Cosmetic Surgery Claims

We've got your cosmetic surgery claim covered

Regardless of the reason for electing to undergo a cosmetic procedure, it is important that any risks are fully explained to you by the surgeon before you agree to proceed. The surgeon should also advise you on rehabilitation and recovery times after surgery. If these things are not adhered to, then you may be the victim of negligent treatment.

Cosmetic surgery has never been more popular, with tummy tucks, breast enhancements, rhinoplasty and liposuction now much more commonplace then they used to be. There are now a wide variety of options for those seeking to change their appearance. Cosmetic surgery is also often necessary for health or corrective reasons. In 2020, approximately 21 thousand cosmetic surgeries were carried out in the United Kingdom (UK).

If you feel that your surgeon has made a mistake, your procedure has not gone to plan, things were not properly explained to you or any error has been made, then you may be entitled to cosmetic surgery compensation, including claiming the cost of putting things right again.


WHAT KIND OF COMPLICATIONS CAN OCCUR FROM NEGLIGENT COSMETIC SURGERY?

The effects of negligent cosmetic surgery can not only affect you physically but could also impact you emotionally, especially when the outcome of your treatment is not what you expected. Below are some of the complications that might occur from negligent cosmetic surgery:

  • Implant faults – for example, if a faulty implant was used in your procedure, you may need to have the implant removed, requiring further surgery.
  • Surgical mistakes – errors in your cosmetic surgery could lead to scarring and disfigurement.
  • Infections – most surgical wounds heal normally without any complications. However, if you develop an infection due to negligent treatment, the consequences can be extremely serious. If your infection develops into sepsis for example, this can cause organs to shut down and can be fatal.
  • Allergies – if you developed an allergic reaction following cosmetic treatment, which was due to negligence, again this can have a serious impact on your health.

 

HOW MUCH COMPENSATION COULD I BE ENTITLED TO FOR A COSMETIC SURGERY CLAIM?

Every medical negligence case is different. However, in general, the amount of compensation depends on the length of time you have suffered for, and the impact that the error has had on your daily life.

If you were unable to work, we will recover any lost earnings for any period you were absent as a result of what happened. You may have needed family and friends to help out, or even professional care, and our team will make sure their time is compensated for as well.

We negotiated a settlement of £17,500 for our client, after failures during her breast augmentation resulted in two different sized implants being used.

Our specialist medical lawyers will use their experience to make sure that you receive the maximum amount of compensation you deserve.
