Abstract

Advances in science and technology and the ability, skills, and soul of the art of Plastic Reconstructive
and Aesthetic Surgeons can change human organs according to the patient’s wishes to improve one’s
appearance to become more beautiful or handsome. Aesthetic plastic surgery is not performed to
treat physical disabilities, in contrast to reconstructive plastic surgery, which aims to treat physical
disabilities. However, misunderstandings or failures can occur because Plastic Reconstructive and
Aesthetic Surgeons are also human, so it does not give satisfaction to the results expected by the patient.
Not infrequently, the misunderstanding peaked, resulting in a dispute between the doctor of Plastic
Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons with the patient. This research method is normative juridical
research empirical. The research specification in this study is descriptive-analytical. Research conducted
using secondary data sources that include primary legal materials in norms, basic rules, laws, and
regulations. The results of this study explain that Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons should
not give an appointment or guarantee success on the surgical efforts that have been done because there
are other factors beyond their power as a doctor. The doctor should explain the risks and complications
that may occur. In addition, before surgery, it is recommended that a complete agreement be made
with the patient, and the patient understands and understands the risks or possibilities that can occur
postoperatively in the future. The doctor and patient agreement are made in full and detailed in written
form before medical action is carried out by involving a notary public to ensure legal certainty, fairness,
and benefit.
