New cosmetic surgery rules

    In lieu of the current scenario where general practitioners perform cosmetic surgery operations, the provincial College of Physicians and Surgeons in Ontario, Canada, approved two regulatory changes just recently in order to address the issue at hand. 

    One of the new rules to be implemented requires doctors to be formally certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada before they can use the title 'surgeon.'  This is to ensure that all physicians who perform delicate plastic surgeries are well-trained to do the operation.

    Violating these new rules would constitute professional misconduct, which will be subject to disciplinary proceedings.

    This is indeed a very good move from that governing body in Canada in order to prevent physicians from doing things beyond their field of expertise. This is also a very good way to protect clients who want to enhance their looks through plastic surgery.

    It has been said that the success of a plastic surgery operation lies heavily on the expertise of the plastic surgeon, therefore, it is just proper to ensure that the person holding that scalpel really knows what he is doing.
