Our medical negligence solicitors specialise in cosmetic surgery claims, recovering substantial damages for clients on a No Win, No Fee basis.
Cosmetic surgery is any surgical procedure performed for the purposes of appearance and, as with any surgical procedure, carries risks such as infection and complications with the anaesthetic. Problematic is the number of people presenting themselves as cosmetic surgery experts since regulation is limited.
Cosmetic surgery claims often include the associated psychological factors involved. The impact of negligent cosmetic surgery can far exceed that of other surgical negligence claims.
Cosmetic surgery claims include:
- Plastic Surgery
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery)
- Facial Scar Revision
- Forehead Lift
- Hair Replacement
- Laser Surgery
- Mentoplasty (chin surgery)
- Otoplasty (ear surgery)
- Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)
- Rhytidectomy (face surgery)
- Skin Resurfacing
- Breast Implant
Negligence by medical practitioners can cause:
- 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 also occur during simple procedures such as botox injections and forehead lifts.
