Since 2012, the Swiss Society for Aesthetic Surgery has been comprised of physicians with certified (FMH) training in plastic reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. The members of this society have a special interest in aesthetic surgery, representing the majority of their surgical activity. The role of the Swiss Aesthetic Surgery Society is to ensure the continuing education of aesthetic surgery in Switzerland, to promote patient safety, to provide objective information and to maintain a level of excellence in aesthetic surgery in our country.
CHOOSE YOUR SURGEON
Unfortunately, we find that a large number of physicians in Switzerland perform cosmetic
surgical procedures without having completed the necessary training. From a legal point of view, this is still allowed for the time being, as any doctor who has a medical degree and has completed two years of postgraduate training can theoretically perform all procedures, provided that he or she feels capable of doing so. In view of this legal vacuum, it is essential to choose a doctor who has completed postgraduate training and holds the title of specialist in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.
Make sure that you are dealing with a real specialist in Plastic, Reconstructive and
The plastic surgeon you choose must inspire confidence in you.
The information gathered must seem clear and understandable to you.
The surgeon must talk to you about the techniques, the type of anesthesia, the risks and the possible complications.
The plastic surgeon must give you an estimate (it is mandatory!) and discuss it with you.
The systematic proposal of a reflection period and a second consultation before
proceeding to surgery is a guarantee of good professional ethics.
The plastic surgeon must give you an information document about your operation to read and have you sign an informed consent.
A second opinion may be useful in case of doubt.
