Following his quote in the Mail on Sunday this week, an article on consultant plastic surgeon Mr Ash Mosahebi’s warning over cosmetic surgery cowboys has been published in the Watford Observer newspaper.
Mr Mosahebi was initially quoted in an article in the Mail on Sunday, entitled 'I shake with rage that the plastic surgeon that killed my mother is still working: Football star Colin Hendry's daughter launches our new campaign to Stop Cosmetic Surgery Cowboys'. It featured comments from Mr Mosahebi as a spokesperson for BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons).
The Watford Observer's articles, 'Spire Bushey Hospital plastic surgeon Ash Mosahebi demands end to 'cowboy' practitioners' (online) and 'Surgeon's warning over procedures' (print) focus more on Mr Mosahebi's views on the rise of cosmetic surgery patients whose procedures have gone wrong.
He said: "I think it is a huge problem because most of the cosmetic surgery done in this country is done by people who don’t have NHS cover. I am not saying they are all cowboys, but in order to become an NHS consultant, it involves rigorous checks."
He also said that anyone looking to have a cosmetic procedure should look at regulated medical associations such as BAAPS or the British Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS).
