Surgical Cosmetic Procedures

The Department of Health has issued Recommendations for patients considering Surgical Cosmetic procedures.  These include a recommendation that patients consult with an appropriately registered plastic surgeon.  To verify a doctor’s qualifications and to check if a doctor is on the specialist division of the medical register, patients can use the Medical Council’s ‘Search for a Registered Doctor' facility, and search by name as well as registration number.

The Medical Council recommends that for any medical matter, patients first consult their GP, as the person who best knows their medical history.
