The Oregon Department of Consumer Services has issued a safety bulletin to parents and students about the dangers of plastic surgery procedures that are performed in the state.
In the memo, DCCS warns parents to keep their children safe when wearing surgery masks or other protective gear.
The DCCs bulletin was released ahead of the state’s annual plastic surgery convention, which is taking place from April 24 to 28 in Corvallis, Ore.
While the guidelines say to not wear the mask while performing surgery, DCCCS recommends that patients stay calm during the procedure and that the mask be worn only at the hospital.
The guidelines also recommend that people use eye protection and that patients keep their hands outside of the operating room while performing operations.
The bulletin also suggests that if the operation is done at home, the patient should not use the mask, and that people should avoid contact with the operating table during the operation.
In addition, the guidelines suggest that parents not wear masks while operating on their children or children’s relatives.
