Cosmetic surgeries have increased in numbers over the past decade, with increasing numbers of men and women opting to go under the knife to enhance their physical appearance. This increase in cosmetic surgery numbers has also resulted in more people being injured during cosmetic surgeries. Injured patients are often left wondering what kind of action they can take on the plastic surgeon or the cosmetic surgeon who had performed the surgery on them. This is where the role of our experienced Medical Negligence Lawyers plays a vital role in getting clients maximum compensation. Our Medical Negligence Lawyers have helped a great number of people in the UK who had been affected by injuries caused from botched cosmetic surgery.

In the UK, more than 70,000 people go under the knife every year to get cosmetic surgery, spending nearly 200 million pounds every year. There are different types of cosmetic surgery that are performed by cosmetic surgeons, with the most common being breast enhancements, liposuction, facelifts, nose surgery, tummy tucks, and buttock implants.

Physical and Mental Suffering from Botched Cosmetic Surgery

When performing these surgeries, cosmetic surgeons had to follow stringent quality procedures including the use of the latest technology and procedures. When the plastic surgery is not performed correctly, patients undergoing the surgery can be subjected to a variety of injuries, including scarring injuries, punctured organs and damages to nerves that can cause the injured party to be suffering for months. In addition to the physical pain and suffering, the affected person may also suffer from mental health problems too. The psychological effects following botched cosmetic surgery may include depression, stress and anxiety.

Example of a Cosmetic Surgery Claim

In one such recent claim, lawyers helped a woman get £80,000 in compensation for the damages caused to her facial nerves during the cosmetic surgery process. In addition to her nerves being damaged, her breast augmentation procedures were not performed properly resulting in uneven and painful breasts. Lawyers helped the victim to prove that the cosmetic surgeon was at fault for the damages caused and she received compensation which enabled her to get corrective surgery.

Our Medical Negligence Lawyers

Our experienced Medical Negligence Lawyers collect the required data and evidence to establish that the cosmetic surgeon was at fault and their insurance company has to bear the financial damages. Our Medical Negligence Lawyers will also prove that if the same surgery had been performed in a safe and controlled manner, the patient wouldn’t have been subjected to serious injuries. They do this by using the help of cosmetic surgery experts and who produce a report containing the details regarding areas where the cosmetic surgeon had gone wrong.
