Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery – BAAPS Meeting 2010

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), who are the regulatory body for Plastic Surgery in the UK held their annual meeting on September 23rd 2010.

Mr Juma of Feel Younger Cosmetic Surgery based at Rodney Street in Liverpool is a member of BAAPS and during the meeting, the dangers of rogue cosmetic surgery providers were highlighted along with the new non compulsory register devised for the providers of injectable treatments such as botulinum toxin (Botox) and dermal fillers, Restylane and Juvederm Ultra.

A further agenda for discussion during the conference was the deregulation of intense pulse light (IPL) and laser treatments which is scheduled for October.  The potential dangers such as burns, redness and injury from laser treatments not performed correctly are already apparent according to a BAAPS member who claims to have noted a third of an increase in such incidents.

According to consultant plastic surgeon and outgoing President Nigel Mercer; “The proposed deregulation means that providers offering powerful laser treatments will not be overseen by the Care Quality Commission or indeed, anyone. In an environment where clinicians are continually asking for tighter controls it is absurd that the Government should actually be seeking to further deregulate

Injectables and “Botox courses” facilitated over half a day were also topics for discussion at the conference as some are specifically designed to cater for people who have no previous experience in this field.

According to Nigel Mercer;

“These weekend courses have sprung up around the country and a voluntary register such as the one launched last week will be powerless to stop them.

This course in particular even boasted of an attendee who felt that the fact he’d had diabetes and treated himself with insulin for years meant he was qualified to inject his family and friends with Botox!”
