Can I have liposuction on the NHS?

Probably not. The NHS has finite resources and money is allocated to where there is the greatest need. There are so many competing demands for funding and that need is growing in line with rising public expectations.

Treatment is prioritised and the higher up the list of priorities the more likely you are to get funding. Unfortunately, cosmetic surgery is very often seen as a ‘lifestyle option’; that it’s a form of treatment that people choose to have rather than a vital medical need.

You need to be able to demonstrate the benefits of this treatment to what is, a cash strapped service.

This is not to put you off, rather just to make you aware of the issues with this. It is a good idea to discuss this issue with your family GP. He or she will be sympathetic to your needs and can advise you about this.
