Botched plastic surgery common throughout the world

After seeing 2 botched cosmetic surgical operations this week. Please refer to the associated warning. “Do your homework” from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Patients in Australia are seeking cheaper plastic surgery from unqualified doctors. Enticed by radio advertisements and false claims or superiority. Some patients are going overseas for cheaper surgery and are receiving not only a botched results but also complications. These complications are expensive to the patient and to our medical health system as they are eventually cared for in the Public Hospital system at great expense to you and me as tax payer.

There is only one way to get cheap surgery and that is for surgeons to cut corners. The associated video warns against surgery in unlicensed and unaccredited facilities.

Quality costs, there is no substitute for experience!
