UK patients face risks having Cosmetic surgery abroad

More and more patients are travelling abroad for cheaper cosmetic surgery - with potentially dangerous consequences.

Vicki Osbourne from London opted to have tummy tuck and gastric band surgery in Belgium.

However when she returned to the UK, she found it difficult to seek treatment when she developed 'life threatening' complications.

Vicki told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire, "All of a sudden I started to get this acid reflux and drowning incidents in the night... Once things started to go wrong I didn't know who to turn to."
