 Cosmetic Surgery Regulations to be Reviewed in Britain

A government backed review will be looking into the regulations governing cosmetic surgery and will involve asking opinion of such surgeries from the general public in Britain.

The review is backed by Health Secretary Andrew Lansley and will be headed by NHS Medical Director, Professor Sir Bruce Keogh.

The review comes following yet another breast implants scare in 2011 when the French government recommended that women who had undergone PIP breast implants should remove them as a precaution after it was found that substandard materials were used.

According to figures, more than 47,000 women in Britain have undergone PIP breast implant surgeries with around 7,000 of them currently having checks for fault breast implants. "I am concerned that too many people do not realize how serious cosmetic surgery is and do not consider the lifelong implications it can have. That's why I have put together this review committee to advise me in making recommendations to government on how we can better protect people who choose to have surgery or cosmetic interventions.", Sir Keogh said.
