Cosmetic surgery report ‘too little too late’

“We feel very disappointed indeed that here we have another report that
does not address directly any of the issues facing the [PIP implant] women
and provides no comfort for those of use that are still suffering with PIP

The committee recommended that all cosmetic procedures, from breast implants
to laser hair removal should be carried out solely by medical practitioners
who appear on a newly formed central register, to which access is only
gained with appropriate training and specific qualifications. Those not on
the register should not be able to get insurance, it said.

There was also a call for an ombudsman to be appointed to assist private
patients who receive inadequate care.

The committee said that aggressive marketing techniques and incentives such as
two-for-one and time-limited deals should be banned.
