Reports of troubles and accidents of successive cosmetic surgery

Complaints and troubles related to cosmetic surgery that were not previously publicized have recently become widely covered in the media.Unlike medical malpractice, there are many problems caused by unfair claims for treatment costs.This is what has been reported recently.There has been a series of troubles involving medical institutions that have entered into unfair credit agreements for hair removal and breast implants.The Installment Sales Act allows customers to default on payments to credit sales companies if there is a defect in the product or service, but this appears to be because it does not apply to medical practices.On the XNUMXth, lawyers will conduct their first dedicated ``XNUMX number for high-cost cosmetic medical treatment''. ``I ordered phimosis surgery because it was advertised as XNUMX yen, but at the time of the surgery I was told that it would cost XNUMX to XNUMX million yen, and a credit contract was already prepared.'' ``I saw the advertisement saying XNUMX yen. When I consulted about double eyelid surgery at a clinic, the patient was persuaded for two hours to sign a contract for XNUMX million yen, and after the surgery, my eyelids were swollen.'' The Daini Tokyo Bar Association's Consumer Consultation Service receives such medical loan consultation calls every month. It takes XNUMX-XNUMX bottles.Similar calls are also being received at medical consultation centers.According to the National Consumer Affairs Center of Japan, there were XNUMX complaints and consultations regarding aesthetic medicine in fiscal XNUMX, an increase of XNUMX times over three years.Contracts and cancellations accounted for nearly XNUMX% of the total.When it comes to beauty salons, profit-oriented salons that deviate from their core business end up damaging the industry's image, and the same goes for cosmetic surgery.It is also necessary to thoroughly drain the pus to cleanse the industry.I would like the government to crack down on it strictly.
