Cheap breast implants marketed to women on welfare, with devastating consequences

ABC.net.au | News | 13 August 2018

Featured on the ABC’s website recently was an alarming story on low-cost breast implant surgeries being performed by ‘cosmetic surgeons’ and the complications that can occur following surgery.

The story further highlights the impact Australia’s lack of regulations has surrounding ‘cosmetic surgeons’ and their unofficial title, which misleads patients and can jeopardise their health.

All Assure Cosmetic Centre doctors are fully-accredited Specialist Plastic Surgeons, with 12+ years of medical training and experience. They are members of the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and Fellows of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS Plast).

To be confident you’re in safe hands, it is important to choose the right type of doctor.

You can check the official register of Specialist Plastic Surgeons by visiting the ASPS website. If your doctor is not listed, it means they are not a Specialist Plastic Surgeon.
