Cosmetic Surgery Claims & Compensation Solicitors

An estimated 75,000 cosmetic and plastic surgery operations are performed in Britain privately and on the NHS each year. The number of negligence claims is on the increase despite the introduction of regulations by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). Many claims are brought due to the failure on the part of the medical expert to adequately explain the risks of the procedure, the actual procedure itself or due to the postoperative care. We are able to deal with all aspects of cosmetic surgery claims including: breast and facial surgery, chemical peels, liposuction and laser eye surgery. We can help with claiming for cosmetic surgery gone wrong.

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.
