AMMAN — The Jordan Food and Drug Administration(JFDA), the Ministry of Health, the Doctors’ Syndicate, and law enforcement agencies have formed a committee to inspect clinics where plastic surgery violations have been reported, according to Omar Al-Shobaki, president of the Jordanian Society for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.


Shobaki urged the authorities to combat “violations by fraudulent plastic surgeons”, stressing that laser operations and liposuction treatments must be performed by qualified and licensed doctors, a local news outlet reported.


“Failed plastic surgery results in divorces and the destruction of families, all because of greed on the part of plastic surgeons,” Shobaki said, noting that the society has detected “many cases of violations” in recent months.


The society president expressed hopes that Minister of Health Firas Al-Hawari will create a department to oversee plastic surgery.


Last year, JFDA Director-General, Nizar Muhaidat, set up a technical committee to oversee laser, X-ray, and LASIK devices.اضافة اعلان
