Simply put, no, you don’t need a GP referral to undergo cosmetic surgery. The only reason this would ever really be required is that if your GP has recommended that you have the surgery for medical reasons, and that the cost was covered by the NHS.

Generally, as soon as you feel fit to, you are encouraged to move around as soon as possible and focus on getting active again – however, advice on how to go about this will vary for the various cosmetic procedures. Ease back into your routine by eating well, too, and if you’re a smoker, quitting smoking. If you have an incision that has a dressing on it, then ensure that this is taken care of and that you follow all of the instructions that are suggested to you by your practitioner.
Again, this varies from procedure to procedure. Some can last a lifetime, whereas some procedures may need to be amended or upkept several years down the line. For example, facial augmentations such as rhinoplasties and otoplasties are typically associated with lifelong cosmetic benefits. However, with some other procedures such as breast augmentations, some people opt to have these updated after 10-15 years.
We totally understand. Luckily, we offer dermal fillers, which are a popular and almost immediate way to alter your appearance without necessarily committing to a lifelong change. These can be removed if you aren’t happy with them.
Smoking should be very much avoided. It increases the risk of complications during and after surgery, and renders the patient far more likely to have anaesthesia-related complications. On top of this, smoking can delay your recovery and the wounds are slower to heal.
Like all other forms of surgeries, plastic surgery also involves risks. However, these risks are entirely dependent on the procedure. If you are concerned or have any questions regarding a procedure in particular, do contact us.
Generally, there is no perfect age to undergo plastic surgery. However, it is viewed that most cosmetic procedures are best performed once the body has fully grown into its adult size. But again, this depends on the procedure that a client is undergoing.
A good candidate for cosmetic surgery is somebody that is already in good overall physical and psychological health; has realistic expectations for their procedure and a non-smoker.
In most cases, plastic surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and does not require an overnight hospital stay, unless specifically stated by your practitioner. With regards to arranging further help post-surgery, this is always a good idea – especially if you live alone. Not only will having somebody there allow them to monitor your progress and condition, but they will also be able to offer a helping hand performing day-to-day tasks should you not feel entirely comfortable.
