When does a facelift procedure become a medical negligence claim?

Facelifts (rhytidectomy) is one of the more popular cosmetic surgery procedures. In the majority of cases, facelifts are privately funded, although in few situations they may also be available on the NHS.

Regardless of whether your facelift procedure was carried out by a private practice or the NHS, if the medical professionals carrying out your surgery, or looking after you during the recovery period, make mistakes that cause you injury, you may be entitled to claim facelift compensation on a No Win No Fee basis for medical negligence.

What type of mistakes cause medical negligence in facelift surgery?

All cosmetic surgery procedures have an element of risk. However, where mistakes have led to an injury or illness, you may be able to claim compensation. There are a number of mistakes that can lead to negligent facelift surgery, such as:

  • Risks haven't been explained properly
  • Poor surgical technique
  • Neglecting the patient
  • Lack of precautionary measures
  • Clinical errors
  • Lack of instructions regarding aftercare
