Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Negligence
We appreciate that it often takes some time to make the decision to undergo plastic surgery, and then often a longer period of time to save the money to be able to do so. The last thing you think of at that point is anything going wrong with the surgery. Sadly we are seeing an increasing number of women and men coming forward after surgery due to unsatisfactory results. If this has happened to you, you are not alone and we may well be able to help you, so please do read on.
When Does The 'Wrong' Plastic Surgery Amount To Negligence?
There are many examples when plastic surgery can lead to a medical negligence claim, including (but not exclusively):
- Breast surgery leading to disfigurement (scarring) or lopsided breasts
- Nose reshaping/surgery
- Tummy tucks with unecessary scarring
- Lip implants
- Ear surgery
The results of the plastic surgery not being carried out to the necessary standards can include scarring, infections, disfigurement and pain and suffering.
What Can You Do?
If you have suffered disfigurement or pain and suffering following plastic surgery, you may well be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering. We can obtain your medical records for you and assess whether you have a good chance of a successful claim. We can also investigate further private medical treatment that might improve your disfigurement or relieve your pain.
