Clinical trials are not a way to get plastic surgery for free, and not everyone qualifies to participate. All plastic surgery studies in Chicago have inclusion criteria and guidelines which outline who can participate and who cannot participate (exclusion criteria). To be a candidate for a particular study, you must meet the inclusion conditions.
Studies are not meant for the individual, but to gather data on a product or device and determine its safety and suitability for mass distribution. Therefore, if a person is allergic to any one of the ingredients used in a study product, is not able to follow up, or has any other issues with the treatment, they should not join.
What are the Advantages of Participating in a Plastic Surgery Study in Chicago?
If you do qualify to participate in a plastic surgery study, you get a chance to contribute to your medical care. Another notable advantage of participating in such a study is that you have access to treatments that could end up being exciting and new before they are released to the general public. As a participant in such a study, you receive only the best medical care from doctors involved in the study. Patients treated in such studies may receive several medical benefits from the procedures performed. They also receive financial reimbursements for their time, in some cases.
Are Clinical Trials Safe for Participants?
Clinical trials conducted in the US for treatment must get the approval of the FDA, as well as the IRB (Institutional Review Board). This ensures the trial is tested for safety and minimizes the risks you undertake, as well as increases the chances of benefits. Moreover, if you decide to go ahead and enroll in a trial, you will be informed of the critical facts which you will be expected to learn. The main reason is so that you make an informed consent. Furthermore, should you at any point, during the study, and for any reason, decide to leave and want to withdraw, you are allowed to do so. All involvement is voluntary.
