The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons today welcomes ‘with relief’ the reported findings from Sir Bruce Keogh's inquiry into cosmetic surgery, in particular their recommendation for dermal fillers to be available via prescription only, as well as the need for more evidence-based research in cosmetic surgery.
It has been the most hotly anticipated thing to happen in the aesthetics industry in years and now today the Keogh review has finally published its findings and outlined its recommendations for the future of the aesthetics market. The 67-page document could potentially have huge implications for the way medical aesthetics is practiced in the UK. The independent review into cosmetic interventions was published today and sets out how it would like to see the sector better regulated, practitioners better trained and people having proper redress if things go wrong.
