Cosmetic Surgery – Making the Right Choice

March 2011

Cosmetic surgery continues to grow in popularity and is no longer the preserve of the wealthy. Many articles in the press and a number of TV programmes, regularly feature cosmetic surgery and often suggest that it is as straightforward as arranging a day at a health farm. The press has also reported recently on the increasing amount of patients travelling abroad for surgery, with, in some instances, tragic results. 

Cosmetic surgery can bring real improvement to the appearance and provide a boost to self-confidence, but making the right choice of which clinic or hospital to have the surgery at and which consultant surgeon to select is imperative in order to achieve the look you want. 

Mrs Chien C Kat, Consultant Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon, practicing at Spire Parkway Hospital, has developed a blog in which she gives her own thoughts on the growing amount of press coverage relating to cosmetic surgery.
