    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.

    Should I settle my medical negligence compensation claim directly with NHS Resolution?

    Often when patients are unhappy with the treatment they have received from an NHS hospital they will make a formal complaint to the Trust. Formal complaints are a useful way of getting essential information about the treatment a patient has received and may sometimes result in that Trust apologising to the aggrieved patient.

Any time I needed to ask a question or needed any explanation about the case, James Cahan was there at the end of the phone. He answers his own phone so I felt as though I was getting a very personal service. I was never made to feel uncomfortable or a nuisance as I had felt with an earlier solicitor. Communication was excellent throughout, using emails, telephone and letters.  


My case was earlier rejected by another firm of solicitors yet Mr Cahan could see that there was a case to answer. With the expert medical witnesses which he sourced, good communication and sound advice, I felt very confident in his hands that we would get a successful outcome.


Very nice people. Really made the case a lot easier to understand; they were always there to help.


James Cahan's approach was exemplary, he was both approachable and understanding at all times.  


As mentioned, I was very impressed at the start! As the case grew and went on, I felt completely safe, and trusted Jonathan to act in my best interests, though everything was always run by me before going ahead with anything, without the experience and knowledge.


They worked as hard as possible to get me a result that I did not think I would end up with. The communication with my lawyer and his staff was excellent, and I felt at ease discussing such private matters with my lawyer, which is a rarity for me as I am a very private person.


My lawyer was very friendly and easy to talk to, and I always felt he was working his hardest on my case.


Oliver was very helpful and friendly, and settled the case within a short space of time.


Kept me up to date with all stages of the claim. Fees were good, and Oliver was a very helpful and friendly.


I would like to thank Jenny and her team for all their hard work and efforts during what has been a very traumatic 3 years.  Throughout this period, Jenny has been on hand with reassurance and advice.  At the same time, she assembled an excellent team of experts, which enabled me to reach a successful conclusion.


I cannot thank Jenny and her team enough and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend TS&P, Debbie, Jenny and Patricia highly enough. Many thanks again for your professional conduct throughout.


I am so grateful to TS&P for all their work and help with my mother's case; it was a very complicated and time-consuming case.
