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 No Win No Fee compensation for medical negligence.
