Dutch plastic surgeons support age limit on cosmetic surgery

Dutch plastic surgeons have given their support to health minister Edith Schippers in her call for an age limit on cosmetic surgery and for health warnings to be made by television make-over shows.

The plastic surgery association says that while its members already adhere to an 18 age limit, non-members are free to do what they want. ‘It would be good if our rules became enshrined in law,’ a spokeswoman is quoted as saying by website nu.nl.
