Our faces are often the most defining feature of our appearance. People undergo face surgery for a number of reasons; it could be to remedy a birth defect, to defy the aging process or just to give themselves a confidence boost.
Whether it’s a nose job, facelift, eyelift or something entirely different, where can you turn to when that surgery did not go to plan and you didn’t receive the result you expected? Here at Patient Claim Line we are here to help if for any reason you feel that the surgeon carrying out your face surgery procedure has been negligent and we can take control of your case – leaving you to focus on your recovery.
You may be able to claim in the event of:
• Unnecessary scarring
• Infections to the area
• Breathing difficulties
• Excess skin removed resulting in loss of function to the area
• Nerve damage
• Persistent localised pain
With medical negligence, every case is different and this list is not exhaustive. Our specialised cosmetic claims lawyers will be on hand ready to review your individual case if you decide to proceed. It costs absolutely nothing to find out whether you have a case and you may also be able to claim for other expenses incurred by the negligent treatment such as loss of earnings and medical expenses putting the problem right.

Making a claim for negligent face surgery
Our specialist cosmetic surgery solicitors understand the physical and the psychological impact of negligent facial surgery. When your surgeon has performed your procedure without the expected due diligence, you may be entitled to claim compensation for your distress. When a cosmetic procedure on your face; such as rhinoplasty, a face lift or jaw augmentation goes wrong, there are many wide reaching implications.
You may suffer long-lasting pain as a result of the negligent cosmetic surgery, or you may have to have further surgeries to repair the damage caused by the original procedure. You may also find deeper, psychological impacts of the surgery. The procedure may have caused disfigurement that affects your confidence. It may also lead to anxiety or panic attacks, if the procedure was particularly traumatic. All of these implications will count towards your compensation claim for negligent face surgery.
At Patient Claim Line, we are specialist solicitors and medical experts too. Our team can take the stress and complication out of the claims process, by guiding you through the process at all times.
Throughout your face surgery claim, we will be with you every step every way. Get in touch now and we will endeavour to put this right together.

Frequently asked questions about Facial Surgery Claims
Our expert legal team answer your questions about making a Facial Surgery Claim
It may still be completely possible to pursue your facial surgery negligence claim, even if the surgery took place abroad. There may be some barriers which could impede your claim however, such as different laws, cultures, and languages. In some places longer waiting times for a procedure may be expected as well.
When making a claim for facial surgery, you should make a claim within three years of the negligence occurring or from when the effects of negligence first appear. In cases involving anyone under 18, the legal case must be pursued within three years from the date of their 18th birthday.
At Patient Claim Line we work on a ‘no win no fee’ basis, therefore if your cosmetic facial surgery claim is unsuccessful your solicitor does not get paid and will write off their fees under the terms of the ‘No Win No Fee’ agreement.
If your claim is successful, your opponent pays your legal fees. Under the terms of the conditional fee agreement, solicitors are entitled to deduct a percentage of your fee. The percentage the solicitor deduct is decided upon a case-by-case basis. Rest assured; this is always agreed upfront prior to any paperwork being signed.

Christian qualified as a solicitor in 1998, specialising in clinical negligence. From 2010 onward he has had a particular interest in gynaecological and urogynaecological claims, having represented several hundred claimants in the George Rowland Litigation against the Liverpool Women’s and Aintree Hospitals. This investigated the treatment given to women in the Merseyside area over several decades, and in particular focused on the introduction and development of mesh into the UK in both the treatment of stress urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The development of this area involved pursuing claims under a unique ADR protocol with the NHS and also looking to develop the current thinking on the valuation of compensation for complex urinary symptoms. He has successfully recovered hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation on behalf of my clients.
Christian was also involved in setting up and chairing a Claimant Support Group for those involved in the Rowland litigation, which provided a discussion forum for the many women who were left isolated and damaged by negligent gynaecological treatment. He now co-ordinates the firm’s mesh claims and has delivered training and commented extensively on the medico-legal implications of urogynaecological / mesh complications. He is a member of APIL, Liverpool Law Society and Legal 500 recommended.

"He's always there for us"
At the age of 2 we noticed our son Vincent had trouble with his hearing. We had this testing over a number of years and were repeatedly told there was nothing wrong.
Initially we thought this was a speech and language problem, this wasn't the case. It took 4 to 5 years of assessments, with the constant response that there was nothing wrong with his hearing. A different test was them carried on Vincent overnight where it was found he was profoundly deaf.
After years of frustration we were finally able to provide Vincent with the support he required and received an implant. This has enable Vincent to be able to hear. The support from our solicitors has enabled to to gain access to specialist which have supported Vincent in closing the gap in his speech he lost out on to his peers.
