Submission from the Christian Medical Fellowship (CMF) in response to a call for evidence concerning Cosmetic Procedures.
The availability and use of invasive cosmetic procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, to enhance or 'normalise' appearance has grown significantly in recent decades: both in terms of the number of procedures on offer and the numbers of people who choose to undergo them. The Nuffield Council on Bioethics has established a working party to explore the ethical issues that arise in connection with this increasing access to cosmetic procedures, and have issued a Call for Evidence to which CMF has responded.
