In cosmetic surgery, it is very important that the full implications (pros and cons) of each option for treatment is discussed with you before it is undertaken, so you can give informed consent to the treatment.
You may have a claim if you have suffered as a result of cosmetic or plastic surgery that was undertaken negligently. Whether this surgery was undertaken via NHS or private treatment, you are still entitled to a high standard of care. When that standard of care falls below the required standards it can result in pain, discomfort and disfigurement. In some cases you may require remedial surgery as a result.
In cases such as these, our Medical Negligence Solicitors that specialise in cosmetic surgery claims will be able to help you make a claim for compensation.

We pride ourselves on our customer service. As part of our customer promise, we will seek to obtain an early settlement for you. We also aim to ensure that you get all the rehabilitation support that you need.
Common Cosmetic Surgery Claims
We have a wide range of experience having recovered compensation for cosmetic claims for many individuals all with unique circumstances.
Claims often occur as a result of the following procedures: –
- Breast enlargement
- Breast reduction
- Blepheroplasty (eyelift surgery)
- Rhinoplasty (nose surgery)
- Liposuction/tummy tuck
- Cosmetic dentistry
Assessment of Cosmetic Surgery Claims
It is important that before embarking upon any such surgery, the doctor undertaking the surgery discusses what is to be undertaken fully with you, so you understand the implications and can make an informed decision. If this information was not provided to you in an appropriate manner you are likely to be entitled to compensation.
Alternatively you may have suffered a poor outcome from treatment or surgery such as an infection or bleeding or unexpected or excessive scarring which could have been avoided.
Starting your Medical Negligence claim
When you contact us we will seek to understand the nature of the injury you have experienced and establish whether you received negligent care before, during or after surgery.
Once we have established the facts, we will be able to provide you with some initial advice. Our dedicated team of solicitors will also talk you through the claim process so you can make an informed decision about whether to progress your claim.
