Consultation closes for cosmetic surgery review

19 Apr 2022

The public consultation for the Independent review of the regulation of health practitioners in cosmetic surgery has now closed.

Over the six-week consultation the Independent Reviewer received more than 550 responses to the consumer survey and 230 submissions.

‘I’d like to thank all those who made the time to share their views and experiences with cosmetic surgery. Your contribution is important and will help inform the report and recommendations we make to improve patient safety in this area,’  Independent Reviewer, Andrew Brown, said.

The Independent Reviewer will report his findings and recommendations to Ahpra and the Medical Board of Australia mid-2022. 

Further information about the review and process can be found on the review page.
