Cosmetic Surgery is an important aspect of many Plastic Surgeons’ working lives. Private practice has more or less stopped in many areas of the UK as private hospitals’ services have been secured by an NHS struggling to treat cancer and trauma patients as a result of the COVID pandemic. This webinar explores the effects of COVID-19 on the practice of cosmetic surgery throughout the world, and provides insights into safe practice going forwards in the UK.
Future webinars will continue to address issues around developing best practice for the management of specific subspecialty areas of work.
