The Harley Medical Group, leading cosmetic surgery provider, highlights the importance for patients do some homework and seek a reputable cosmetic surgeon in light of glamour girls' 100 ops claim.
Self confessed cosmetic surgery addict, Alicia Douvall, hit UK screens as part of the 'Rehab' series on Living TV. The UK glamour girl has admitted to undergoing 100 cosmetic operations and is now seeking help at a Rehab clinic to confront her body dysmorphia which has resulted in an addiction to plastic surgery.
Alicia talked in depth about her numerous operations which led to British Surgeons barring her from having cosmetic surgery in the UK. The UKs leading cosmetic surgery provider, The Harley Medical Group has spoken out to say that these surgeons offered too little help too late to a clearly vulnerable patient who should not have been allowed to get into this position. The Harley Medical Group has stated that reputable cosmetic surgeons should always ensure that a responsibility to the patient is at the forefront of their minds. With this in mind the group has launched cosmetic surgery patient guidelines stressing the importance of seeking a reputable plastic surgery clinic.
To help prevent similar situations from occurring in the future, The Harley Medical Group urges patients that with thousands of surgeons operating across the UK it is important for them to do their homework before booking an operation, in order to ensure they receive the correct and most appropriate treatment and after care service with fully qualified medical practitioners.
