GMC warns patients not to take risks for a 'beach body'

The General Medical Council (GMC) has warned people considering cosmetic interventions in search of a ‘beach ready’ body to think twice before embarking on what could be risky procedures.

A year after the GMC’s new standards came into force – ensuring doctors work safely and putting a stop to high pressure sales techniques and two-for-one deals which encourage consumers to make unwise or hasty decisions – the GMC is urging would-be patients to use caution and common sense.
