A Russian beauty salons was one of the worst offenders in a new report on the nation’s “worst offenders” of cosmetic surgery.
A team of researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology found that more than 1,500 cosmetic surgery facilities nationwide were performing less than five percent of the procedures performed on patients.
The report also found that, while a small percentage of these procedures were performed on the “right” patient, the vast majority were performed with “bad” patients, meaning they didn’t need to be surgically removed.
According to the report, a total of $4.7 billion worth of cosmetic surgeries were performed in the United States in 2017.
While the report doesn’t give specific numbers on the numbers of procedures performed by the beauty salon industry, it says that it was the “most frequently performed cosmetic surgery.”
In 2018, the report found that over 2,000 cosmetic surgeries had been performed by beauty saloons.
The study’s findings come as a backlash against beauty salontas in Russia continues.
In May, the Russian beauty company L’Oreal was fined $US40 million ($56 million) after a Russian court ruled that the company had performed more than 50,000 surgeries on minors without their consent.
A separate investigation by BuzzFeed News found that L’Oréal is now under investigation for “breach of contract” by Russian authorities for using minors in its operations.
While L’ Oréal claims it is acting on behalf of minors, BuzzFeed News has reported that it has been under investigation by Russian investigators since 2018 for “failing to prevent minors from being used in the production of cosmetic products.”
In September, Russia’s Ministry of Health and Welfare ordered L’oréal to stop performing cosmetic surgery on minors.
The move comes amid a growing crackdown by the country’s Ministry for the Family, which has been conducting raids on Russian beauty parlors.
“The ministry has been looking for any opportunity to target the salons and have raided them repeatedly,” Igor Burdakov, an independent human rights researcher and former member of Russia’s lower house of parliament, told BuzzFeed News.
“I was very surprised at how many salons had been raided.”
According to Burdarov, the government is also looking for salons that were operating without government approval, and is looking to close any that remain open.
“They’ve started raiding their clinics and asking if they have permission to open new ones,” he said.
“This is happening right before the holidays.
People are just scared of what is going to happen next.”
The Russia’s Beauty Industry in a Nutshell report, published by Polygon on Monday, also found “that some beauty salonies were operating with dubious practices that could lead to harm and even death.”
One of the biggest problems, according to the researchers, was that there was “little or no oversight” of the operations.
Many of the salon’s procedures were done in places like schools, offices, and hospitals, which made it difficult for staff to verify what was being done and who was performing what.
“There are no clear guidelines or policies to regulate or regulate procedures and even some facilities may be violating the law or are failing to follow it,” the report states.
“In one case, a woman was given an operation at a public school and was told it was done in a hospital,” it says.
“She was taken to a hospital and told the operation had been done in her home.
The doctor who performed the operation later said that he thought it was a sham because she didn’t have any documentation or a health certificate from a doctor.”
According the report’s authors, these salons were not operating within the rules that should be followed when performing cosmetic procedures.
For example, the salonta could have simply told the doctor performing the operation that she was suffering from an allergic reaction to the medicine and the saloon should have done a follow-up procedure instead of the original operation, they said.
But the saloons didn’t, and the staff continued to do it, according the report.
The salons are also not supposed to follow the rules for proper documentation, which “caused them to fail to comply with the Russian legislation and the regulations, leading to injuries and death.”
The report recommends that the government tighten regulations on the industry, and that the Ministry of the Family and Health be given authority to inspect and shut down salons.
“While the saloning industry is growing rapidly, the industry still faces severe challenges in terms of regulation and oversight,” it reads.
“Regulators must ensure that safety standards are being followed, that operations are safe and humanely performed, and there is clear oversight to ensure that no harm is done.”
It also recommends that hospitals be forced to conduct periodic inspections and reviews of salons to ensure the safety of their patients.
