Due to to the great misinformation that happens on social networks, where there are different professionals non-doctors offer cosmetic treatments with the risks that this produces in the general population, The Argentine Society of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery (SACPER), together with the Argentine Society of Dermatology (SAD), have decided to initiate a common communication channel for the population.
The goal is be able to advise and advise on how to choose a suitable professional, with adequate preparation for perform cosmetic treatmentsEither minor office procedures or cosmetic surgery.
A medical act involves a professional intervention by medication, whether for external, oral or injectable use, surgical procedures or the use of devices to generate changes in the patient’s body. These well-indicated procedures generate a benefit for aesthetics, taking care of the patient’s health.
In interventions involving the use of injections or any type of local or oral medication, this should be provided by specialist doctors, plastic surgeons or dermatologists who have extensive knowledge of the skin, how it works and its changes.. There are in our population a large number of beauty centers without trained medical staff, added to the lack of health control in terms of their empowerment.
More and more patients come to these centers seduced by misleading advertising, promises of immediate results, without risk and at a low cost. Performing these treatments by non-medical personnel who do not have adequate training or knowledge to treat possible side effects endangers patient safety., in many cases leaving consequences very difficult to repair. Even to death.
From the Argentine Society of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery (SACPER) and the Argentine Society of Dermatology (SAD), we want to advise the entire population when selecting a competent professional. For this, we launched the #ParecerMedicoNoEsSerMedico campaign on social networks, reaffirming the concepts of safety, training and trajectory. Orienting citizens to consult our websites, professionals who meet the standards required by the Ministry of Health of the Nation, in terms of specialization, updating and recertification, because in order to belong to these companies these requirements must be met.
