Cosmetic surgery: Review to stamp out 'grubby practices'

An inquiry, led by the NHS's medical director will examine whether the rules governing plastic surgery in England should be tightened.

The inquiry was set up because of the safety scare involving breast implants made by the French firm, PIP.

Sir Bruce Keogh, head of the review, said he wants to establish appropriate regulation, as there are parts of the cosmetic surgery industry with some 'pretty grubby' practices going on.
