Cosmetic Surgery Claims

Solicitors in Essex & London

Cosmetic surgery procedures are normally elective and some procedures are not even regulated by a medical body or authority. All surgeons undertaking this kind of procedure have a duty of care to ensure that you are safe before, during and after an operation and to avoid unnecessary harm. Our medical negligence solicitors in Essex and London have dealt with many cases of negligence arising as a result of botched cosmetic surgery procedures for clients across the UK.

Reputable cosmetic surgeons will:

  • Be suitably qualified as a cosmetic surgeon
  • Inform you of the risks and the benefits of cosmetic surgery
  • Provide you with alternative options where possible
  • Give you a ‘cooling off’ period before conducting the procedure

Cosmetic surgery can alter appearances, but cannot result in perfection.  Reputable surgeons should be honest about outcomes to manage your expectations and fulfil their obligations to you.

Claims for cosmetic surgery include:

  • Breast surgery issues following augmentation, reduction, uplift, mastectomy and reconstruction.
  • Laser surgery issues following both medical and cosmetic procedures, such as removal or reduction of moles, veins, birthmarks, tattoos etc.
  • Laser eye surgery issues following LASIK/LASEK procedures to assist with vision and eliminate the use of glasses.
  • Liposuction, resulting in excessive scarring.
  • Tummy tucks leading to bowel perforations.

If you or a loved one were not given sufficient information about the risks involved with your procedure, your surgery/ treatment was substandard or the products used were defective and you have suffered injuries as a result, the cosmetic surgeon may have breached their duty of care towards you and a claim for negligence may be able to be pursuable.

The consequences of negligence can be devastating and result in both physical and emotional suffering.

If you have had cosmetic surgery which has gone wrong, our team of expert medical negligence solicitors may be able to assist you. By making a cosmetic surgery compensation claim, we can help you obtain necessary funds to pay for any corrective or specialist treatments required and to fund any counselling or other relevant treatment.
