Another cosmetic surgery clinic has been closed by its owners, after recent legal action made the business unsustainable.

The shut down comes amid news that Australia’s cosmetic surgery sector is shrinking, since people are more willing to access cosmetic surgery in Asia.

Cosmetic clinics are currently an unregulated environment, as they are not required to pass the clinical sterility standards found in other medical facilities. The practitioners also do not need much training.
