Cosmetic surgery is a burgeoning field and people now a days need to be aware of the various options available. Hence a website which gives exclusive information about cosmetic surgery and the associated treatments is loaded in the net.
The Department of Health says this website will provide details about the risks and the possible outcomes.
At present cosmetic surgery is not offered in the National Health Services. But currently many people opt for it. Hence there is a need that information and other proper medical advices are given to such people.
In England there is a separate committee headed by Chief Medical Officer, Professor Sir Liam Donaldson to examine the regulation of cosmetic surgery.
A major rule is that people should be given access to the various details, alternative advices, standards required by the providers, qualifications of the clinicians and other frequently asked questions.
People need to be helped and supported to make informed choices whether to undergo a cosmetic surgery or a non-surgical cosmetic treatment. Better they are aware of all these options the standard of the cosmetic surgery also increases gradually.
The website gives a wealth of information regarding cosmetic surgery. The risks, procedures, the alternative methods, details of the treatment, and the results of the particular surgery are all explained in the site.
Information about the surgeons, beauty therapist, doctors, and nurses involved in the cosmetic surgery and their qualifications and experiences are all given. The website all welcomes more information and details which will guide the patients in the right direction.
Dr Douglas McGeorge, president-elect of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, said that those clinicians who do not have formal qualifications in aesthetic surgery and still practicing it will not be allowed to do so. People practicing before 2002 will continue practicing without any interruptions. This is due to the reason that all the practioners from 2002 will be listed in the specialty register.
