Cosmetic surgery advice must be clearer, says study

the Good Surgeon Guide

Customers need more help when choosing how to go through with cosmetic surgery treatments, a new study suggests.

Research by the Good Surgeon Guide indicated that one in five people who consider going through with surgery will end up not doing it because there is too much information for them to take in.

Christina Clogg, co-founder of the website, stated that if customers could see honest feedback from other patients then they could make informed decisions an operation.

She urged people to contribute to the Good Surgeon Guide and help others make difficult decisions.

"We would encourage anybody who has had cosmetic surgery to spend a few moments to speak about their experience on the site," added Ms Clogg.

The study by the company also showed that ten times as many people had surgery last year as they did six years ago.

In 2008, 600,000 people had some form of cosmetic surgery.

This week, Katherine Griffiths from Cosmetic Surgery Today recommended researching a clinic before having any operations there.
