Plastic surgery and cosmetic surgery are not the same thing. Many NHS hospitals have plastic surgeons working there to treat skin cancer, burns, hand injuries, breast cancer reconstruction, children’s birth defects and more.
Plastic surgeons working in the NHS often also offer cosmetic surgery which is safe because they are regulated strongly by their NHS hospital. See the list of Plastic & Reconstructive surgeons below. We only list memebrs of their national organisations which are the British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeon (BAPRAS) and the British Association of Aesthetic Surgeon (BAAPS). Both are based at the Royal College of Surgeons in London and paired with the national American organisations. [WPCR_INSERT]
