Lebanese plastic surgeon attacks president of plastic surgery society on board flight to Dubai

DUBAI: A Lebanese plastic surgeon attacked the president of the Lebanese Society of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery aboard a flight from Beirut to Dubai on Saturday, national news channel LBC reported.
Famous cosmetic surgeon, Nader Saab, physically and verbally attacked Dr. Elie Abdelhak over a report submitted by the society based on the death of one of Saab’s patients.
According to witnesses aboard the flight who spoke to local media, “Saab screamed in the face of Abdulhak, insulted, and beat him, while Abdulhak did not react before Saab returned to his place.”
Abdulhak spoke to Lebanese daily An-Nahar saying: “After the flight attendant handed out breakfast, Saab came and told me: ‘I thank you for the report you made about the death of Al-Qassab,’ to which I replied, ‘I simply did my duty as president of the surgery and beauty association and that’s what I know.’”
“Afterwards, Saab told me ‘I will show you what I will do’ and proceeded to punch me twice in the face. I kept calm in order not to make matters worse and told him to go back to his place,” the doctor added.
Afterwards, Saab issued a statement saying that Abdelhak first came forward and cursed him and his assistant.
Saab was charged with negligence after Farah Al-Qassab died while undergoing liposuction surgery in the cosmetic surgeon’s clinic.
It was not suggested in local reports whether or not the airline or crew got involved in the incident.

Meghan Markle’s father appeals to British queen over rift with daughter

  • Meghan’s father said he had not had contact with his daughter for months and repeated text messages to Meghan had gone unanswered
  • Kensington Palace did not immediately comment on the interview

LONDON: Meghan Markle’s father directly appealed to Britain’s Queen Elizabeth on Monday to intercede and end his estrangement from his daughter, the wife of Prince Harry.
Former US actress Meghan, now the Duchess of Sussex, married Harry, the queen’s grandson and sixth-in-line to the throne, in a glittering ceremony at Windsor Castle in May.
But the immediate build-up to the wedding was overshadowed by her father, Thomas, a former lighting director for US TV soaps and sitcoms, who pulled out days beforehand after undergoing heart surgery.
Meghan’s father said he had not had contact with his daughter for months and repeated text messages to Meghan had gone unanswered.
When asked what message he had for Queen Elizabeth, 92, Thomas Markle said: “I would appreciate anything she can do and I would think that she would want to resolve the family problems.”
“All families, royal or otherwise, are the same and they should all be together certainly around the holidays,” Markle added.
Markle said that Meghan, 37, had not sent him a Christmas card but that he was hopeful that they could at some time build their relationship.
“Please reach out to me,” he said of Meghan. “I love my daughter very much and she has to know that... Just send me a text.”
“All I can say is that I’m here she knows it and I’ve reached out to her and I need her to reach back to me. I love her very much,” Markle said. “This can’t continue forever.”
Harry, 34, and Meghan are expecting their first child in the spring of 2019.
“I am certainly hoping that everything goes well and that they produce a beautiful baby and I’ll get to see a little Meghan or a little Harry — that would be very nice and I look forward to that happening,” Markle said.
“I think she’ll make a great Mom.”
Markle dismissed reports that Meghan could at times be rude. She was, he said, very polite as she had been raised on Hollywood stages.
When asked if she was a social climber, her father said: “She’s always been a very controlling person and that’s part of her nature but she has never been rude.”
Kensington Palace did not immediately comment on the interview.
