Cosmetic Surgery Negligence

Cosmetic surgery is any surgical procedure performed for the purposes of appearance. Reconstructive surgery is a form of cosmetic surgery. This is one example of how cosmetic surgery is not only superficial and beautifying. It fills the purpose of allowing those whom have disfigured portions of their body to regain their self-esteem by undergoing cosmetic procedures.

As with any surgical procedure, cosmetic surgery carries with it certain risks, such as infection and complications with the anaesthetic. As the number of procedures undertaken rises, so will the number of adverse outcomes and, naturally, the number of cosmetic surgery claims.

A worrying problem with cosmetic surgery is the number of people holding themselves out as cosmetic surgery experts. Unfortunately, anyone can set up a cosmetic surgery practice.

Cosmetic surgery claims stand out from other surgical negligence claims due to the psychological factors that poor cosmetic surgery carries with it. The impact of negligent cosmetic surgery can often far exceed that of other surgical negligence claims.


There are many different types of cosmetic surgery, including:

  • Plastic Surgery
  • Blepharoplasty (Surgery of the Eyelids)
  • Facial Scar Revision
  • Forehead Lifts
  • Hair Replacement
  • Laser Surgery
  • Mentoplasty (Surgery of the Chin)
  • Otoplasty (Surgery of the Ears)
  • Rhinoplasty (Surgery of the Nose)
  • Rhytidectomy (Surgery of the Face)
  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Breast Implants

Our medical negligence team deal with a wide range of cosmetic surgery claims due to medical negligence. Negligence by doctors and nurses have caused:

  • Nerve damage
  • Poor results
  • Injuries due to the retention of medical instruments
  • Unexpected and avoidable scarring
  • Perforated bowel caused by liposuction

A cosmetic surgery mistake can even occur with simple cosmetic procedures like botox injections or forehead lifts.
