Do I have a claim for medical negligence during cosmetic surgery?
Our experienced solicitors can support you through the legal process and will handle your cosmetic surgery claim with sensitivity and professionalism through what can be a distressing and stressful time.
What are some examples of cosmetic surgery claims?
We are frequently instructed to consider whether negligence was responsible for unwanted outcomes of plastic surgery. Commonly, we are asked to consider whether breast surgery has been incompetently performed.
Cosmetic Surgery claims that we have handled to date include women who have undergone breast reductions followed by very poor aftercare. In one case, this resulted in failure to detect a developing haematoma which in turn resulted in death of the tissue within the breast. This caused the loss of a nipple and part of the breast tissue.
Another cosmetic surgery case involved a young woman who underwent a complex augmentation procedure, but had only been informed of the risks of the procedure on the morning it was due to be carried out and did not have sufficient time to consider her options. The outcome was very poor and she required further revisionary surgery. Had she known of the risks specific to her, she would not have gone ahead.
A further case involved a woman who underwent augmentation, but the surgeon did not use the standard incision approach and instead caused extensive scarring throughout the inframammary fold.
