The warning from The Sydney Cosmetic Clinic follows that of Dr John Flynn, Censor-in Chief at The Australasian

concerned about the continued growth of ‘cosmetic surgery tourism’ after the reported death of a Victorian man after

cosmetic surgery in Malaysia. A further Australian has died in Malaysia just two months ago while having cosmetic

surgery there, as reported by the ABC on 18th December 2017.

Dr Flynn noted in the ACCS release, “The standards of care and facility safety in Australia are the highest in the region.

One has to question the wisdom of increasing risks to health and welfare to get a holiday or save a few dollars.”

Sydney Cosmetic Clinic’s Principal Cosmetic Surgeon, Dr George Mayson endorses the warning by the ACCS that

risks to ‘cosmetic tourism’ may include:

increased risk of complications infection

Increased risk of complications, infection and impacts on general health particularly with older people where

complications are more likely to occur;

Difficulty in assessing doctors’ qualifications and training;

Difficulty or impossibility of a consultation with the surgeon prior to surgery including potential language barriers;

The opportunity for follow-up care is reduced along with protocols for continuity of care;

Travel and surgery don’t mix well: there is an increased risk of post-operative Deep Venous Thrombosis (Leg

Clots) during the flight home;

Revision Surgery could be required and this can be problematic when the operating surgeon is thousands of miles

away. This increases risks and costs for patients and potentially to the public health care system as well;

Unsatisfactory results are very difficult to redress legally or through other avenues such as State Health Care

Complaints Commissions;

Australian anaesthetists are among the best in the world and this reduces the risk of complications arising

from anaesthesia, and;

Australian Fellowship-Accredited Cosmetic Surgeons, specifically trained in Cosmetic Surgery procedures, are among

the best in the world.

The City Weekly, in researching the risks of cosmetic procedures in foreign countries has found numerous disturbing

reported instances of lives being put in danger. These have included the need to remove tubes and other foreign

objects from patients on their return to Australia. Australian Surgeons have also had to remove mis-matched implants

and even "tester" sample implants from patients inserted by overseas surgeons. These “test sample” implants are not

intended for human use and if leak could cause serious complications or possibly death.
