Cosmetic surgery compensation claims

Can I make a personal injury compensation claim?

It is possible to make a personal injury compensation claim if you have undergone cosmetic surgery, which has gone wrong due to the surgeon's negligence.

As cosmetic surgery is now very popular and there are more procedures being carried out than ever before, the number of errors made is also increasing.

Obviously, surgery of any kind carries a risk; however, if you are left with an unexpected scar or the need for corrective surgery due to the surgeon's negligence then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.

Government launches review into the cosmetic surgery industry

During the recent scandal surrounding breast implants, the government promised to carry out a review into the cosmetic surgery industry.

The review’s remit will be to make sure that the cosmetic surgery industry is focused on patient safety and care, as well as the safety of products used in cosmetic procedures.

Patients undergoing cosmetic surgery should be provided with sufficient and accurate information before making the decision to proceed, including whether the person carrying out the procedure has the appropriate qualifications. They also need to know what aftercare is provided by the clinic, particularly when problems arise as a result of the procedure.
