Cosmetic surgeon To Chun-fung has sued Next Magazine and its editor-in-chief for an allegedly defamatory article it ran this summer. Dr To's writ, filed in the High Court this week, described him as a 'reputable medical practitioner with not less than 28 years of experience'. The alleged defamation cannot be published. Several months ago Dr To tried to block a Medical Council disciplinary inquiry into professional misconduct allegations lodged against him.
