Doctors performing breast implant surgery in NSW will face tough new guidelines aimed at protecting patients after decades of complaints about dangerous practices and botched operations that have left women suffering years in pain. 3/30/22
Here is part of the article.
Mark Ashton, former president of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons said the NSW guidelines would pave the way for the national regulator to assess whether doctors are operating within accepted standards of care.
“It is the first time any state has had a comprehensive breast implant guide available in a public document that clearly states what we expect medical practitioners to do, and how we expect doctors to behave,” said Professor Ashton who is a co-author of the NSW guidelines. “It helps patients understand what they should be asking when they go for that first consultation.”
