We know that the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is not one that’s taken lightly.
Figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons show that the number of men and women undergoing cosmetic procedures in the UK is increasing. Unfortunately, as the number of cosmetic procedures increases, so does the number of cosmetic surgery negligence cases.
If the outcome of the cosmetic operation you underwent was different to the intended outcome, you suffered excessive and avoidable scarring, or your recovery time has lengthened as a result of a surgical error, you could be entitled to compensation.
Types of cosmetic surgery claim
The most common type of cosmetic surgery procedure is breast augmentation, however, cosmetic surgery claims can be made following any kind of procedure, including:
- Breast enlargement or reduction
- Eyelid surgery
- Face or neck lift
- Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping)
- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
There has also been an increase in the number of negligence claims made relating to defective breast implants, often for the anxiety and stress caused to the victim. Read our page on breast implants claims for more information.
