Cosmetic surgery 'should be done by specialist surgeons'

Cosmetic surgery ‘should be done by specialist surgeons’

Doctors should be prevented from performing cosmetic surgery outside their speciality, according to the Royal College of Surgeons.

It told the BBC the current rules allowed “GPs to do nose jobs” and that was “a big problem” for patients.

The organisation wants a new system to certify surgeons for each procedure.

Bodies that represent aesthetic plastic surgeons say that they support the idea but it will only help patients if it is “mandatory and policed”.
