Hollywood legend Dick Van Dyke is lashing out at a cosmetic surgeon to the stars who he claims botched his then fiancee's liposuction procedure, leaving her with permanent scars.
The 90-year-old actor appeared alongside wife Arlene Silver for an interview with Crime Watch Daily that will air on Monday, and Van Dyke did not hold back when asked how he felt when he saw his wife covered in sores and bleeding after she underwent a LipoFreeze at Dr Simon Ourian's Beverly Hills clinic Epione.
'When I finally saw the really horrible scars I blew my top. I became apoplectic,' said Van Dyke.
'I’m not a violent person, but when I walked into that room I was ready to punch that guy out.'
Silver then added that making the entire thing even worse was that she was also preparing for her February 2012 wedding to Van Dyke.
Her bleeding was so bad at one point that she was forced to wear a corset to not only 'compress everything', but also to 'guard [the wedding dress] from blood or anything oozing out' during a fitting.

Silver said in the interview that she should have never considered moving forward with any procedure in hindsight following her initial consultation.
'In retrospect, I now know this was not a good way to go into the procedure, but they have ... salespeople who they've guised as nurses ' said Silver of the staff at Epione.
She then added that she herself did not even meet Dr Ourian until the day of her procedure.
Epione explains the steps involved in the LipoFreeze procedure on their website, with the cost ranging from approximately $2,900-$4,900 per area of the body according to a post on Ourian's Instagram page.
The treatment starts with 'advanced cryolipolysis' being used to 'freeze fat cells', which in turn breaks down the cells into a form that the body can naturally remove.
After that, a gel applicator pad is placed on the skin of the targeted area and 'carefully controlled cooling is applied to the fat cells'.

That then causes the cells to 'crystalize and die', at which point they will begin to be metabolized by the body.
It is also notes that it can take weeks for patients to see noticeable results as the body gets to work on the crystallized cells.
Silver however said she did get some very noticeable results immediately after the procedure - and that she was not happy with them at all.
'The injection site blew up to like a golf ball size, looking like a blood blister, and it hurt really bad,' she said during the interview.
Van Dyke also made it clear that the main reason he and his wife were going public with their story almost five years later was because they believe people have a right to know about their medical professionals.
He said that he
