Plastic surgery ads should be banned

21st September 2012

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) has said that cosmetic surgery advertisements aimed at people aged under 18 should be banned.

BAAPS says vulnerable people need to be protected from feeling pressured into having surgery with its plea coming at a time that the Department of Health is reviewing the regulations around cosmetic surgery. BAAPS has sent 12 recommendations to advertising regulator, the Committee of Advertising Practice, to consider but its preference is for a complete ban on cosmetic surgery advertising.
