FINN, Markus. FUNDAMENTALS OF GERMAN MEDICAL LIABILITY LAW IN THE FIELD OF AESTHETIC SURGERY. RChDP [online]. 2015, n.25, pp.55-75. ISSN 0718-8072.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-80722015000200002.

The German medical liability law makes a distinction between the responsibility for treatment mistakes and responsibility for lack of information. Interventions in aesthetic surgery is, as a rule, a medical practice when the physician is below the standard in force in the respective special field of aesthetic plastic surgery. However, in the case of lack of information liability (tort) is based on bodily injury, according to the jurisdiction of German courts is inherent in any medical intervention in body or health status of the patient. However, bodily injury is not considered unlawful if the patient, after having been duly informed, has given valid consent (informed consent). Informed consent, which the treating party should give evidence at trial, can justify the bodily injury. In the aesthetic operations it is of practical importance, above all, the responsibility for insufficient information on the risks of the respective intervention. If aesthetic surgery, as no medical indication occurs often, the requirements for patient information are particularly stringent. In this sense, the jurisdiction requires a extensive, intense and sometimes "thoughtless" information about imminent risks, in the case of offset to some extent the purely "aesthetic indication" by the qualified patient consent after extensive information (intensely informed consent). If it is found that the information was insufficient, doctors and hospitals may be liable for damages and ordered to pay compensation for personal injury.
