The Real Housewives of Miami star Lisa Hochstein’s husband, Dr. Leonard Hochstein, is embroiled in another medical malpractice lawsuit. Die-hard fans of the Housewives franchise may remember Lisa and Leonard during seasons 2 and 3 of the Bravo series. The couple had just gotten married when they first joined the show and were trying to have a family. Lisa was introduced as the typical Miami housewife, while Leonard was revealed to be one of the best plastic surgeons in the country and is known worldwide as the “Boob God.”
Prior to the most recent lawsuit, Leonard was entangled in several other legal woes earlier this month. His patients’ procedures took place from 2019 to 2021, and they are now seeking around $45,000 in damages all together. Neither Lisa nor Leonard have commented on the allegations or the lawsuits. However, it is likely they will be discussed soon. The accusations came out while Lisa was filming for the upcoming reboot of RHOM for Peacock.
In a new development reported by Page Six, Dr. Leonard is being sued again for medical malpractice by a different former patient, Jennifer Geci. On August 4, Jennifer filed a lawsuit that claims Leonard used an “improper surgical technique” while performing a thigh lift. She alleged that the plastic surgery, which the RHOM ladies get a lot of, left her with “injury in and around the groin and labia,” which caused “altered and deformed genitalia.” Jennifer also stated in the lawsuit that she “suffered disability and physical impairment” as well as “mental pain.” All of this pain caused Jennifer to seek additional medical help for the injuries she claims Leonard caused. She is asking for an excess of $50,000 in damages from the plastic surgeon. Page Six attempted to reach out to Lisa regarding the new development, but she has yet to respond.
Jennifer’s lawsuit is the third one filed this month against the plastic surgeon, who is married to Lisa. The first one was filed by former patient Luz Del Alba, who sued Leonard over her botched thigh and arm lift. The patient alleged she was left with “a large open wound” and limited movement in her arm. In addition, Leonard and his practice are also facing a lawsuit for medical negligence by Christine Wilson, who filed in 2019. Christine accused the Miami-based doctor of allegedly leaving “a metal surgical needle” in her body while he was performing a breast augmentation, breast lift and liposuction on her. Leonard has mentioned the lawsuits in the past, claiming that he was not legally allowed to speak on them. However, he did say has “been a surgeon for 31 years [and] up until this time I have never been sued for malpractice.”
Lisa and Leonard have not said much on the matter. However, it is likely fans will get to know more about the lawsuits in the upcoming reboot of The Real Housewives of Miami. Lisa is reportedly returning as a full-time housewife alongside Larsa Pippen, Alexia Echevarria and Adriana de Moura.
