While the quality of treatment given by many cosmetic surgeons in the UK is very good, some cosmetic surgeons in the UK and abroad make unsatisfactory errors or mistakes leading to horrific scars and injuries, in some cases.
Common Cosmetic Surgery Claims
We have successfully claimed compensation for many people who contacted us after suffering or being injured by cosmetic surgery. Common types of compensation claims include:
• 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 cosmetic/plastic 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.
Cosmetic Surgery in the UK & Abroad
Until 2002 cosmetic surgeons in the UK may not have had specialist cosmetic surgery 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 perform a breast enlargement procedure first thing in the morning and then do surgery to treat drooping eye bags before lunch.
The increased number of Brits travelling outside the UK, to EU and Eastern Europe for cosmetic surgery treatments has increased the number of claims for cosmetic surgery compensation in the UK.
If you or a member of your family has suffered from a plastic surgery procedure or cosmetic surgery treatment that was performed in the UK or overseas, call us for a free consultation and we'll be happy to help you.
