29 January 2013:  I am pleased that my first posting is a positive one which comes from our British colleagues.  The Royal College of Surgeons  ( http://www.guardian.co.uk/society/2013/jan/29/royal-college-surgeons-cosmetic-surgery-guidelines ) has issued guidelines on who should be performing cosmetic procedures, the proper evaluation of patients and called for an end to offering financial incentives to entice people into surgery.  Bravo!!! (Of note: The American Society of Plastic Surgeons Code of Ethics has set similar standards for some of these items for many years.)
