What was going to be a laser hair removal in the pubic area became a real ordeal. H. Diallo (who has asked us not to reveal her name to preserve her privacy) is a nurse and has lived in Palma de Mallorca for some years. Less than a month ago he attended the last session in a clinic in the Balearic Islands. “You can not even imagine the pain,” he tells EL ESPAÑOL. At the end of the aesthetic operation, she went to the hospital to work, but the pain corroded her in such a way that she asked her companions to tell her what was wrong. The unbearable pain was due to the abnormal power applied by the laser in the clinic. It had caused third-degree burns.
Your case is already in the hands of lawyers and the Association of the Patient Advocate (ADEPA). And it reaches those legal hands, precisely, in the month of April. It’s not by chance. Spring advances, leaving behind the winter and embossing the swimsuit, the bikini, the daiquiri and the rod in the pool. That is, summer and its tanned forms, toasted under the soft cream and the sun.
That is the best part, but in the previous months many give themselves up to the inevitable sacrifice of becoming, for a few weeks, asceticism and abstinence, in order to arrive in the best possible way to the sandbanks. Others opt for the short path, and pull down the street of aesthetic operations. Although the thing does not always go well.
There is one thing that defines this time of year as much as the color of flowers: spring is the star season of cosmetic surgery operations. This, historically, is like that. And April is usually the month in which the greatest number are concentrated according to the data of the Spanish Society of Plastic Surgery, according to the Association of the Patient’s Advocate and according to the estimates of five lawyers specialized in these matters consulted by EL ESPAÑOL- More than 50 % of total interventions are concentrated in the days of this month. This has, among others, a very specific consequence: that statistics of cases of errors and serious accidents perpetrated by unsuspecting or negligent surgeons in the bodies of their patients also shoot up.
The demand skyrockets, of course. And at the same time also the tragedies related to these beauty treatments. Apart from the plastic surgeons, these circumstances cause that there is another guild that these weeks are going through a mess and that the papers are accumulating on the table. They are the lawyers. They are busy these last weeks, assuming and opening one procedure after another.
Only in May and April, plastic surgery operations increase each year up to 30%. According to Dr. Vila Morente, of the Spanish Society of Plastic Surgery, this time turns out to be the best time to undergo this type of surgery. The postoperative of this type of surgeries are always prolonged. And of course, nobody wants to reach the lounger or the hammock with bandages and parts covered in the sun. Many want to reach the summer ready and that means spending these weeks in the operating room. But the thing often does not end well.
While the clinics are practicing the operations, the lawyers begin to roll up their sleeves with cases like the ones described below. The first ones are already starting to arrive.
