Cosmetic Surgery Claims

Woman with lines drawn on face to undergo surgery
In recent years, cosmetic surgery has grown in popularity in the UK, with an increasing number of people undergoing the knife. Whether you are undergoing treatment for health or cosmetic purposes you expect to receive the highest level of care throughout the procedure.

The consequences of botched cosmetic surgery can be devastating, causing an individual emotional and physical distress.

Cosmetic surgeries include:

  • Facelifts
  • Nose reshaping
  • Breast reduction
  • Breast enlargement
  • Gastric band surgery or Tummy tucks

Why cosmetic surgery negligence occurs

Doctors and nurses can make mistakes whilst a patient is undergoing and recovering from cosmetic procedures.

Although contracting an infection is not always the fault of the medical staff, medical staff often fail to notice an infection, which can cause a patient’s condition to deteriorate.

If you have undergone cosmetic surgery that has gone wrong and you’ve been left with injuries or below standard results, you could be entitled to claim compensation.

Examples of cosmetic surgery claims include:

  • Not receiving sufficient information about the risks
  • Deflective products were used (such as damaged or faulty implants)
  • You were not provided with the right aftercare
  • Complications during the surgery, (damages to nerves, organs and arteries)
