RCS Cosmetic Surgery Project
The RCS has undertaken work to introduce a voluntary certification process for surgeons undertaking cosmetic surgery. Surgeons will need to on the GMS Specialist Register, and provide evidence of their clinical skills, experience, professional skills and behaviour. Applicants will also attend a mandatory masterclass on professional skills in cosmetic surgery. Certification will be valid for a period of 5 years.
