Cosmetic Negligence Claims

The demand for Cosmetic (plastic) surgery has risen sharply in recent years and is now very common, despite the serious concerns about the cosmetic surgery industry.

No surgery is risk free, and it is important that you are aware, not only of the general risks of surgery, but also the additional risks for the specific type of surgery undertaken, as you may develop complications simply as a result of the surgery itself and not as a result of any medical negligence. 

Although the General Medical Council (GMC) and the Royal College of Surgeons have provided some guidance, the cosmetic surgery industry in the UK is still poorly regulated compared to other areas of healthcare. Unfortunately, this does mean that mistakes are all too common.

Cosmetic surgery mistakes are very sensitive and personal, and we understand that they can have a devastating and lifelong impact upon you and your family. 

When medical treatment goes wrong, only lawyers with expert legal knowledge will do. Here at Joseph James Law we recognise the devastating effect that a catastrophic injury can have. We understand that a serious injury can be a severe financial, physical and psychological burden on the whole family. We understand the importance of compensation and can help you obtain a settlement that will help with any financial and future care needs that you may have.

Common Types of Cosmetic Surgery Claims Include:

  • Breast Enlargement
  • Breast Reduction
  • Breast Uplift
  • Facelift & Brow Lift
  • Reconstructions
  • Defective Product
  • Rhinoplasty (nose job) & Nasal Reconstruction
  • Gastric Band (weight loss)
  • Liposuction
  • Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck)
  • Laser surgery

Common Types of Mistakes:

  • Nerve damage
  • Scarring
  • Burns
  • Embolism & DVT
  • Organ Damage
  • Bloods Loss
  • Anaesthetic Complications

Mistakes After Cosmetic Surgery

Sometimes mistakes are made after surgery during the recovery period. One of the most common mistakes is the failure to recognise and treat an infection. Infection can often be easily treated with antibiotics, but when infection is left unchecked, it can worsen and spread. One of the worst complications of an untreated infection is sepsis. Without prompt treatment, sepsis can lead to multiorgan failure and death.

How Can We Help You?

Surgery to change our appearance is becoming increasingly common and whilst most people are happy with the outcome there is no guarantee that you will be happy with the results. Sometimes it can simply be the case that the surgery did not meet your expectations, but you can be left with significant injuries from cosmetic surgery as a result of negligence. For example breast augmentation that results in asymmetry of the breasts or nipples, or abdominoplasty where the scar is in the wrong place, or where pubis has been stretched.

If you have suffered a cosmetic surgery procedure that went wrong, then you may be entitled to compensation. Our clinical negligence team are experts in cosmetic surgery claims and will be able to help you understand whether you have a claim.
