Baaps announced a fellowship training programme for cosmetic surgery at their annual meeting which I attended last week. It is very true indeed that training in the NHS is sadly lacking. Many cosmetic surgery procedures that were fairly common in the NHS even ten years ago are simply not undertaken there anymore. As such, newly qualified consultants begin private practice with very little if any training in certain procedures. This is not right. Hopefully, more fellowships will appear. BAAPS has started the ball rolling.
In my practice, I undertake procedures I am happy performing. Breast augmentation, facelift, abdominoplasty I do quite happily. However, due to the nature and complexity of Rhinoplasty, I chose not to undertake them, even though I can do them and am perfectly competent.
For a consultation in Warwick , Nuneaton or Coventry areas, please call me on 01926 436332 or 01926 436310
