When does rhinoplasty surgery become a medical negligence claim?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, is often a cosmetic procedure to the nose. Some people undergo rhinoplasty voluntarily for cosmetic reasons, and some people undergo rhinoplasty for medical reasons, such as:

  • After an accident or personal injury which has damaged the nose
  • To open blocked nasal passages when suffering from disturbed sleep, snoring or sleep apnea
  • To enhance breathing

Regardless of the reason you undergo rhinoplasty, if mistakes are made during surgery, or during your recovery, which cause an injury or illness, you may be entitled to No Win No Fee compensation for medical negligence.

What type of mistakes cause medical negligence in rhinoplasty?

All procedures such as rhinoplasty have an element of risk. However, where mistakes have led to an injury or illness, you may be able to claim rhinoplasty compensation.

There are a number of mistakes that can lead to negligent rhinoplasty, such as:

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

What type of injuries can result from medical negligence in rhinoplasty procedures?

There are a number of injuries which can result from negligent care both during and after rhinoplasty. Such injuries include:

  • Infections
  • Scarring
  • Abnormal bleeding, clots (haematoma)
  • Eye injury
  • Decreased sense of smell
  • A retracted or hanging columella
