Our Charter :
The good practice charter in plastic surgery in the framework of the "Medical Tourism”.
What is the aim of this charter ?
Nowadays, we experience an important development of the "medical tourism" in Tunisia. This phenomenon that goes beyond an effect of fashion permits a "democratization" of plastic surgery for the people who couldn’t afford to reach their change desires.
The excellent quality-price ratio of plastic surgery in Tunisia has attracted more and more patients along with the media.
This quality is the result of the professionalism of the surgeons who have been the pioneers of this concept.
Before the increase of the number of the companies that are mediators between the tunisian surgeons and people seeking plastic surgeries at a better cost in Tunisia, it seems crucial to protect the patients against any potential violation of the clinic rules of good practices.
Aesthetic Tunisia is an instigator of this charter that aims at protecting the patients and perpetuating this offer of plastic surgery intended for patients who are non-resident in Tunisia.
The Charter :
The "medical tourist" is the person who is non-resident in Tunisia, he decides to come to undergo an act of surgery in a Tunisian establishment of care. This person is a patient.
The surgeon is a doctor of medicine specializing in surgery and having a proven experience in the field of plastic surgery.
The surgeon is registered in the Tunisian Board of physicians.
His responsibility in the surgical act throughout the operations oriented for the "medical tourism" is defined in the articles of this charter.
The clinic is the place where the surgeon operates. Its responsibility in the “medical tourism” is defined in the articles of this charter.
The companies specializing in the "medical tourism" are mediators between the surgeons or the surgical clinics and the patients. They are specialized service beneficiaries with responsibilities defined in the articles of this charter.
The patient is responsible for his demand which must be expressed clearly and with as many details as possible. It is therefore recommended to the patient to multiply the sources of information about what he wants to achieve through a plastic surgery operation.
He must imperatively know who his surgeon is before the operation day.
He gives his surgeon and the medical staff in charge all the details about his medical antecedents or of his chronic pathologies in order to avoid supplementary risks.
If the medical staff accepts the patient's file for a surgical intervention, the patient will then give his clear consent to be operated on in agreement with his surgeon.
The surgeon is a doctor in medicine registered in the Tunisian Board of physicians.
He is titular of diplomas of specialties and exercises in his field of expertise.
He has taken out a professional insurance.
He is responsible for the diagnosis and the indication satisfying the patient's demands.
He makes sure he knows the medical file of his patients before any programming of surgery act.
He saw his patient in consultation before any final programming of surgery act. He explains to the patient the different possibilities answering to his demand. He also formalizes the medical risks incurred by the patient.
In accordance with the law, the surgeon and the medical staff have an obligation of means. In plastic surgery the result is not an obligation.
The benefit of the clinic must be consistent with the law in force in Tunisia.
In the framework of "medical tourism", the clinic must be up to the standard of hygiene and security comparable to the European clinics.
The company of services specializing in plastic surgery makes the patients and the plastic surgeons get in touch and deals with the organization of their contacts.
It transmits the demands of the patients to the surgeons. It guides the patients throughout their medical course.
If this company communicates medical information on Internet, it must be responsible for what it writes or of what it offers.
Therefore, It must have a person in charge specialized in surgery in order to control the whole medical part of the communication. The photos "before, after" that it uses to show the surgeries results are set by this medical person in charge.
These photos are published with the patient's agreement and the surgeon author of the act must be clearly identifiable.
A person who is not a physician and not specializing in surgery cannot propose any plastic surgery or suggest any indication.
Therefore these companies must have a medical employee adviser responsible for the medical elements communicated on their Internet site.
The company of service (through its medical person in charge) must also make it sure that the period of the patient's stay in Tunisia is consistent with the medical recommendations.
This charter of good practices has a qualitative goal and commits the responsibility of its signatories.
It is meant to evolve according to any recommendations aiming at improving the service offered to the patients and the engagement of new signatory actors.
