Welcome to Safer Cosmetic Surgery

Welcome to Safer Cosmetic Surgery, your online guide to cosmetic surgery. Throughout the website we aim to provide comprehensive information about safety, questions to ask during consultations, and where to get further information about your chosen cosmetic surgery procedures.

We are happy to give general information or specific information based on your own personal concerns and requirements, whether you are having a face lift, tummy tuck surgery, or anything else.. We do however suggest face-to-face consultations with an accredited surgeon to make sure that all your questions are answered in a thorough and professional manner, making sure you are receiving the best advice possible.

No operation is 100% safe, but safer cosmetic surgery is possible by choosing an accredited and experienced surgeon. Here at Safer Cosmetic Surgery we have a search facility helping you find your closest BAAPS and/or BAPRAS registered surgeon. These surgeons are amongst the UK's leading and award-winning surgeons. By providing detailed and accurate information and surgeons, our aim is to make cosmetic surgery safer.

Explore this site to get reliable information from the UK's leading plastic & cosmetic surgeons who:

  • Are experienced UK cosmetic surgeons.
  • Have undertaken a minimum of 18 years' education and training.
  • Have at least 15 years of surgical training after the completion of medical school.

Please remember that results following surgery cannot be guaranteed. The choice of cosmetic surgeon may be the most important decision you make. However, it is important to have realistic expectations about possible results and be honest about your reasons for having surgery. It will surprise you to know that any doctor in the UK is allowed to perform cosmetic surgery procedures if the patient consents to the operation.  It is therefore important that you specifically ask about your surgeon's training and experience.
