Cosmetic Surgery Negligence
More and more people are going under the knife and having cosmetic surgery, but it’s not always a safe and simple procedure.
Unfortunately there is an increasing amount of people who experience some sort of negligence or malpractice when undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Cosmetic surgery is not as closely regulated as other areas of healthcare and medicine, and although the majority of professionals take great care, mistakes can happen which often leave patients traumatised.
We understand that whatever your reason for undergoing cosmetic surgery, if it goes wrong you will feel deflated and upset.
Here at AWH we are committed to righting the wrongs of negligent plastic surgeons and getting you the justice and compensation you deserve.
Claim for Cosmetic Surgery Negligence
If you choose to undergo cosmetic surgery, you expect the procedure to be performed to an extremely high standard and to run smoothly, but that isn’t always the reality.
At AWH we’ll be able to guide you through the process of making a claim for cosmetic surgery negligence, and promise to handle your case with great sensitivity.
You may be entitled to claim if you identify with one or more of the following examples;
- Your surgeon did not fully explain the procedure to you, outline possible outcomes and dangers, or give you a chance to reconsider the procedure following the initial consultation
- The cosmetic procedure fell below the expected standard of a competent cosmetic surgeon
- A defective product was used, for example a faulty or damaged implant
- Inadequate aftercare was provided or there was a failure to notice you were developing an infection
Compensation for Failed Procedures
Below are examples of the most common cosmetic procedures that our clients claim compensation for following negligence on the part of a medical professional;
- Breast enlargement and reduction
- Chemical peel
- Ear reshaping (Otoplasty)
- Eyelid surgery (Blepharoplasty)
- Facelifts (Rhytidectomy)
- Gastric band & weight loss surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
- Nose reshaping (Rhinoplasty)
- Tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty)
However, if you have undergone a failed cosmetic procedure that doesn’t appear in the list above, we will still be able to assist you with your claim.
You shouldn’t have to suffer following surgery due to the mistakes of a professional: you deserve justice.
