The growing demand of esthetic medical and surgery services, practised in the most varied logistic-enviromental structures, should arouse, according to the authors’point of view, a serious and deep consideration about the main medical and forensic aspects concerning these peculiar types of professional practise. On the basis of a case personally observed, the aim of this paper is to underline some aspects of the problem which have not yet been deeply examined till now, such as: the difficult specification of autonomies and related responsibilities of the professional figures different from physicians, who operate in those fields, and, above all, the emerging medical responsibility outlines related to anesthesiological procedures and structural requirements in ambulatory esthetic surgerys.
