DENVER (AP) - A Denver surgical assistant who posed as a plastic surgeon and performed face-lifts, tummy tucks and other medical procedures with limited, if any, anesthesia has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Carlos Fernandez was sentenced Friday after previously pleading guilty to second-degree assault, criminal impersonation and practicing medicine without a license. He was ordered to pay more than $189,000 in restitution.

Prosecutors say the 37-year-old claimed to be a licensed doctor since at least January 2015, performing procedures at the Hernandez Fernandez Clinic. The case involved more than 50 victims.
