DORAL, Fla. (AP) — A Florida court has ordered that a doctor stop performing plastic surgery after an Illinois woman's death.

The Miami Herald reports Florida's First District Court of Appeal ordered Monday that 44-year-old Osakatukei "Osak" Omulepu must also have a board-certified physician present for any other medical procedures until it rules on the state's effort to stop him from practicing.

Miami-Dade County authorities say his patient, 30-year-old Lattia Baumeister, died June 1 of fat clots in her lung from liposuction and fat transfer surgery.

Omulepu's attorney, Monica Rodriguez, says he offered to work under a board-certified plastic surgeon's supervision in response to the court restricting his license.

Florida officials have tried three times since February 2016 to stop Omulepu from performing a self-declared specialty liposuction and fat transfer procedure.
