Details

The report outlines the need for better regulation to bring the cosmetic surgery industry into line with those in other countries and align it with comparable public health and consumer practice in this country.

Its recommendations focus on three important areas: high quality care with safe products, skilled practitioners and responsible providers; an informed public to ensure people get accurate advice and that the vulnerable are protected; accessible redress and resolution in case things go wrong.
