Cosmetic Surgery Claims in Manchester, Blackburn and Lancashire
Increasing numbers of people in the UK are undergoing cosmetic surgery. Whether it is a routine procedure such as teeth whitening or laser skin resurfacing, or a complicated operation such as breast augmentation or rhinoplasty, each patient is owed a duty of care to ensure that the care provided is not substandard. You may be able to claim compensation if something has gone wrong with the treatment that you have received because of negligence.
Cosmetic surgery is a procedure that is performed for the purposes of appearance. A distinction must be drawn between surgical and non-surgical procedures because of the rules around regulation. Surgery must be performed by a qualified doctor, whereas non-surgical procedures may be performed by unqualified and unregulated individuals who present themselves as cosmetic surgery experts. Mistakes occur far more frequently in the unregulated non-surgical sector where almost two thirds of non-surgical complications are irreversible.
When cosmetic surgery goes wrong the consequences for the patient can be physical, emotional, psychological and financial. Claims often arise because of a lack of precision or the adoption of substandard techniques. Our specialist medical negligence solicitors will help you to understand what has gone wrong with the cosmetic surgery, identify the impact that this has had upon you, and what future treatment you may need to correct the issue.
