Insurance for cosmetic surgery plans

20th January 2012

Sir Bruce Keogh, who is leading the government review into PIP implants, has revealed that an insurance scheme for cosmetic surgery patients could be introduced after the ongoing breast implants scandal.

He said that such a scheme would protect consumers. At present, there is no clear evidence PIP implants cause harm, although the NHS has stated that it will remove and replace those it fitted. However, private patients have been told my most clinics they must pay for the procedure.
