The consumer may face the serious risk during the hair restoration surgery when it is performed by unlicensed personnel.
A consumer alert is issued by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery with a warning to the patients that unlicensed personnel for the hair restoration surgery are increasing day by day worldwide and hence, putting many patients at risk for the hair transplantation.
A number of patients are seeking the help to get rid of the risks that are caused by the mistakes done by untrained surgeons. The society is greatly encouraging the consumers to be aware of the following points while you are going for the hair restoration treatment in India:
Even the hair restoration technique is minimally invasive, yet it requires the medical expertise. The main important thing is the clinical decisions and the clinical knowledge that must be cleared during the procedure. For example, the diagnostic decisions and the thickness of the incisions must be made so that the patient may not feel uncomfortable. An appropriate dose of the anesthetic medication will ensure the safety of the patient.
The properly trained and the physicians with the license should only be considered as professionals in performing certain aspects of treatment:
- Preoperative diagnostic evaluation
- Proper consultation
- Surgery planning
- Surgery execution
- Management of medical issues
No doubt, laws related to the specific portions of the unlicensed personnel vary according to the country and state but the licensed surgeon is that who knows about the proper incision and excisions.
When the highly skilled surgeries are performed by unlicensed personnel then patients are definitely at risk for the misdiagnosis. The unnecessary performance and the ill-advised surgery can lead to the major medical problems.
