Office-Based Cosmetic Procedures and Techniques: Office-Based Cosmetic Procedures and Techniques
Plastic Surgery E-Book. Geoffrey C Gurtner. Besides adequate training, one should be mindful of the minimum requirements necessary for providing cosmetic treatments, including the cost of equipment and the space needed for storage, particularly for lasers. Obtaining medical malpractice coverage for the desired procedures is also an important consideration and, for some, may increase premiums.
As with any medical procedure, there are associated complications. Moreover, patients undergoing elective cosmetic procedures typically have less tolerance for complications. Some may argue that cosmetic procedures are outside the core scope of family medicine and that they should be exclusively the domain of other specialties such as dermatology and plastic surgery.
As with any medical procedure, cosmetic treatments vary in their complexity and risks and should be performed based on the physician's training and experience; referral to a specialist should be offered when appropriate. Another concern is that time dedicated to cosmetic procedures takes away from traditional family medicine care, such as prevention and management of chronic disease. The individual physician must decide how to allocate his or her time. However, it is unlikely that many family physicians will shift the focus of their practice exclusively to concentrate on aesthetic medicine.
