Senior doctor from Epsom Hospital backs plastic surgery review
A senior doctor from Epsom, Sutton and St Helier hospitals is encouraging people to have their say in a major review of plastic surgery.
The government review was launched on August 15 and wants people to share their experiences of the cosmetic service industry.
Dr Ruth Charlton, joint medical director for Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals Trust, said: "The number of people having cosmetic surgery and procedures has increased significantly in recent years - whether that’s a breast enlargement, nose job, liposuction, Botox injection, chemical peel or dermal filler - and the recent problems with PiP breast implants have led to a focus on the industry.
"I am concerned that too many people do not realise how serious cosmetic surgery is and do not consider the longer term implications it can have."
