Law Matters Podcast Cosmetic Surgery Reforms and Ongoing Concern of Rogue Practitioners with Ngaire Watson

On the face of it, there’s been a crackdown on cosmetic surgery. But is it enough to keep rogue practitioners from causing harm to unsuspecting patients?

In this episode of Law Matters, Practice Leader of Health Law, Rosemary Listing, talks to barrister and nurse, Ngaire Watson. Ngaire specialises in health and medical litigation and is also a spokesperson on health law and medical negligence with the Australian Lawyers Alliance.

Rosemary and Ngaire discuss the problems within the cosmetic surgery sector and how several reforms introduced in 2023 will impact the industry from a health and safety perspective.

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • About the different reforms that have been introduced for cosmetic surgery, specifically around advertising, online presence and the use of the word ‘surgeon’
  • Why rogue practitioners are so difficult to police
  • What options are available if you’ve been a victim of cosmetic surgery gone wrong.
