Rhinoplasty Claims

Have you had rhinoplasty surgery which has gone wrong? Let us help you to put it right.

Rhinoplasty surgery, or more colloquially a ‘nose job’ is a fairly painful cosmetic procedure involving the reshaping of the bone and cartilage of the nose, often requiring a splint to stabilise the nose during the healing procedure. It is one of the most common forms of cosmetic procedure and may occur due to a client’s aesthetic desires or due to a client’s functional issues. For example, they may need an improvement of air flow through the nasal passages.

Rhinoplasty Claims

Often negligent surgery leaves the patient with one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Bleeding
  • Disfigurement
  • Loss of sense of smell
  • Unwanted aesthetic outcome
  • Unacceptable scarring
  • Haemotoma

These issues may lead to the patient having to have further surgery to correct the error, or even cause them to have to live their life with a permanently disabling issue with their breathing. The psychological repercussions of such an error in this cosmetic procedure are huge. The nose is a prominent facial feature which is not possible to conceal.

Can I Claim For Rhinoplasty Medical Negligence?

If it is ruled that a negligent action on the part of your surgeon or negligent care following the operation, you will be able to enter a surgical or medical negligence claim depending on your situation. If it is ruled that a reasonable body of medical professionals would have performed the operation differently, given better aftercare or provided more in depth information to the client prior to the operation being carried out – your claim may be successful.

However, many claims are entered into due to a ‘less than satisfactory aesthetic outcome’ but many of these claims fail due to the claimant having unrealistic expectations of the result of their surgery.
