BAAPS Calls for Strict Norms for Cosmetic Surgery

BAAPSIt seems that the much talked about controversy surrounding PIP breast implants has paved way for more stern regulation now. It has been told that the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (Baaps) has come forward to assure that there is lot to be done concerning the cosmetic surgery commercials which are by and large inciting people to wrong means of getting things done.

Recalling the debate over the flawed breast PIP implants, the organization has called to impose ban on such ads. In addition, an insurance scheme is called for in the field so that things could be improved in the time to come. Instead of resorting to the marketing gimmicks of the companies, there must be step taken in this regard to ensure that such steps don’t harm anyone. Though the French company Poly Implant Prostheses (PIP) has been closed now, the case has certainly given the much needed jolt to the industry and people.

"Over the last decade the Baaps has worked tirelessly to educate the public on the many aggressive marketing gimmicks that not only trivialise surgery but endanger the patient”, said Baaps President Fazel Fatah, who is of the view that there is requirement of rational means to be incubated in the system to treat genuine patients in the first place.

Even there are reports indicating that there would be some consolidated system developed to track who all are going for such cosmetic operations. There are many companies which on the name of makeover are befooling people to get operated. It is not only making things worse for such people, but putting them under the risk of uncalled for medical health concerns in future.

The stern words said by the government has certainly raised hopes that there would be some positive changes coming in the way such companies used to operate so far.
