In the podcast, Elena Currie talks about a recent Aesthetic MET survey that looked at habits among the aesthetics industry, highlighting real complications encountered in aesthetic medicine with the aim to help normalise some of the adverse events that will realistically occur as part of a practitioner’s career.
Elena explains how the survey provides an insight into complications that are realistically relevant to (and experienced by) peers. For example, the survey found that 26% of practitioners have experienced vascular occlusion – an adverse reaction that attracts a substantial amount of fear, considering it can be treated swiftly when recognised. In reality, only about 4% of vascular occlusions lead to necrosis.
The survey discussion aims to provide a snapshot of what adverse reactions are commonly experienced and how well they are handled, and to lessen practitioners’ uncertainty around adverse events.
The podcast further discusses how the results of the survey can help improve safety standards in aesthetic medicine, and explores some of the specific reactions most commonly encountered by practitioners, including inflammatory reactions.
Elena also shares a stand-out complex case analysis.
