The risks of aesthetic procedures and their possible legal consequences

Instant access to information has become a key feature of today’s times. Through data sharing via social networks and the vast amount of information available on the internet, people are getting more and more knowledge before performing any activity.

A good example of this reality is the clients who seek aesthetic clinics in order to perform the most diverse procedures. Information on the efficiency and quality of treatments and also on consumer rights is readily available for consultation.

Thus, it is essential that companies operating in the area can also rely on legal certainty with respect to these demands. Although aesthetic procedures are intended to enhance beauty, results may vary and aesthetic clinics need to know how to position themselves legally.

In addition, it is important to keep in mind that the Courts understand that the obligation of the aesthetic professional, whether medical or not, is a result rather than a means. That is, for the jurisprudential understanding, the aesthetic professional has an obligation to provide the patient with the result desired by him or as close as possible.
