New Standards For Surgeons

It is a sad fact that there are a some plastic surgeons and clinics out there that seek to take advantage of vulnerable clients. They see the desperation that can so often come with such personal issues, the urgency and impatience of wanting to seek treatment as quickly as possible to correct the problem they have. They also see the strain that costly procedures can have on many clients and offer services at a much cheaper cost or use aggressive sales tactics in order to lure clients in. But this can often have very damaging consequences.

Under-qualified surgeons and the treatments they provide can often be of a much lower standard than you would come to expect, risking undesirable results that can sometimes be disastrous. The risk of complications can be higher when going to a less experienced surgeon, and is one that you should not take. Thankfully, now there are new standards that are starting to be put into place in order to combat and prevent further issues.

Importance Of Qualifications

Specifically, there are two main bodies of association that you need to take note of and be aware of when you come to considering any type of cosmetic treatment. The British Association Of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) and The British Association Of Plastic, Reconstructive And Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAPRAS) are leading British associations dedicated to education and safety within aesthetic surgeries.

Members of such organisations are sure to be highly trained, experienced and trusted professionals, recognised and assessed by the General Medical Council. It is ideal for gauging the reliability of a surgeon in Britain as you begin to research prior to seeking personal treatment. You can check who is a member of BAPRAS and BAAPS on their websites. You should also check that the surgeon is listed on the GMC’s specialist register as an accredited plastic surgeon.
