Nose Reshaping (Rhinoplasty) Compensation Claims
Have you had a nose job, only to have it go wrong? If you’ve have had rhinoplasty – the medical name for a nose job – and it’s not turned out the way you expected, you should contact us to find out if you can make a claim for compensation.
Our team of specialist solicitors are here to help. Tell us a bit about what happened, and when it happened, then we’ll be able to tell you whether we can make a claim for compensation or not.
Perfection Can Come With a Price!
In today’s society of perfection, wanting to fit in is normal. No one wants to feel unattractive or uncomfortable because they think people are staring at their nose, especially if it’s been damaged because of an accident.
Thankfully, cosmetic surgery has put an end to that.
Rhinoplasty Gone Wrong
Having a nose job is a big operation. The surgeon probably had to hammer the bone to create the shape required, which leaves you feeling really sore. If it goes well – great! But what if it goes wrong?
Feeling like you are disfigured is bad enough. So, we can only imagine how terrible it must be, when the operation you believed would make you feel better, goes wrong!
But, surgeons are people, just like you and me. And, that means they are just as likely to make a mistake as you or I. However, if this happened to you, you may be able to claim for compensation.
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:
- Blood clots
- Excessive bruising
- Nerve injury
- Breathing problems
- Further damage to the nose, more commonly the septum

Why you Should Claim for Compensation
The psychological effects of feeling like people are staring can be terrible. They can lead to a loss of self-confidence and even depression. And these are just the psychological effects of a nose job going wrong. There may also be physical effects too.
Maybe you are in pain, or the problem stops you leading the life you used to. You may even be unable to work. What would you do in these circumstances?
This is why it’s so important that you do something about it now, as compensation was designed for just this kind of situation.
If you are eligible to make a claim for compensation, you can include amounts to cover your everyday living costs, plus any other treatments, specialist equipment or nursing care you may need.
If you are unable to look after yourself, and you’ being cared for by your family, you can use the compensation to pay for respite care, to give you both a break.
Once you are secure in the knowledge that your bills are being taken care of, you can concentrate on getting better.
