Abstract
Malaysia, like the rest of the world, recognizes an increasing interest and demand for aesthetic medical practice (AMP). To ensure public safety and to uphold professional standards, a set of guidelines on AMP was successfully developed in 2014. This was an initiative by the Malaysian Ministry of Health with the involvement of the Malaysian Medical Council. The process was arduous and it took almost five years of extensive deliberation by experts of various stake holders in the Ministry of Health, universities, professional bodies and private practitioners. The guidelines define classification of aesthetic medical procedures, classification of chapters of medical practitioners, non-specialists (Chapter 1), medical specialists (Chapter 2) and surgical specialists (Chapter 3), scope of AMP for respective chapters, process of registering of medical practitioners leading to issuance of Letter of Credentialing and Privileging (LCP), national registry of registered medical practitioners with LCP, appeal mechanism, application process for foreign medical practitioners, despite some challenges encountered, its implementation has brought some positive impact on the delivery of aesthetic medical practice thus far, there is control on sale of class IV medical lasers to registered medical practitioners with LCP only, self-regulation on scope of practice has minimize complications, there is an established channel for public complaints on unethical practice, availability of national registry of medical practitioners with LCP on Ministry of Health website for public reference, availability of well-structured training courses by qualified local trainers for interested medical practitioners and there is a clear understanding that non-medical practitioners (beauticians) cannot perform procedures identified for medical practitioners. It is hoped that this set of guidelines will meet its objectives in ensuring public safety and upholding professional standard in the delivery of aesthetic medical practice in Malaysia.
