Panama - Warning on plastic surgery abroad

(MENAFN- Newsroom Panama)

With two Panamanians“fighting for their lives” in health institutions in the country, as a result of complications from plastic surgeries performed abroad and an investigation underway by prosecutors into the recent deaths of two women who also underwent procedures outside the country the Panamanian Association of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (Apcper), has issued a warning.

'Plastic surgery procedures should only be performed by a qualified and certified plastic surgeon, with experience in the procedure to be performed and in a hospital or clinic certified by the Ministry of Health.'

Plastic surgery, including cosmetic procedures, should not be considered lightly or trivially. These are surgeries and procedures that require a 'high degree of training,' usually six years or more after medical school.

 The association emphasized that it is not only the surgery that is important, but also the preoperative evaluation with the plastic surgeon and the subsequent follow-up.

Misleading promotions

Finally, a call is made to the population not to get carried away by misleading promotions, especially those that offer to travel abroad with all-inclusive plans. On the contrary, it is requested to investigate the professional who will provide the service. 'Failure to do so can endanger your life,' stresses the group.
