Claim for Cosmetic Surgery
When to claim compensation for negligent cosmetic surgery.
We’ve been helping our clients with a wide variety of claims since 1877. This has included claims for cosmetic surgery, because while cosmetic surgery can often be life improving, we understand that sometimes things do not work out as promised.
It’s normal to want to know what constitutes negligence in this area, to see some examples of cosmetic malpractice, and to understand whether you’re entitled to make a claim.
The facts of cosmetic malpractice
Cosmetic surgery usually follows months of planning and careful consideration. You will have spent some time going over the positives, the negatives and finally come to the conclusion to go ahead with the surgery. This planning and preparation is often a fairly large part of the budget, but it’s worth it because it’s you. So you go into treatment, and rightly with certain expectations.
All professionals working on your cosmetic surgery are responsible for your health and wellbeing while you are in their care. You want the right amount of time to be taken over your treatment to minimise risks, you expect a clean and hygienic environment to prevent infection, and you need to depend on the judgment of the cosmetic professionals, who should make the best decisions for your safety.
To give you an idea of the variety of problems which can arise, the claims we have worked on in the past include infections, illnesses and injuries sustained from:
- Facial surgery
- Lip surgery
- Tummy tucks
- Breast enlargement
- Breast reduction
- Gender alignment
- Skin resurfacing
- Cosmetic dentistry
Even when a serious injury, illness, or worse has been sustained by negligence many people still feel as if they should not put in their claim.
Yet we rightly expect cosmetic professionals to give us the best chance to leave the surgery looking great and feeling well. When this does not happen the problem can stem from negligence, and when you have been neglected by a cosmetic professional, it’s your right to make a claim.
