Whilst the majority of people who opt to undergo cosmetic surgery achieve satisfactory results, not everyone achieves their desired outcome. When that is due to poor treatment or advice, you may have a claim for medical negligence.

When deciding on your options, your cosmetic surgeon should have discussed the procedure with you, including the possible outcomes, results and risks involved. After this discussion, there should be what’s known as a ‘cooling off period’, where you have the chance to process the information given to you by the cosmetic surgeon and you can way up the ‘pros and cons’ involved.

If you have undergone cosmetic surgery and suffered a poor outcome, or you feel you were misled by your cosmetic surgeon, you may be entitled to make a medical negligence claim.

Our specialist team have experience in handling a wide range of cosmetic surgery claims, including:

  • Botox injections;
  • Breast augmentation/reduction;
  • Hair transplants;
  • Laser eye surgery;
  • Lip augmentation;
  • Liposuction;
  • Nose surgery;
  • Reconstructive surgery.
