The action comes nearly two years after the Medical Board of California sought to revoke or suspend the license of plastic surgeon Jan Adams because of multiple alcohol-related convictions, the Los Angeles Times reported Friday.
Adams came under scrutiny after Donda West, 58, died one day after he performed numerous surgical procedures on her in his Brentwood-area office in 2007.
The coroner's office ruled West "died from some pre-existing coronary artery disease and multiple postoperative factors following surgery," including pain-control medication and the tight bandaging of her chest that may have limited breathing.
Adams had three convictions for alcohol-related offenses from 2003-06, the Times said.
Under state law, he can reapply for his license in three years but will have to prove he has conquered his drinking problem.
