Cosmetic Surgery Project

The Commission is working to support reforms to the cosmetic surgery sector.


On 2 September 2022, Australian Health Ministers announced reforms to ensure doctors providing cosmetic surgeries are appropriately qualified and work to the highest health safety standards expected in Australia.

As part of these reforms, the Commission is developing a national licensing framework and safety and quality standards for facilities where cosmetic surgery is performed.

Extensive consultation is planned with consumers, clinicians, services, regulators, peak representative organisations and other key stakeholders throughout the project.

Public consultation on the draft safety and quality standards is planned for the first half of 2023.
