Best way to protect consumers of cosmetic procedures

Best way to protect consumers of cosmetic procedures

The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons welcomes consultation on draft guidelines for cosmetic, medical and surgical procedures proposed by the Medical Board of Australia on 17 March 2015.

ASPS is the specialty’s peak body and will make a submission to the Medical Board on behalf of all Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons.

“The guidelines which include cooling off periods, psychological assessments for under 18s, and clear guidance on informed patient consent, are consistent with measures the Society has been calling for over a number of years and echoes guidelines already embedded in our own Code of Practice, says ASPS President, Dr Tony Kane.
