When does having eyelid surgery become a medical negligence claim?

The eyelid surgery is about removing excess skin, fat and muscles around the eyes. It’s often a cosmetic surgery to hide signs of ageing. However, it can also be for health reasons, such as to avoid headaches from overused muscles in the eyelid area or to improve your vision if you have drooping eyelids.

Whether the NHS or a private practice has performed your eyelid surgery, if mistakes have been made which have caused an injury or illness, you may be entitled to claim compensation for medical negligence.

The vast majority of our eyelid surgery compensation claims are funded by a No Win No Fee agreement, meaning there’s no financial risk to you.
