When can you make a compensation claim for cosmetic surgery?
Cosmetic surgery is notoriously difficult to regulate. When it goes wrong the impact can be both physical and psychological and can cause extreme stress in your day-to-day life. Where there is medical negligence, you can be entitled to claim compensation from the responsible party.
Some of the more common clinical negligence issues arising in cosmetic surgery are as a result of:
- Defective breast implants (including PIP implants)
- Breast uplift (mastopexy)
- Bariatric surgery (e.g. gastric band, gastric bypass and gastric sleeve)
- Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)
- Facial surgery (including rhinoplasty and rytidectomy)
- Botox treatment
- Vaginal reconstruction.
