Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claims
Got a Question?
Some people are unhappy with their bodies and may sometimes take the drastic step of seeking the services of cosmetic surgeons who they trust to transform for the better whatever part of their body they wish to be improved. However, in some cases, there has been horrific incidences of cosmetic surgery gone wrong. For the most part, these people will receive a professional service from the surgeon performing the procedure and they will walk away satisfied with the results for which they have paid. Sometimes, however, patients may receive unsuccessful operations, leaving them with a part of their body that looks worse than it did before the operation and the added psychological trauma of being left with a part of their body with which they were already insecure looking and feeling worse than it was before the operation.
Over recent years, the number of people in the UK undergoing cosmetic surgery has increased dramatically, with an average of over £300 million being spent every year in what was once a sector frequented by only the most privileged of individuals but which has now opened up to a much wider cross-section of society. One unfortunate consequence of this, however, has been a steady increase in the number of unsuccessful procedures being carried out in an industry that remains under-regulated compared to other areas of the private health sector despite also being an industry where such high risks are a fundamental part of conventional everyday practice.
Amongst the many different procedures carried out every year, by far the most common ending unsuccessfully, leaving patients requesting the services of solicitors are face lifts (rhytidectomy), nose reshaping (rhinoplasty), ear reshaping (otoplasty), eyelid surgery (blepharoplasty), breast augmentation and reduction, tummy tucks (abdominoplasty) and liposuction. Problems that can potentially result from procedures such as these include abnormal scarring, infection of wounds, damage to nerves and surrounding tissue, damage to other body parts and ruptured implants. Incorrect installation of implants can also occur which can result in pain and discomfort for the affected patient with the added inevitable aesthetic deficiencies.
How Long Do I Have to File a Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim?
During your worries and journey through to better health, a solicitor is as crucial as your cosmetic surgeon. When filing for cosmetic compensation, the claim is only valid if you begin to claim within 3 years of the event happening. However, if you are a victim of PIP breast implants, then the regulatory rules are different.
Can Tylers Advise Me on Cosmetic Surgery Compensation?
If you have suffered at the hands of a clinically negligent cosmetic surgeon, we can help. Many people often find it difficult to take the first courageous step to make compensation claims concerning clinical negligence resulting from improperly conducted cosmetic surgery procedures. People may feel that because they have opted for non-essential surgery to enhance their appearance, that they are somehow partly to blame and that therefore, as a result, the surgeon responsible is absolved of some, if not all, responsibility. This is never the case. Cosmetic surgeons, like any other, provide a service with added financial costs and are therefore just as obligated to ensure the well-being of their clients.
