Breast Enlargement and Uplift Surgery FAQs

Breast Enlargement and Uplift Surgery FAQs

Do I need a GP referral for breast enlargement and uplift surgery?

Generally, most surgeons will be happy to see you without a referral from your GP. However, there may be some complex medication expectations that may require a doctor's sign in order to ensure patient safety. Your Patient Care Adviser will be able to let you know if this applies to you.

It's important to know that if you plan to go ahead with your breast enlargement and uplift surgery, your surgeon will ask for permission to contact your GP. They will do this to request details of your medical history.

Will I need further surgeries after my breast enlargement and uplift?

You may choose to have further surgery in the future for a number of reasons. For example, you may decide to change the size, shape or type of implant you have. You may also need further surgery if certain problems arise. These problems may include implant rupture, capsular contracture and implant re-positioning. Due to huge improvements in implant durability, material, and design over the past two decades, problems like these are now very uncommon.
