Cosmetic Surgery Compensation

If you have undergone a cosmetic surgery procedure and you have experienced unreasonable levels of pain or suffering as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.

It may be that you have suffered serious side-effects or the potential side-effects were not fully explained to you prior to the procedure.

In any of these cases it is important you seek legal advice from a specialist clinical negligence solicitor with experience in successfully dealing with cosmetic surgery compensation claims.

Compensation for cosmetic surgery

Holmes & Hills provides compensation claim advice relating to a wide range of cosmetic surgery procedures, including:

When might you be able to claim cosmetic surgery compensation?

Every plastic surgeon has a duty of care towards their patients. If you have suffered unnecessarily during or after your operation, then your cosmetic surgeon may well be deemed negligent.

What your cosmetic surgeon should do:

What your plastic surgeon should not do:

  • Carry out any cosmetic procedure without first meeting you for a consultation.
  • Give you unrealistic expectations of what the surgery may achieve.
  • Try to persuade you to go through with a procedure when you are undecided as to whether you really want it. (Hard sell techniques)

Can you claim compensation for your plastic surgery?

You may be able to make a claim for compensation if:

  • There was a surgical error made during your procedure.
  • You have had to undergo further procedures to repair complications or damage caused by your initial surgery.
  • You suffered unnecessarily during or after your cosmetic procedure e.g. an unusually prolonged and painful recovery.
  • You were not properly warned of the risks involved in your procedure or received conflicting advice.

The risks associated with each plastic surgery procedure differ greatly and the way in which you would have been dealt with by your surgeon is also likely to differ from other people’s experience.
