Hi Lorraine,

 

I just wondered why rhinoplasty is acceptable & yet BOTOX is no

 

I'm guessing here, but I think some countries are more sensitive about pharmaceuticals than they are about surgical procedures.  From what I've heard about Singapore and the Phllippines, they are both very uptight about drugs.

 

Guessing again, the different regulation is probably because doctors are heavily regulated and licensed.  It's fairly easy to order drugs over the internet if you see an ad for them, but it's kind of hard to get a rhinoplasty over the internet.  (Without some radical new computer peripherals out of a science fiction story, anyway....)   Botox may be different, since it's usually injected in a doctor's office (I hope), but it's still technically a drug.  I could be totally wrong on this, though.  Who knows why governments do what they do?

 

Disclaimer: even though I work on AdWords at Google, I'm not a lawyer or policy expert and am just guessing on this.  I work on the systems for enforcing this stuff, but the systems enforce what our policy team and attorneys tell us to enforce.
