What are medical negligence cosmetic surgery claims?

The quality of treatment given by cosmetic surgeons is generally good and most patients are happy with the results. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the case and there are occasions, both in the UK and abroad, where the standard of treatment is poor, and mistakes are made. This can lead to patients suffering from horrific scarring and other injuries, some of which can be life-changing.

If you’ve been injured by mistakes during cosmetic surgery, you may be entitled to compensation for medical negligence.

What types of cosmetic surgery can result in a medical negligence claim?

It doesn’t matter what type of cosmetic surgery you undergo. If medical mistakes have caused you harm, you may have the right to compensation. The most common types of cosmetic surgery cases we deal with include:

Can you still make a claim if the cosmetic surgery negligence happened abroad?

The number of Brits travelling outside the UK to EU and Eastern Europe for cosmetic surgery treatments has increased, as people are looking for cheaper cosmetic surgery options.

The standards, training, regulation and certification of cosmetic surgery varies across different countries. Even in the UK, many cosmetic surgeons operate on different parts of the body and aren’t always specialists.

If you’ve suffered from cosmetic surgery negligence abroad, you may still be entitled to make a claim. Contact our experts who will advise you whether or not you’re able to make a medical negligence claim.

What proof do I need for a cosmetic surgery negligence claim?

In order to bring a claim for cosmetic surgery negligence, we must be able to prove fault and harm which could have been avoided. If you think that a medical professional failed to fulfil their responsibilities, and that this failure caused you unnecessary harm, contact us now and we'll be able to advise you on how we can gather evidence for your medical negligence claim.

How do I pay for a cosmetic surgery negligence claim?

The vast majority of our cases are funded by way of a Conditional Fee Agreement, otherwise known as a No Win No Fee agreement. What this means is if you lose your case, you won't have to pay anything and therefore, there’s no financial risk to you. Contact our medical negligence specialists for a free consultation.
