Cosmetic Surgery Compensation
Has your cosmetic surgery gone wrong? Let us help you to put it right.
Cosmetic surgery is on the rise. A recent study by a UK cosmetic surgeon found a 155 per cent increase in the number of people having procedures done between 1997 and 2010. The USA is still the country where most cosmetic procedures take place, however, the UK is not the second most popular destination for surgical procedures - countries such as Mexico, Spain and Turkey are high on the list due to people travelling across the world for cheap proceedures.
What Is Cosmetic Surgery Negligence?
Negligent cosmetic surgery is when a procedure has not been performed correctly. This may result in pain, further complications and surgery or disfigurement. Often plastic surgery negligence occurs because the surgeon is under qualified to perform the procedure they have conducted. In the UK concerns surround the issue of surgeons performing multiple different procedures when they have in fact only been trained in one.
Plastic surgery gone wrong statistics from abroad are much higher than the UK's, with horrifying errors occurring - such as the wrong chemicals being used for cosmetic peels and bowels being punctured during a liposuction operations.
Any surgery has its risks and negligent actions in cosmetic surgery can mimic those which occur in medical surgical negligence. Anaesthetic negligence and failure to provide adequate blood supply are common occurrences.
When choosing a plastic surgeon it is absolutely imperative that you do your research. They must be qualified and they must give you a detailed analysis of all the risks associated with your procedure so you ensure you make a considered decision as to whether you wish to continue with the procedure.
Cosmetic Surgery Compensation?
If you have had any kind of botched cosmetic procedure you have a right to claim. Some common types of claim include:
- Breast enlargements, including PIP implants
- Anaesthetist claims
Any procedure which has gone wrong due to the negligence of your surgeon, not due to unavoidable complication, will be deemed down to a negligent action. All surgeons have a responsibility to their patients and you should not leave their surgery in a condition that you did not anticipate leaving in.
