One Third Unhappy With Cosmetic Surgery Results Survey

Posted Feb 24 2011 10:30am

As many as one-third of cosmetic surgery operations are performed to correct earlier errors, writes the Sunday supplement of the Väli-Suomi newspaper group. The Finnish Patient Insurance Centre receives some 200 complaints annually relating to errors made in plastic surgery.

Surveys like these are difficult to interpret. Who is doing this surgery? Are they real plastic surgeons? I don’t see anywhere near that high an unhappy patient rate. Then again I don’t operate upon everyone who comes through the door and I am a real residency trained board-certified plastic surgeon.

Best Regards,
