Faulty PiP breast implants, botched botox, and surgical horror stories have led an MP to campaign for regulation of cosmetic procedures.
Anne Clywd MP introduced a Private Members’ Bill to the House of Commons this week.
She suggested that regulation could either be in the form of ‘an official regulator of cosmetic surgery called OfCos’, or a ‘cosmetic surgery licensing body’, similar to the way ATOL licenses tour operators.
The Bill has received support from Conservative MPs Dr Sarah Wollaston and Dr Daniel Poulter, and is due to have its second reading in November.
