What is cosmetic surgery negligence?

Cosmetic surgery negligence is the failure of a healthcare provider to provide a reasonable standard of care to a patient during the course of cosmetic surgery. It can be the result of an incorrect diagnosis, improper treatment, or lack of informed consent.

A cosmetic surgery negligence claim can relate to:

  • Plastic surgery
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Breast surgery
  • Nose surgery
  • Ear surgery
  • Corrective surgery
  • Cosmetic dentistry

Negligence from these kinds of cosmetic procedures can lead to serious medical complications, disfigurement and even death in some cases. You may be entitled to a medical negligence claim for some non-surgical cosmetic treatments, so contact us to find out if you can claim compensation.

It is important for patients to understand their rights and seek legal advice if they believe that they have been subjected to cosmetic surgery negligence.

You may be entitled to make a cosmetic surgery claim if you have suffered from complications as a result of negligent cosmetic or plastic surgery.

How to make a cosmetic surgery claim for compensation

Facelift or Rhytidectomy is a procedure in which the sagging or loose skin is tightened around the jaw, neck or mouth to give a tighter, smoother and more youthful appearance.

A facelift helps to tighten the skin on your face and neck from your eyes and ears downwards. The surgeon will make a surgical cut in your hairline, down past the front of your ears and then up into the hairline again behind your ears. The surgeon may also make cuts under your chin if you want your jawline lifted.

The risks associated with face or neck lifts are:

  • Bleeding – may result in further surgery to stop bleeding and remove blood clots
  • Swelling
  • Nerve damage
  • Uneven appearance

If you have had complications following a face or neck lift, you may be entitled to claim compensation. Our all-female team of solicitors will be able to help you throughout your claim. You can rest assured you’ll have a specialist cosmetic surgery solicitor guiding you through every step of the cosmetic surgery claims process.

As well as claiming for any pain, suffering and inconvenience, you may be able to claim back additional costs such as:

Remedial surgery – if you have to have your surgery corrected, the additional cost involved could form part of the claim against the surgeon or company that carried out the original operation.

Loss of income – if you need to take additional days off work or you are unable to go back to work due to the negligence of the surgeon or company carrying out the procedure, your loss of income will form part of your claim.

Remedial Treatment – if you need to have corrective surgery, the additional cost involved could form part of your compensation claim against the surgeon or company responsible for your original injury.

All surgery procedures come with risks, yet if the cosmetic surgeon was negligent and this negligence caused injury or prolonged suffering, you may be able to claim compensation.
