This paper presents guidelines for the safe outpatient practice of aesthetic surgery. These guidelines have been prepared by the Lombard Association of Plastic Surgery for Outpatients (ALChiPlA), an association confined to board certified plastic surgeons and holders of official authorizations issued by the Lombard ASL to perform outpatient surgery. The cornerstone of these guidelines is the health and safety of patients, who are turning to this type of surgery in ever increasing numbers. This is the first and thus far the only attempt of its kind and its value is increased by the fact that it has been prepared by specialists who have been carrying out this type of surgery in outpatient situations for years.
