The 56-year-old supermodel claimed a body sculpting procedure cause a rare adverse condition in which her fat deposits increased, rather than decreasing as usual.
Any medical procedure can cause side effects so it is very important before any procedure is commenced for a full discussion takes placed between the person having the procedure and those responsible for doing the procedure takes place and that I consent form is signed.
However, on the consent form how does the patient know if all information has been disclosed to them, this is a very reliance on trust.
On this occasion it seems to appear that this full trust was lacking, but now it seems a very expensive and lengthy court case could be required.
More needs to be put in place to cover the interests of all involved, and expressly those of the patient. So is a verbal discussion fully acceptable, perhaps all of these consultations need to be visually recorded with all parties having copies to safeguard all concerned.
