The obligation to provide patient education and documentation has a special significance in aesthetic plastic surgery. Purely aesthetic procedures must be evaluated in a different way to reconstructive operations that are medically necessary – a circumstance that we live up to in a very special way.
Multi-level advice and education must communicate the surgical techniques, as well as risks and the expected outcome in a plain and honest way. Sensible questions, such as those about possible complications and visible scars are not ignored here.
The patient education content in infoskop® on aesthetic plastic surgery gives a highly realistic picture with regard to the likelihood of success without scaremongering. At the same time, the automatic documentation, the central theme and the time recording function increase legal compliance, giving maximum security to both sides.
