Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Can Someone else Perform Your Surgery Other Than the Doctor You Paid For?
I was told that sometimes Certified Plastic Surgeons allow students or trainee to perform the surgery. Is this true and if so isn't the patient supposed to ok it. I know in teaching hospitals this does happen but the patients knows. Can it also happen in private practice without the patients concent? If yes, How can I protect myself from that? Also, If the papers you sign the morning of surgery says other personel may be used during your surgery what does that mean. Haven't had sugery yet.
Cosmetic surgery in an accredited private surgical suite is done by your surgeon only.
