Social Stigma Concerns Restrain the Growth of Medical Aesthetic Devices Market

Social stigma acts as a barrier to the aesthetic treatment services. There are increasing concerns with aesthetic interventions. The practice of aesthetic medicine has been marginally regulated, in highly developed countries as well. The main concern appears to be the practice of minimally invasive aesthetic surgery by general practitioners. In addition, certain factors like patient's right for informed counseling and beneficence are given careful consideration. In recent years, violation of ethical principles in plastic surgery has become increasingly noticeable, which is hindering the market potential of aesthetic intervention. For the aesthetic correction of certain diseases or conditions such as aging, where it is difficult to say if it is a disease or physiological course of events, the concept of aesthetic medicine is disregarded. The advertising limitations for medical professionals and the maintenance of the boundaries are confined to the field of aesthetic medicine. Aesthetic surgery is now an ethical dilemma, which challenges its market growth
