The plastic surgeons at Duinbergen Clinic in Belgium recommend anyone contemplating an aesthetic treatment to ask themselves a series of questions. Are you sure that who is treating you is a physician and do you know their
qualifications? Are they trained to carry out the procedure you are considering? Are you well informed about the process and any risks? “A lot has been written about aesthetic medical treatments. We appreciate the attention for our profession. But unfortunately a lot of media attention is put on things that can go wrong and the consequences for patients. This can be confusing for patients,” explains plastic surgeon Dr. Ivar van Heijningen.
