Cosmetic Surgery

The cosmetic surgery industry has been steadily growing over the past decade.  The BBC recently reported that figures produced by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) show a 13% increase in the number of cosmetic procedures carried out in 2015. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-35501487)

The results overturn a decline in the early 2000s, perhaps caused by both the recession and concerns about the safety of materials used following the faulty breast implant scandal https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pip-implants/.  It appears that both genders are increasingly resorting to nips, tucks and jabs to restore youth and achieve the body beautiful.

Unfortunately, the results are not always what is hoped for or promised.  We have successfully obtained considerable compensation on behalf of clients who have been injured following cosmetic surgery procedures.

Common Cosmetic Surgery Claims

Common procedures where mistakes are made and compensation claims arise include:

  • Nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)
  • Botox
  • laser skin resurfacing
  • Breast surgery
  • Cosmetic Dentistry – including implants and teeth whitening procedures
  • Facelifts
  • Liposuction
  • Tummy tucks (gastric band surgery)
  • Aftercare – including failure to diagnose infection
