Aesthetic Medicine is a medical discipline, undertaken by registered medical practitioners, comprising a range of minor surgical and non-surgical procedures, performed under local or topical anaesthesia, to revise, enhance, treat or change the appearance, colour, texture, structure or position of the cutaneous, subcutaneous tissues or associated structures using techniques which combine both the medical and aesthetic considerations for the patient.

Cosmetic medical procedures should only be carried out by registered medical practitioners.

The BCAM aims to arm you with enough information about medical aesthetic procedures to enable you to make an informed decision about which treatment may be right for you and to make you aware of the importance of using a reputable and ethical Aesthetic doctor.
