Dr Peter Forrester

Dr Peter Forrester has been involved in the cosmetic medical industry for more than 30 years; both a consultant anaesthetist with a particular interest in anaesthesia for cosmetic surgery and as a cosmetic doctor with expertise in non-invasive rejuvenation. This dual involvement gives him a unique insight into both surgical and non-surgical approaches. It is his opinion that our industry is crowded with products promising significant results but without good supporting evidence. Dr Forrester believes that doctors are ethically obliged to use their training to assess all the treatments they provide and only offer those that have been scientifically proven to be of benefit.
