Do I need a GP referral for a tummy tuck?

You do not need a referral from your GP to have a tummy tuck. Your surgeon may however, contact your GP so that they can get your full medical history from them.

However, it's important to note that some medical conditions may need to be signed off by your GP prior to have the tummy tuck procedure. But your Patient Care Adviser will be able to let you know if this applies for you.
