Plastic Surgery: Q&AAsk a Question
Is It Normal to Sign a Waiver Before Plastic Surgery?
My doctor included a waiver form in my pre-op packet that forces me to use arbitration to resolve any future disagreements. Basically, I'm being asked to waive my right to a jury or judgement in court. Is this common practice for plastic surgeons? Or is this a white flag -- a warning that I should find another doctor?
