I am delighted with the outcome of my claim and can’t thank you enough for all the hard work that you put in. Everything went so smoothly and all I had to do was sign some papers and everything was taken care of. Anytime I had any concerns I knew I could call and my mind was always put at rest. You can never know how much this means to me and I am so grateful. If anything ever happened to me again then I would come straight to you.

Cosmetic surgery has witnessed a surge in popularity in recent years but unfortunately, alongside its appeal, there are cases where surgery has gone wrong for some. Those instances can bring about physical trauma and emotional stress. If the accident or mistake was as a result of negligence it is possible to pursue compensation for your injury.

Types of cosmetic surgery procedures

There are certain types of procedures that more commonly result in cosmetic surgery claims being pursued, including:

  • Breast surgery
  • Liposuction
  • Lip fillers
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Tummy tucks
  • Facelifts

Most operations do go as planned and most surgeons practice with integrity but there are risks involved in all surgical procedures. If those risks have not been explained to you beforehand or general standards of care have been neglected, and you have suffered as a result, you have a strong case for compensation.

Common mistakes made in cosmetic surgery

If you are not certain whether you have a valid claim, below are some of the frequent outcomes of poor cosmetic surgery that have resulted in compensation.

  • Scarring – there is always a risk of scarring in any operation. However, some scarring is extensive, unnecessary and can affect your life adversely in a number of ways. In addition, scarring can cause psychological damage.
  • Nerve damage following a facelift operation
  • Performing operations on the abdomen, such as tummy tuck procedures, can leave patients with a perforated bowel which can have a devastating effect on quality of life.

Who Can You Make Your Cosmetic Surgery Claim Against?

At the moment, the practice of cosmetic surgery is largely unregulated and, despite most surgeons being highly skilled in carrying out operations, there are some whose standards are considerably below what is acceptable.

If you are unhappy with the treatment you received then your claim will be against the establishment responsible for your procedure, for instance, the NHS or a private clinic. In some cases, you could claim against the individual surgeon who carried out the operation.
