Edgar Kaminskyi doesn’t only have a booming plastic surgery business, but a popular Instagram account, too. Aside from posting photos of his everyday life, the 31-year-old Ukranian plastic surgeon also posts pictures from the operating room, including selfies and photos of his unconscious patients.
Naturally, not everyone is a fan of Kaminskyi’s uploads. Mary O’Brien, consultant plastic surgeon and part of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery calls the photos “inappropriate” and points out that during surgery, “a surgeon should be focusing wholly on that operation, and not on marketing for his own personal gain.”
Kaminskyi has gotten wind of the controversy and posted another photo to his Instagram account, this time claiming gets patients consent before posting anything.
Спорные, но интересные статьи в #TheSun и #NewYorkPost 🤔 ⚠️ Ещё раз повторю : пациенты, которых я транслирую и показываю в соц сетях, дают на это своё согласие. ⚠️ П.С. Я знаю, что в некоторых странах это запрещено при любых условиях. 👉👉👉 @thesun @dr_edgar
