There are often cases, in which the operation is not necessary from medical point of view, it might though help patients mentally. Most patients are quaranteed free procedures when corrective work after the accident is needed.
These are the questions asked by those who plan to undergo plastic operation. Cosmetic surgeries are mostly carried out in private clinics. Since majority of them are of aesthetic nature, patients have to cover them themselves.
NHS meets the costs for cosmetic surgeries only in cases induced by medical reasons. Doctor´s recommendation and assessment is essential in this matter. Psychological reasons might be as well considered to be a medical necessity.

It is important to say that NHS resources are limited and you might wait a long time to have it covered. Under special circumstances, CCG (Clinical commissioning group) may decide if cosmetic surgery is required and thus covered to improve patients health. However, these cases are quite rare.
A recent research uncovered also those women who are lying about their welfare and self-confidence trying to push doctors into cosmetic surgery on the NHS.
Some doctors do not resist this pressure any more and operate patients without medical grounds because they do not want to turn down their patients. No official figures are given how much money NHS spends on cosmetic procedures. It is up to authorities to ensure wise spending.
