Experts from the Patient Advocate Association say that plastic surgery is not among the most demanded sectors. However, it does have many dissatisfied. One might wonder what space exists between disappointment and harm.

How far can the surgeon be at fault for the poor result of an intervention and how far is informed knowledge of the results, both good and bad, that can be obtained using the scalpel. Since 2012 one thing seems clear: what cannot be. In other words, the Supreme Court has already ratified the impossibility of cosmetic surgery to achieve concrete results. And what cannot be achieved cannot be promised.

Hence the fight to claim or not an unsatisfactory result. Because let's say it loud and clear: in plastic surgery, there is a great professionalism gap. Professional intrusion and low-cost fashion, which also reaches medicine, make examples of bad surgeries have soared in recent times. From the sector, they explain that there is also a problem around the high subjective component related to ideals of beauty with which a person enters an operating room and that, on many occasions, does not conform to a realistic result.

Hence, jurisprudence considers that we are dealing with the medicine of a satisfactory, not curative nature.

Anyone who has entered an operating room for any type of intervention knows that a paper called informed consent must be signed. This includes the most common complications and risks in a specific surgery or treatment, but not all. Whoever makes the law cheats, as these documents are prepared by specialized Medical Societies and try to collect as much as possible, they always include a clause of other possible more rare complications, which, not because they are rare, means that they do not occur.

Cosmetic surgery must be faced. So, as a first measure to avoid malpractice, it must be requested if they did not offer it. It is mandatory, and no treatment or intervention can be performed without subscribing to it. It is recommended that the patient request a copy of it. You can also request one of your entire medical histories. At the same time, you must provide any document related to diseases that are unknown by the doctor or allergies. Your life may depend on it.
