It takes about 1 minute to read this article.

13 women who have undergone cosmetic surgery to remove facial sagging in nationwide cosmetic surgery, etc. have suffered strong pain on their face after surgery on the 23rd. Filed a suit in Tokyo District Court.

 Thirteen women in their XNUMXs and XNUMXs around the Kanto region filed a lawsuit.The complaint alleged that he underwent "face lift" in cosmetic surgery XNUMX-XNUMX, which uses a special thread to remove sagging skin, but suffered from complications such as pain and hair loss. "There was no explanation of the danger from the doctor in advance," he asked for payment of compensation.

 One of the plaintiffs who had a press conference after the complaint said, "I can't forgive it because the effect didn't last and I was suffering from headaches."

 "We have explained the possibility of complications in advance and are convinced. We will fight thoroughly in the proceedings."

Cosmetic surgery cases are difficult because of subjectivity issues.

Face lifts require large-scale surgery and advanced techniques to increase the effect, and of course, the risk increases.

This issue highlights physician skills, clear explanation of risks and benefits of prior informed consent and communication with patients.

I think that it is not an operation that should be performed easily by doctors with little experience at a low price.
