The newspaper Parisian This Wednesday published a column signed by 200 cosmetic surgeons pointing out the dangers of free hyaluronic acid sales.
In recent months, cosmetic doctors and surgeons, such as labs, have regularly spoken out to warn of the risks and excesses they have increasingly noticed in their practice over the past three years. “We heal patients with disasters, from whom we had to cut off a piece of a lip or a nose. Or others in whom we had to remove the skin from the forehead or the nose because there was necrosis,” warned Dr. Adele Luafi in M6’s “Zone Interdite” report. The president of the National Society of Cosmetic Surgery today signed a forum that published Parisian 199 members of the profession joined this Wednesday, March 29. “Given the seriousness of this illegal practice, we plastic surgeons are asking that the sale of hyaluronic acid and other injectable fillers be monitored and that they be supplied only to qualified physicians.”

Risks of sepsis and gangrene
In the text, the signatories indeed emphasize that “hundreds of injectors, not doctors, carry out illegal actions against the population, particularly the youngest and most vulnerable classes, with great publicity on social networks.” There are serious risks: sepsis, gangrene and hospitalizations in intensive care units, which include the life expectancy of young patients. “Such complications have never been found in forty years of practice in France.” It’s an alarming revelation that the National Society for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (SNCPRE) wants to hear from both authorities and the general public to protect patients.
Social media is partly responsible for these significant excesses. They have truly made possible the democratization of surgery and aesthetic medicine. And opened the market to new customers, younger and therefore more vulnerable, as the forum notes. Because that’s where the shoe fits. Seeing it as an easy target, many people have jumped into the injection business without training, taking advantage of the free availability of hyaluronic acid sales. Even “injection nights” have popped up, where every guest is entitled to a treat, like a simple Tupperware get-together. In its dedicated report, the program “Zone Interdite” took its camera to “secret offices” where “wild” injections are performed by “aestheticians” at half the price of the average price of really qualified doctors. However, the price may be much heavier in the long run.
