Surgeon Busted For Using Human Fat to Fuel Cars

By M Dee Dubroff     Jan 7, 2009 in Lifestyle
“Lipo- diesel” a creation of Dr. Craig Allan Bittner, a former Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, may be environmentally friendly, but many of his patients might not agree. Read all about this man who felt himself above the law.
According to news sources, Dr. Craig Alan Bittner is in deep doo doo with the law because he fueled his Ford SUV and his girlfriend's Lincoln Navigator with human fat sucked from his patients. California state law forbids the use of human medical waste to power vehicles. The not so good doctor had this to say and if he seems full of what uses to fuel his car, it is not an illusion:
The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel, and I have more fat than I can use. Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly, but they get to take part in saving the earth."
Bittner wrote this on his now defunct website on He left out the fact that his patients might not have been such willing participants, and an attorney for three of the patients suing Bittner says his assistant and girlfriend removed more fat than necessary, presumably to use it for making the fuel. The lawyer further claims that the patients were disfigured because of it. Neither the doctor’s girlfriend nor the assistant had medical licenses either.
Bittner's practice, Beverly Hills Liposculpture, closed in November and the rumor is that he moved to South America to do volunteer work at a clinic.
Well, doc, maybe you’ll try to live off the fat of the land instead of the fat of the people and here’s hoping that when they find you, those you harmed will cry gleefully:
“Let him eat fat!”
