Do I need a GP referral for facelift surgery?
The majority of patients do not need a GP referral to see a cosmetic surgeon for an initial facelift consultation. However, if you decide you want to go ahead with the procedure, your surgeon will require more detailed information on your medical history. In this case, they may contact your GP for this information, with your permission.
Certain medical conditions may also need a GP sign off prior to having the facelift surgery, but your Patient Care Adviser will let you know if this is necessary.
