The public consultation was launched as part of the review set up after the PIP breast implant scandal last year.
The responses from 180 patients, the public and the industry showed backing for:
- Banning free consultations for cosmetic surgery to avoid people feeling obliged to have procedures.
- Ensuring consultations take place with a medical professional rather than a sales adviser.
- Tighter restrictions on advertising, including a ban on two-for-one deals, those with a time limit or offering cosmetic surgery as competition prizes.
- A two-stage written consent for surgery, allowing patients to take time over their decision.
- Better information for patients about the risks associated with surgery, plus photographs of expected bruising and scarring.
