In general, fat removal procedures such as liposuction will not be available on the NHS for free. In most cases, the reasons behind such treatment are purely cosmetic. There are also valid alternatives to liposculpture procedures, such as losing weight naturally.

However, in certain instances, lipoplasty may be carried out on the NHS for free. If a patient can demonstrate that a certain area of fat is having an adverse affect on her life, treatment may be offered.

Liposculpture procedures may also be carried out on the NHS if an area of fat is causing a serious health risk to the patient. Such instances are rare, and most NHS trusts and hospitals will still be reluctant to offer treatment.
