Liposuction Claims

Liposuction Negligence Solicitors

If you believe your liposuction was carried out to a substandard level, you must speak to a solicitor with liposuction negligence expertise about the treatment you received. This is because you could be the innocent victim of medical negligence; if so, you will be entitled to claim compensation for the injuries you have sustained.

Risks of liposuction

Liposuction, or 'lipo', is becoming increasingly popular throughout the UK. It is commonly used by people who have fatty deposits across their body that cannot be removed via diet or exercise. Liposuction provides a way to permanently remove fat cells from these problem areas, thereby altering their body shape to achieve a more sculptured look.

The operation itself sees a surgeon inject the targeted areas with a liquid solution. Small cuts will then be made, through which a tiny tube (known as a microcannula) will be inserted. This tube is connected to a vacuum machine which is used to suck the fat from the tissue.

As with all surgical procedures, liposuction does have risks. A patient should be informed of these before signing a consent form. These might include swelling, bruising, bleeding, temporary numbness and a bad reaction to the anaesthetic. For the most part, risks such as these cannot be avoided; all a surgeon can do is to warn a patient in advance of the operation to ensure he/she is able to make an informed decision about the procedure.

Claiming for negligent liposuction

However, there are more serious complications that may arise because of the actions (or even inactions) of the surgeon. This might include:-

  • Damage to the internal organs;
  • Lumpy or uneven results;
  • Loss of sensation;
  • Nerve damage;
  • Excessive scarring;
  • Damage to underlying tissue.

Such complications will undoubtedly cause considerable distress to the patient who will be left to suffer physically, emotionally and financially.

Nevertheless, if this has happened to you or a loved one, there might be a way to obtain compensation for the injuries you have wrongfully endured. Indeed, if your surgeon is found to have displayed a substandard level of skill and expertise during the course of your lipo procedure, and you suffer complications as a direct result, you will be considered the victim of medical negligence.

You will therefore be entitled to pursue legal action against the doctor or organisation responsible. If your claim is successful, you will be awarded financial redress for your pain and suffering, and for your acute financial loss. This can be extremely useful, especially if you require further correctional surgery.
