Cosmetic Surgery Claims We Assist With:

Not properly informed of the risks

It is a legal requirement for a surgeon to properly explain the risks of the procedure before the patient undergoes treatment. This process allows the patient to consider the implications of the surgery and to decide whether to go 'under the surgeon's knife' or not. Sadly this is not every patient's experience.

If you feel you were not properly informed about the procedure and as a consequence suffered unnecessarily you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

The treatment is not performed to expected standards

It is reasonable to expect clinicians and surgeons to perform cosmetic surgery to acceptable professional standards especially if you are paying for the privilege, and yet this is not always the case. 

If you have suffered because of a lack of duty of care you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Failed to be given appropriate aftercare

It is important that patients receive appropriate aftercare following cosmetic surgery. Good aftercare can help to reassure patients, promote faster recovery, and help prevent complications such as infection. Unfortunately, not every patient is so lucky.

If you have been affected by unacceptable standards of aftercare you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Botched surgery or treatment

Cosmetic surgeons employ high levels of skill performing intricate and often complex operations. Although many procedures are successfully carried out, things do not always go to plan as some patients are harmed by surgical errors and negligent care.

If you have been injured following botched cosmetic surgery you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

The treatment is performed by an unqualified or unsuitable person

It is fair to expect cosmetic surgery to be carried out by suitably qualified individuals. Performing cosmetic surgery requires good levels of skill, experience, and continuing professional development to help reduce the risk of patient harm. Sadly, this is not always the case.

If you have suffered because cosmetic surgery was carried out by an unsuitable or unqualified person you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Pressurised to undergo cosmetic surgery

The Cosmetic surgery market is a high-stakes multi-billion pound industry. Fierce marketing techniques and sharp practices are often used to pressurise customers into agreeing to surgery. The competition to attract new business can benefit customers, but this is not always the case.

If you have been injured following cosmetic surgery and you feel pressurised into consenting to the procedure you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Offered a financial inducement to agree to the treatment

The fight to attract new customers is fierce with providers usually employing a range of sales and marketing techniques. It is a legal requirement that cosmetic surgery customers are not offered financial inducements to secure which contravenes 'informed consent' regulations. Sadly this is not always the case.

If you have been harmed by cosmetic surgery after being offered a financial inducement you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Defective or faulty products used

It is reasonable to expect products and devices used in cosmetic surgery to be safe and work properly after all customers are paying for the privilege. Unfortunately, this is not always the case when some patients suffer unnecessarily.

If you have been harmed by faulty implants or defective cosmetics or other faulty products you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Costs of the treatment not fully disclosed

It is a legal responsibility that before cosmetic surgery is carried out surgeons and clinicians must inform patients of all the costs associated with the treatment to allow them to decide whether to consent to the procedure or not. Unfortunately, this is not always the situation and some people are harmed when they may have decided not to have the treatment if they had been fully aware of the costs beforehand.

If you have suffered because of a lack of 'informed' consent you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

The treatment causes excessive scarring

Cosmetic surgery practitioners normally find out what the patients wish to achieve by the procedure before they go under the knife. Frequently procedures are performed to improve appearance and self-confidence. Sadly sometimes things go wrong.

If you have suffered excessive scarring because of negligent treatment you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Failing to carry out tests before treatment

Some cosmetic treatments require practitioners to carry out tests on the patient to determine if they are suitable for the treatment or not. Unfortunately, this is not always the case and some patients are avoidably harmed by allergic reaction and injury.

If you have suffered because tests were not performed beforehand you may be entitled to claim compensation.

Can I Claim? >

Failure to spot and treat infection

Infections are a risk in all types of surgery. Cosmetic surgeons and clinicians know the dangers that infections can pose to patients. It is crucial that they pay attention to keep instruments, procedures, clinics, and theatres as clean as possible. Despite a regimented approach to cleanliness infections still occur. In these incidents spotting the signs and providing treatment as soon as possible is the aim. Sadly this is not always the case and some people are avoidably harmed.

If you have suffered because of a lack of care of duty you may be entitled to claim compensation.
