He won't be posting more any time soon.

A plastic surgeon in Australia has been banned from performing procedures and is not allowed to practice unsupervised after he allegedly stopped a surgery to make a TikTok video.

Dr. Daniel Aronov, who has 13 million followers, has been banned from carrying out any kind of surgical procedure in Australia by the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency after complaints were made by several patients.

His TikTok videos show the doctor dancing but also consist of him performing procedures on patients.

One patient, Jackie, says that she was left in pain and a lump in her chin after she went to him for a facelift, a procedure he later shared on TikTok.

Speaking to Australian news show A Current Affair, she said: "He's in the middle of surgery and he is stopping, checking the video, then saying no I don't want that, cut that out, do it again.

"The fact that AHPRA has been incentivised to actually do something after years of complaints, I don't know whether to laugh or cry. It's surreal to me."

Another woman claims that he shared a video of her during surgery without her consent, according to 9Now.

Sharing a text between her and Aronov, he allegedly offer to send her a staple remover so she could remove her own staples from her cheek at home.

Another patient claimed that he was left with a lump on his stomach after Aronov performed a liposuction procedure.

The AHPRA has requested that Aronov must delete all surgery content from his TikTok account and must not post about procedures again in the future.

He has since been told he can now only treat patients as a general practitioner but under strict supervision.

Dr Aronov told A Current Affair via a lawyer: "It would be inappropriate for me to comment on any matters that are currently the subject of any AHPRA inquiry."
