Cosmetic surgery has become an accepted part of life here in the UK, with an increasing number of men and women seeking treatment. Unfortunately, however, while such surgery is often described as ‘routine’, this doesn’t mean it’s without risk.
At Price Slater Gawne, we have extensive experience helping clients injured by cosmetic surgery to secure compensation for the harm done to them. In many cases, unfortunate patients are left with noticeable and unacceptable scarring as a result of their surgery.
In addition, we also deal with psychiatric injury claims, where a history of depression was overlooked by the cosmetic medical practitioners, resulting in additional upset and distress.
Our sympathetic lawyers have experience in a broad range of successful cosmetic surgery compensation claims, including:
- Breast augmentation and reduction claims
- Eye bag lift claims
- Face lift claims
- Dermal fillers and Botox injection claims
- Nose job claims
- Tummy tuck and liposuction claims
- Weight loss claims caused by bariatric surgery, gastric bypass and gastric banding
- Psychiatric injury claims.
Unfortunately, with most cosmetic surgery taking place privately, these procedures are often motivated by profit. As such, many patients are not made fully aware of the risks of the surgery and, all too often, something in the medical history of the patient that should prevent the surgery taking place is overlooked.
Even where cosmetic surgery has been provided through the NHS, cases of negligence do still occur, and our experienced solicitors can help secure compensation for any injuries.
If you have been injured by a cosmetic surgeon or practitioner, contact us today for a no-obligation chat to find out how we can help you obtain the compensation you deserve.
