Although the majority of people greatly benefit from cosmetic surgery, the industry is not fully regulated like other sectors of the healthcare industry and as a result, negligence can occur which can give rise to cosmetic surgery or aesthetic surgery claims. We understand that people often undergo cosmetic surgery to increase self-confidence, so the consequences of failed or negligent practices can have long term devastating effects on an individual.
If you’ve been unfortunate enough to undergo a failed cosmetic procedure, then you may able to claim against your cosmetic surgeon for compensation.
How We Can Help You With Your Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim
Our cosmetic surgery solicitors have vast experience in dealing with cosmetic and aesthetic surgery compensation claims. All medical practitioners, including those carrying out cosmetic and aesthetic surgery and their associated procedures have a duty of care to their patients. This means that they should take all reasonable precautions to ensure your safety under their care, including carrying out procedures safely and correctly.
Whilst no procedure comes without risk, if the medical team responsible for your procedure have not carried out this duty of care and the following has occurred, then you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation against them:
- lack of information about the risks and side effects of the procedure
- the procedure was not performed to the expected standard
- a defective or faulty product was used
- lack of adequate aftercare.
Common Cosmetic/aesthetic Surgery Compensation Claims
We have successfully claimed compensation for many people who contacted us after suffering or being injured following cosmetic surgery. Cosmetic surgery compensation claims can be a result of problems arising from:
- failure to obtain informed consent
- breast enlargement or reductions
- nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)
- brow lifts
- laser skin resurfacing
- cosmetic dentistry
- serious complications after fillers, laser treatments, botox and other cosmetic injections
- tummy tucks or gastric band surgery.
When medical negligence occurs, this can be traumatic. An investment that was meant towards a more confident and improved lifestyle can lead to regret, scarring, psychological problems, reduced quality of life, ill health and also loss of income.
Our cosmetic surgery solicitors have the complex legal knowledge required to help you every step of the way and we will fight to ensure that compensation covers any corrective procedure and psychological rehabilitation.
Our aim is to help you achieve justice, raise clinical standards and get you the compensation you deserve to enable you to get back to where you were prior to the negligence occurring.
Thank you for dealing with my case. I appreciate the work and result of this matter.
