Life in plastic, Gaddafi thinks it's fantastic! Libyan leader loved "late night plastic surgery"

Late Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi had a penchant for late-night cosmetic surgery, his plastic surgeon has revealed in a BBC documentary due to be aired on Monday night.
The surgeon, who Gaddafi shared with Italy’s Silvio Berlusconi, also told the documentary that the despot preferred the enhancements to be done without anesthetic.
‘He wanted lipo filling because a desert man gets bad skin and we did the hair implant too,’ explained Dr. Liacya Ribeiro, a breast augmentation specialist based in Rio de Janeiro, according to exerts of the documentary, reported by The Daily Mail.
‘The operation was performed with local anesthetic only. No sedation.’ He added: ‘He [Qaddafi] was afraid that somebody might kill him.’
The documentary entitled “Mad Dog – Gaddafi’s Secret World” has exposed the peculiar lifestyle enjoyed by the late dictator.
It has revealed that Gaddafi kept male and female sex slaves – some as young as 14 – in his palaces.
Young boys and girls would be selected by Gaddafi in his many talks in schools and universities, and then abducted by his bodyguards and taken to a secret location hidden within Tripoli University - or one of his many palaces. After arriving, they would be forced to watch pornography before their encounter with the dictator.
A former aide to Gaddafi called the dictator “terribly sexually deviant.”
“He had his own boys. They used to be called the ‘services group.’ All of them were boys and bodyguards … a harem for his pleasure,” said Nuri al-Mismari, Gaddafi’s former chief of protocol, who served the dictator for 40 years.
Enemies kept ‘in freezers’
Another eyewitness said that the bodies of Gaddafi’s enemies would be kept in a freezer for his viewing.
Bahia Kikhia, the widow of Libya’s former foreign minister and ambassador to the United Nations - who had fallen out of favor with Gaddafi – told the documentary that after her husband had gone missing, she confronted the dictator, who told her that he was being kept alive.
But after the 2011 revolution which overthrew Gaddafi, her husband’s body was found in a freezer.
“He liked to keep his victims in the refrigerators to look at them now and again,” said Bahia.
