Cosmetic surgery website launched

A website giving information about cosmetic surgery and treatments is being launched by the government.

The Department of Health says it is important people considering treatment can access reliable information about the risks and likely outcomes.

Cosmetic surgery is not available on the NHS, but there has been a big increase in demand in recent years.

There are concerns that many people opt to undergo treatment without first seeking proper medical advice.

I do know of one lady who went in for a nose job and came out in a box because the surgery was botched. The surgeon, in an attempt to stem the bleeding from a vessel he had inadvertantly severed, stuffed packing bandages into her nasal cavity ... problem was he kept stuffing and ended up driving the packaging into her brain (no shit, you couldn't make this stuff up).

No way!!! Wow and all because she wanted a nicer nose. Hollywood has perpetuated the myth that all you have to do is walk into the plastic surgeon's office and walk out beautiful.

Although the manufacturers warrantee has expired, I still think I'll stick with my original parts. :)
