Research carried out in Finland has found that many people who have undergone cosmetic surgery procedures at clinics in the country are unhappy with the outcome. According to results of a study published yesterday by the Vli-Suomi newspaper group, one third of cosmetic surgery operations carried out in Finland are done in order to fix errors made during previous operations. The most popular procedures include liposuction, face lift operations and breast surgery. The Finnish Patient Insurance Centre, which deals with claims from patients who have suffered injuries, said it receives about 200 complaints every year which relate to errors made during cosmetic surgery procedures. The findings stand as a reminder to anyone thinking of undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures or non-surgical solutions, how important it is to find a clinic that adheres to rigorous standards of care and is fully registered with the appropriate bodies.
