Cosmetic Surgery Claims
Over an estimated 100,000 cosmetic surgery operations and non-surgical cosmetic treatments are performed in Britain each year.
Latest figures suggest an estimated £180 million is spent every year in the UK on private cosmetic surgery (including nose and breast surgery) and beauty treatments Including Botox injections, collagen injections and laser skin resurfacing.
The number of negligence claims is on the increase despite the introduction of higher standards of regulation by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Many claims are brought due to the failure on the part of the medical professional to adequately explain the risks of the procedure, the actual procedure itself or due to the postoperative care.

A Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Case Success Story
Miss A was 18 years old when she required surgery under the NHS. She had a discrepancy in the size of her breasts. The surgery was negligently performed and the cosmetic result was poor. This caused Miss A embarrassment and distress. We worked on a No Win No Fee basis and a supportive report was obtained from a breast surgeon confirming that the surgery had been negligently performed leading to an unsatisfactory cosmetic result. Proceedings were commenced in Court and settlement was achieved which provided for the entire cost of remedial surgery.
