Can a patient's plastic surgery experience be advertised? Cosmetic clinics have controversially posted such videos on YouTube
According to The Korea Times on July 15, the cosmetic clinic caused controversy by posting a video on YouTube of patients telling their stories.Because these videos are seen as advertisements to promote clinics, there is no mention of the possible side effects of cosmetic surgery.
The videos have an average of 100,000 hits, some of which have more than 2 million hits. The main show of the patient's excitement about the operation, as well as the speed and safety of the operation, the patient barely spoke of her pain, the end of the video, always strongly recommended that viewers go to the hospital for cosmetic surgery.
In the process, the hospital pays the patient a fee in return for recording the procedure.There is no specific law regulating such advertisements masquerading as customer reviews.Under (Korean) medical law, online advertising that does not mention the possible side effects of medical treatment or surgery, or exaggerates its positive effects, is illegal. But the plastic surgery clinic's YouTube channel is in a gray area because it's unclear whether it's regulated.
What about China's medical laws?
