Our expert medical negligence solicitors understand that most people have cosmetic surgery to improve their appearance and increase their self-confidence, so it is all the more devastating to spend savings on surgery only to find that you look and feel worse. They will deal sensitively and professionally with your cosmetic surgery claim.
Until 2002 cosmetic surgeons may not have had specialist training. Many cosmetic surgeons operate on different parts of the body, which would normally be the specialist areas of other types of doctor. This means that some cosmetic surgeons may be doing breast enlargements one day and surgery to treat drooping eye bags the next.
While the quality of treatment given by many cosmetic surgeons is very good, some make unsatisfactory errors.
Common cosmetic surgery claims
We have successfully obtained compensation for many clients who have come to us with their cosmetic surgery claim. Claims arise from:
• Failure to obtain informed consent
• Breast enlargement
• Breast reduction
• Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)
• Brow lifts
• Laser skin resurfacing
• Cosmetic dentistry
• Tummy tucks or gastric band surgery
• Other complications of surgery, such as damage to nerves, arteries and organs.
Mistakes after cosmetic surgery
Sometimes doctors and nurses make mistakes while patients are recovering from surgery. Common errors include failing to notice that a patient is developing an infection.
Contracting an infection is not always a sign of negligence, but medical staff failing to note the signs of infection may be. Neglected infection can be much worse than infection treated early.
