Complaints about plastic surgery on rise

LOCAL consumer watchdog today warned people of high risks of plastic surgery carried out by beauty parlors and unlicensed clinics.

The Shanghai Commission of Consumer Rights and Interests said it has received more than 200 complaints about plastic surgery this year, nearly 20 percent of all complaints concerning the beauty industry. Most of the cases happened in beauty parlors unqualified to do such operations, officials said.

A consumer, surnamed Lu, said that when she was having face massage in a parlor, an employee promoted nose hump service to her, saying the operation involved only a few injections. Lu believed and paid 12,500 yuan (US$1,890). She also spent another 12,000 yuan for anti-wrinkle injections on the forehead and canthus. But three days later, Lu suffered from skin allergy and muscle cramp on the face.

Lu said she had never asked about the solution's composition before the injections.
And last month, a 24-year-old singer named Wang Bei died during an operation to shave her jawbones.

The commission said people should not trust ads and should go to qualified hospitals to do plastic surgery and sign an agreement with the hospital before receiving the operation or it would be hard for them to protect their rights.
