This process is usually performed under general anaesthetic because of the inherent trauma that is caused to the face. The surgical technique that the surgeon will use depends entirely on the area of the face that is to be lifted.
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:
- Unnecessary scarring
- Blood clots
- Loss of skin or hair
- Damage to facial nerves
- Developing pockets of blood under the skin
How Do I Know If I Have A Claim for Facelift Compensation?
If you’ve had a facelift and you’ve experienced sub-standard treatment, you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
Most treatments are carried out by competent and professional surgeons – there are no complications and the procedure is a success. But, the explosion in demand for cosmetic procedures has led to a number of unscrupulous surgeons carrying out procedures without the proper training or experience. As a result, patients are being left with lasting damage, including scarring, illness and infections, which are definitely not the desired effect!
Sadly, the effects can be both physical, such as pain or disfigurement, and psychological, which can be the negative effects that feeling disfigured can have on an individual. Those affected may end up feeling like they can’t leave the house or see people, which can create further problems with isolation and, potentially, depression.
