Cynon Valley MP Ann Clwyd says she has tried to introduce legislation to prevent the "horrific consequences" of botched cosmetic surgery three times over the last 20 years.
She is now sponsoring a Private Member's Bill through, which has its second reading in the House of Commons next month.
It's called the "Cosmetic Surgery (Minimum Standards) Bill."
She wants to see established:
- An Implant register - so that any silicon implant, for example, is registered to the hospital, the surgeon and the date, in case anything goes wrong
- A procedure to check that people practising cosmetic surgery have the necessary qualifications
- An overall body to regulate cosmetic surgery, similar to Ofcom for broadcast media
