Celebrity plastic surgeon Randal Haworth accused of using drugs and watching porn during surgery

His celebrity clientele includes reality star Lisa Rinna and model CariDee English.

Celebrated Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Randal Haworth has been indicted for drug use and watching pornographic movies and violent videos whilst performing surgery, according to a report published by The Wrap. 

Haworth, a Beverly Hills resident plastic surgeon who has appeared on TV shows like “The Swan,” has been accused of drug use and watching pornographic movies and videos portraying beheadings, whilst performing surgeries.


Along with the aforementioned charges, Haworth has also been accused of 'regularly playing hardcore pornography and videos showing extreme and graphic violence, such as actual beheadings, on a monitor or in the background during some of his surgeries', according to the proposed amended complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.


A former patient of Haworth, Laura Day, had first filed a malpractice suit in January 2017 and has now claimed in the amended filing that the surgeon had failed to reveal to his patients that he was having issues with his vision, particularly with depth-perception, following his eye-tumor treatment.


According to the proposed amended complaint filed on 9th March in Los Angeles Superior Court, Haworth is accused of “regularly and unlawfully” using the painkiller Percocet, “including before and during his performance of surgical procedures.” The new complaint also stated  that he “regularly used other illicit drugs, such as cocaine and MDMA too."

Day went on to claim that she was left devastated after suffering injuries during a procedure performed by Haworth in 2015. In her lawsuit, Day asserted that she was mentally impaired for months after the surgery that also left her permanently disfigured.

But that wasn't all—Haworth is also put on trial for falsifying patient consent forms in order to keep his medical accreditation along with routinely bullying patients who complained about his work.

Day’s lawyer, Chris Rudd further asserted that he was in the midst of what he thought was a common malpractice suit over a bungled procedure when it was later discovered that Haworth’s former surgical assistant and his consultant had also come forward with accusations of misconduct that were included in the proposed amended complaint.

But Haworth denied all the allegations, stating that the accusations levied against him are 'preposterous'. 

“The might as well say that I killed JonBenét Ramsey,” Haworth told 'TheWrap'. He declined to elaborate further on the specific accusations, except to say, “The truth will eventually prevail.”

Haworth gained nationwide popularity after he worked with 'Real Housewives of Beverly Hills' star Lisa Rinna and former 'America's Next Top Model' contestant CariDee English.

He was also cast as one of the resident surgeons on “The Swan,” a 2004 reality show by Fox that documented 16 womens jo'urney who underwent plastic surgery and counseling.

However, the show was taken off-air after it was slammed for normalizing cosmetic surgery, along with a steady dip in ratings. Post his appearance on 'The Swan', Haworth also appeared as an expert on the CBS show 'The Doctors.'

Rudd told The Wrap that he’ll be “seeking very substantial damages for her injuries plus punitive damages for the fraud and intentional torts,” as well as restitution and an injunction.
