Cosmetic surgery: An unregulated industry

It’s astonishing that the multi-million pound UK cosmetic surgery industry remains largely unregulated. This environment encourages surgeons and clinics to put the pursuit of profit before the quality of medical care. It also allows the inexperienced, the insufficiently trained and sometimes the outright unscrupulous to flourish. It is therefore no surprise that the number of negligence claims arising from cosmetic procedures is a major problem in this country. And with cosmetic surgery becoming increasingly popular the risks posed to patients has never been greater.
