of his case, the doctor last year sought an injunction against Ms Bowen-Carter, which she settled by agreeing to legal ‘commitments’ not to contact him, his staff or patients.

Over the next year, however, she had “repeatedly contacted and harassed Plaintiff’s patients,” Mr Sherborne said.

“It was hoped that this would stop, but it didn’t and that led to the application,” he added.

Attorney William McBarnet said Ms Bowen-Carter would contest whether she breached the pledges at all.

And he said it was questionable whether they were legally binding in the first place, as there is evidence that she was suffering from anxiety and other mental health issues at the time she agreed.

The judge issued brief directions to continue the contempt case into the new year.

If Mrs Bowen-Carter of West Malling, Kent, is caught in contempt, she could face a two-year prison sentence.

A hearing in Dr. Frati’s libel suit is due in court later this month.
