Do I need a GP referral for liposuction surgery?

Your surgeon will not require you to provide a GP referral in order to have liposuction. They may, however, contact your GP practice to get a record of your medical history. This will help clarify if you are fit for surgery.

It's important to note that certain medical conditions may need to be signed off by a GP before you're able to have surgery. Your Patient Care Adviser will let you know if this applies to you.
