Keep an Eye on ‘Cosmetics Surgeons’
Following concerns about some Australians who have been sucked in by bogus cosmetic surgeons, some states such as New South Wales, Queensland, and Victoria, have taken steps to encourage restrictions around cosmetic surgery. The restriction is aiming to stop the term “cosmetic surgeons” being misapplied to basic medical graduates. Some patients have complained of inadequate results and even life-threatening infections resulting from procedures by individuals they trusted so obviously this is a pressing issue.
