American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Advises Consumers to Avoid Unqualified Personnel Performing Cosmetic Procedures
Date:8/19/2013

e clinicians oversee the treatment and maintain medical records, spa-type centers may have limited or no full-time medical staff and may lack the experience or training to handle more than routine beauty services. Patients need assurances that a qualified and trained practitioner will perform their procedure appropriately, under sanitary conditions, and with product where the quality and source is known and FDA approved.

“Physicians can appropriately provide oversight for patient care in a variety of medical settings,” said Michael Edwards, MD, president-elect of the Aesthetic Society. “Our concern is that physician supervision in non-surgical cosmetic procedures may be inadequate or non-existent.”

Often the individuals performing these cosmetic medical treatments lack adequate training to safely perform the procedures, and do not spend the time or have the training to conduct an adequate informed consent consultation. It is important for patients to do their homework when choosing a physician, and while spas and salons are convenient for cosmetic medical treatments, convenience should never outrank safety and expertise when having a medical procedure.

The Society will continue to be a vocal advocate and work collaboratively with other medical societies, allied health professionals, and industry to raise awareness of the dangers of such procedures being performed by unqualified or untrained professionals.
