This fairly straightforward procedure can be done under local or general anaesthetic. To minimise scarring, the incisions to the eyelids are made in the natural creases of the either the upper or lower lid and closed with very fine stitches.
Much like other forms of cosmetic surgery there are inherent risks that can arise if the procedure isn’t performed with due care and attention.
Some of the most severe complications related to medical negligence include:
- Removing too much skin which leaves the eyelids unable to close
- Damage to the cornea
- Double vision
- Haemorrhage causing bleeding into the eye socket, damaging the optic nerve
- Poor technique leading to an uneven appearance
How Do I Know If I Have A Claim for Eyelid Surgery Compensation?
If you’re blepharoplasty, also known as eyelid surgery, has gone wrong, and you believe that you’ve been exposed to sub-standard treatment, you should contact us. This is particularly important if the treatment you received resulted in you suffering more than you should have. When this is the case, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
Happily, the vast majority of treatments are completely successful, with no issues arising after treatment. However, sometimes mistakes happen, and when they do, the effects can be devastating.
Negligent treatments have resulted in patients suffering from pain or disfigurement. This in itself can be potentially life-changing, as it can lead to the patient becoming unwilling to leave their house. This is especially true if the reason for the cosmetic surgery was to improve appearance.
If you think your blepharoplasty surgeon was negligent and you’ve suffered as a result, please don’t suffer in silence. Contact us and we can talk through your circumstances to see if you might be eligible to claim for compensation.
