And so should you!
Cosmetic procedures when performed for the right reasons and carried out by the appropriate professionals in established medical facilities can be a life enriching experience for many.
At the moment, it is accessible to children and adults and for people from all socio-economic groups. This could all change if we do not stand up to the recent HMRC threats to slap a tax on all cosmetic procedures.
- People who may benefit from this procedure will be put off by the significant increase in fee
- Others will be forced to seek cheaper options overseas
- The UK aesthetic industry which has remained bouyant during this period of economic downturn will suffer as both surgeons and clinicsstop work and employment.
- The number of complications from unvalidated and unvetted treatments overseas will increase. The burden of correcting these will fall on the individuals or the nation via the NHS.
- Relatively simple and affordable procedures which have been effective in keeping people happy, confident and competitive in the workforce will be taken away at a time when it is especially important for people to have this to lift them out of the depression of the economic uncertainties.
