The latest figures show we also spent around $1 billion on enhancing our looks.

“I don’t think it’s as taboo as it used to be,” Chris Smith says.

But not everyone who undergoes a cosmetic procedure is happy with the end result.

He’s calling for change in the industry, saying more checks and balances are needed to protect patients.

“I’m justing saying it’s time to pause and look in the mirror as an industry and try and put some checks and balances in so the commercial considerations don’t outstrip patient focus and patient safety.

“At the end of the day we offer a lot of treatments to patients with some great benefits but let’s try and do it better.”
