Plastic Surgery (GP information)


Plastic surgery carries out a wide range of procedures on all parts of the human body. Essentially, we use surgery to try to restore the appearance and/or function of the body after it has been damaged or distorted as a result of birth defects, disease or injury. For example, we can reconstruct parts of the face which are damaged as a result of surgery to remove skin cancer or help to close wounds after road traffic accidents.

We do not routinely perform cosmetic surgery on the NHS (e.g. facelifts, breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, breast reduction, gynaecomastia reduction or tummy tucks). If your main concern is likely to involve this type of surgical intervention then you may have to seek help privately.
