Welcomes DOH Review into Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Share Article

The Cadogan Clinic, a premium Chelsea-based cosmetic surgery clinic (, welcomes the announcement that the UK government is launching a major review into the cosmetic surgery industry with the stated aim of more firmly regulating the industry. The Cadogan Clinic sees the review as a positive development for the UK cosmetic surgery industry and hopes that it will lead to higher professional standards and improved patient safety.

Today, the Cadogan Clinic, London’s most exclusive cosmetic surgery clinic, announced that it welcomed the decision of the UK Department of Health (DOH) to launch a major review of cosmetic surgery procedures and sales techniques. The review, which will be led by Sir Bruce Keogh, the medical director of the National Health Service (NHS), invites people to express their views and share their experiences of the cosmetic surgery industry and cosmetic procedures, as announced on the DOH website.

The Times reported yesterday that the interview was set up by Andrew Lansley, the Health Secretary, and was prompted by the recent crisis over substandard PIP implants. About 40,000 British women had implants made by the French manufacturer, which used illegal industrial silicone. In an interview with The Times, Sir Bruce, a heart surgeon himself, noted that he was likely to recommend tighter rules in several key areas of cosmetic surgery such as making it routine practice for surgeons to register all devices such as breast implants, and the introduction of a requirement for clinics to join a scheme which will offer patients protection if their medical facility goes into insolvency or ceases to operate for any other reason. The rules in question may also include minimum training requirements for surgeons carrying out all cosmetic procedures and psychological screening to ensure that people are not seeking to solve mental health issues through surgery.

“We welcome and support the Department of Health’s efforts”, states Mr Bryan Mayou, founder of the Cadogan Clinic. “Due to our concern over their quality we have never allowed the use of PIP implants at The Cadogan Clinic.”

The Cadogan Clinic has a choice of close to forty consultants including dermatologists, plastic surgeons and vascular surgeons. The Cadogan Clinic, which is a centre of excellence for liposuction, breast augmentation and general cosmetic surgery, is proud to have the likes of consultants such as Mr Bryan Mayou, a pioneer in liposuction, Mr Patrick Mallucci, one of the UK’s leading breast surgeons, and Mr Nick Parkhouse, who is a specialist in labiaplasty and correcting poor surgery results. “As a clinic, our policy has always been to only allow consultants who are approved by our medical advisory committee ensuring they have the best qualification,” points out Mr Mayou. “In addition, all patients must have a face to face consultation with the surgeon prior to be treated”, he adds.

The Cadogan Clinic, as a leading cosmetic surgery clinic, puts an emphasis on patient safety and comfort, and has always been committed to providing patients with the best aesthetic results without compromising their health. The Cadogan Clinic therefore employs only the most qualified of professionals, the most advanced of techniques and products of the highest quality.
The Cadogan Clinic encourages patients to participate in the DOH review by sharing their cosmetic treatment views and experiences.
