For those considering a cosmetic procedure, the process can be daunting but a brochure produced by the Australasian College of Cosmetic Surgery (ACCS) might be helpful.

ACCS

To further its patient safety mission, the ACCS has initiated a consumer information campaign to raise awareness about the types of questions that anyone considering a cosmetic medical or surgical procedure should ask. These questions are summarised in a useful patient information brochure.

This comprehensive patient information brochure “Things you should know” covers all the details you need to make an informed choice. It covers questions you should ask your doctor and yourself, what to do when things go wrong,  choosing a doctor, the risks and complications as well as explaining the differences between cosmetic and plastic and reconstructive surgery and ACCS accreditations.
