Liposuction on the NHS?

  • 3 years ago

...Not quite.

You still can't get cosmetic liposuction covered under the United Kingdom's National Health Service (NHS). But now you can, in some circumstances, have a reconstructive procedure using your own body fat. The fat grafting procedure can be used to correct congenital abnormalities, cancer reconstruction and other medically-covered procedures. In the process, you lose some fat around your midsection or thighs (common donor areas).

What do you think -- has the NHS made the right decision, or should more traditional reconstructive surgeries be tried first?
