In September 2020, the Committees of Advertising Practice (CAP) began a consultation on the banning of cosmetic surgery advertisements aimed at young people under the age of 18.
Having surgery is an incredibly important decision that can give you life changing results. That is why surgeons have a duty to be responsible and ethical in their application. At Suffolk Breast Practice, our patients’ welfare is at the heart of our service.
