A ban on cut-price deals and a clampdown on aggressive sales techniques for cosmetic surgery are among ideas submitted to a review of the industry ordered in the wake of the PIP breast implant scandal.
A two-stage consent process for potential patients to allow them time to reflect before making a final decision were among suggestions given to the review into the plastic surgery industry being led by Sir Bruce Keogh, the NHS medical director.
The ideas from the public, the industry and patient groups to safeguard people thinking of having cosmetic procedures are included in an interim report, released today, that will feed into the review, due to be published in March.
