In the new episode of the Malakhov program on the Russia 1 TV channel, guests discussed the conflict that arose between the star plastic surgeon Timur Khaidarov and his dissatisfied customers. Women came to the studio to publicly express their dissatisfaction with the doctor’s work. So, Lyudmila Gerashchenko reported that she had an operation with Khaidarov in 2021, and showed everyone present her poorly shaped breasts.
Honored Lawyer of Russia Ivan Solovyov noticed in an interview Public News Servicethat all of Khaidarov’s clients probably signed a complex document with him, which protected him at least from criminal prosecution.
“Most likely, Khaidarov, understanding the delicacy of his work, as well as the fact that he could not predict all its consequences, attracted good lawyers to create client agreements, who worked very closely to remove liability from the clinic as much as possible,” the publication’s interlocutor emphasized . “At the same time, no document repeals the effect of this legislation, which, if plastic surgery has caused harm to the patient’s health, will not act in the interests of Khaidarov.”
The Honored Lawyer of the Russian Federation invited patients dissatisfied with the services provided to “understand the essence of their complaints.”
“If they don’t like their appearance after plastic surgery, then this is a purely civil law relationship.”blockquote
“If they don’t like their appearance after plastic surgery, then this is a purely civil relationship,” Soloviev noted. “If the court satisfies the claims of such clients, then they can count on full or partial reimbursement of their expenses for the operation, compensation for moral damage, as well as free restoration of any defects that have arisen.”
If the matter concerns harm already caused to health, then in this case, the expert notes, everything becomes “more complicated, but at the same time clearer.”
“The only question is how exactly the damage was recorded”blockquote
“Criminal liability may already arise here,” the publication’s interlocutor emphasizes. “The only question is how exactly the damage was recorded.” In our country, according to the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, it is divided into “light”, “medium” and “severe”. All gradations are in the relevant documents! Thus, an examination is carried out, and, depending on the degree of harm, the plastic surgeon may be brought under Article No. 238 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, which is called “Production, storage, transportation or sale of goods and products, performance of work or provision of services that do not meet safety requirements” .
According to this article, the lawyer continued, in the event of minor harm to health, the one through whose fault it happened gets off with fines and restriction of freedom.
“If the patient was seriously harmed, or even died due to the actions of a plastic surgeon, then he can be imprisoned for up to six years,” Solovyov said. “However, any such harm must be recorded and confirmed by appropriate examinations!”
The publication’s interlocutor called the entire current “hype” around Timur Khaidarov and his clients a “PR campaign.”
“And if there is no harm to health, then there is no criminal liability”blockquote
“I don’t know whether this is happening with the consent of the parties, or whether they are really all unhappy with each other, but, observing this scandal, I can say that the discussion there is being conducted exclusively on the issue of the patient’s appearance that does not suit him,” the expert noted. — This is all, as I said, resolved within the framework of the civil law. And if there is no harm to health, then there is no criminal liability.”
Previously oral and maxillofacial surgeon Alexander Vdovin shared his impressions from surgery with star doctor Timur Khaidarov. In particular, the man was dissatisfied with the consequences of the intervention.
