NSW Government reviews cosmetic surgery regulation

The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons has, for many years, called for nationally-consistent regulation of cosmetic surgery, particularly  around the use of anaesthetic in unlicensed facilities, arguing the current lack of  oversight poses an unacceptable risk to patient safety.

ASPS applauds Minister Jillian Skinner for this timely initiative.  We hope the Discussion Paper will lead to legislation that helps protect the safety of the increasing number of consumers seeking cosmetic procedures.
