France: ......calling from middle ages........

Dear Members and Friends of NETWORK-Globalhealth,

A cry for help has reached us from our colleagues in France, where a ministerial decree came into force 2 weeks ago which constitutes a massive restriction on medical freedom and which we wish to inform you about by this letter. The letter from our French colleagues is shown below.

The decree prohibits every form of reduction treatment for deposits of fat with the exception of liposuction
We see this decree as having such serious implications that in our opinion extensive countermeasures are essential in order to bring about its withdrawal.

Our intention for the time being is only to inform you of this relapse into mediaeval methods. We will work on developing a more comprehensive strategy for countermeasures. We will then write to you again and ask for your support.

We have made the ministerial decree and the complete publication of the HAS - Haute Autorité de Santé - available for download under the following links:
www.netzwerk-lipolyse.de/fileadmin/Décret_n°2011-382_du_11_avril_2011.pdf

With best regards,

......calling from middle ages........

Dear friends,

As we are punished by a new law of the French Health Ministry, we would ask if an action could be done with the help of the Network-Globalhealth and Network Lipolysis.

Would it be possible to pass to all members and Network's friends a circular open letter saying our shocking and outrageous is this french law forbidding the community of French aesthetic doctors  ALL lipolysis techniques, ALL in one bag (from the one done by the beautician to the one done by the established  serious physician) for the reason that they have no standards, no protocol, no studies, no publication!!! 
Please note that the law has forbidden:

- lipolysis by hypo osmolar injection (for this we all agree)
- lipolysis by ultrasounds (all !)
- lipolysis by PPC/DC  IL
- lipolysis by mesotherapy injections
- lipolysis by radiofrequency (all devices !)
- lipolysis by laser (Osyris, Deka and ALL Laser Lipolysis devices!)

The law stipulates that all these techniques of lipolysis are INVASIVE (!) and represent A SERIOUS HEALTH DANGER (!)
  We are QUOTING THE OFFICIAL TEXT!

We are calling for the reaction and help of the international community of Aesthetic Medecine by at least signing a document of reaction. And we ask the physicians who agree to answer our call to sign it with full name and position if they are opinion leaders, members of other scientific societies, professors at universities and so on so the French government sees that the aesthetic medicine and surgery intelligenzia worldwide is really shocked by this law.

Just imagine : a regular practice of aesthetic medicine in France CAN'T offer anymore procedures with : Tripolar, Velasmooth, Smoothsapes, Ultrashape, Utrilog, any ultrasonolipolysis, any radiofrequency, Infra-Red therapies, Smartlipo, Osyris, Cynosure, mesotherapy for cellulitis, Network's IL.......and the list has no end as it includes ANY LIPOLYSIS TECHNIQUES!!!

French patients have no more choice and alternative to liposuction, which ratio results/risk has not been evaluated in the pre-law study!

If any of the members wishes to pass us a paper with his/hers experience of the above listed techniques (except hypo osmolar injections) it would also help.

Aesthetic doctors in France are federating right now in one voice. Please HELP US.

It is a matter of Freedom, Dignity and Future for Aesthetic Medicine in France. We can't let this situation like it is or it would mean that the community accepts the non-recognition of the techniques above, among which we all know how much serious some are!
