What Is Cosmetic Surgery Negligence?
Cosmetic surgery can improve a person’s appearance, boosting their confidence. Though occasionally, things do go wrong. If a cosmetic surgeon makes a mistake, the patient may be left injured, with a physical appearance that they find unpleasant. They may be left with scars or disfiguration, or the work done may lack symmetry. This can lead to negative psychological effects, ranging from a drop in self-esteem and confidence to, in the worst cases, self-loathing or isolation, leading to further treatment.
If you have suffered following a procedure, you may be able to make a cosmetic surgery claim for compensation.

Can I Make A Cosmetic Surgery Claim For Compensation?
A claim would usually be bought against a cosmetic surgeon, when they have failed to perform their duties adequately. This could lead to damaging mistakes, both physically and psychologically. However, mistakes could have also been made, not only by the cosmetic surgeon, but also an anaesthetist, or a nurse or doctor.
You must be quick if you wish to make a cosmetic injury claim, as there is usually a three-year time limit after your operation where you are able to come forward. Our medical negligence solicitors can provide you with a free consultation to discuss your potential case.

How Much is My Cosmetic Surgery Claim Worth?
Every cosmetic surgery claim is different, so there is no set in stone amount of how much you may receive once your claim has settled. There are many factors to be considered such as the extent of physical and psychological damage, the amount of time taken to recover, any ongoing treatment needed and any other costs you may have incurred because of the errors made. Our Medical Negligence Compensation Calculator, may help to give you a rough guide.
