The latest figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPs) show that more than eight out of ten (84%) of permanent dermal filler procedures required corrective surgery or were deemed untreatable due to bad dermal fillers.

Having dermal fillers treatment

Dermal fillers are popular treatments for wrinkles, scarring, facial lines and other depressions of the skin, particularly around the eyes, mouth and on the forehead. The procedure has become as popular as breast enhancements and can be divided into two main groups: temporary ones made from hyaluronic acid which is eventually absorbed into the body, and more permanent ones made from other materials that can remain in the body for many years.

Why do people have dermal fillers?

A dermal fillers procedure ‘rejuvenates’ the skin and gives a fuller and more youthful effect. It involves injecting a gel substance under the skin which plumps out grooves and helps to ‘fill out’ and smooth away troublesome complexions including:

Dermal Filler Claims

  • Nose to mouth grooves
  • Forehead lines
  • Frown furrows
  • Lipstick lines
  • Acne pits
  • Crows feet
There are more than 100 types of dermal filler injection procedures administered in the UK.
Successful dermal fillers treatment offers patients a wide range of benefits, including a more youthful appearance. This treatment can be used to fill minor to moderate lines and wrinkles and is especially effective around the eyes, nose and mouth. When used as a lip enhancement product, it can lend volume and definition to lips, producing a sensual, more pronounced pout.
What happens during the dermal fillers procedure
The procedure is quick, often taking 30 minutes or less to complete.  The treatment is non-invasive with virtually no recovery time necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment.
What happens in instances of dermal fillers gone wrong
Bad dermal fillers may be due to a clinician failing to inject the filler deep enough and can cause a devastating chain of adverse physical and psychological reactions which are potentially long lasting, harmful effects.
Injections that go wrong through negligent dermal filler treatment can result in a variety of symptoms leading to dermal filler claims. These include an allergic reaction, toxic shock, nerve damage, blurred vision, blindness, facial collapse, herpes, rheumatic disease, insomnia and blue-tinged flesh.
Most commonly patients suffer from localised swellings and bad scarring when dermal fillers have gone wrong through negligence by the person conducting the treatment.

Negligent dermal filler treatment which could result in cosmetic surgery claims can also lead to depression and require cosmetic corrective surgery to conceal the scars. One of the main reasons bad dermal filler procedures are becoming more frequent is due to the lack of regulation which has allowed unproven substances to be used by unqualified practitioners who are administering fillers incorrectly.
Cosmetic surgeons are increasingly called upon to deal with problems arising from injectable fillers, even though many do not administer them in the first place. Recent figures from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPs) reveal that there has been an increase in problems stemming from the administration of dermal filler injections. BAAPs found that around seven in ten surgeons (69%) have seen patients with complications from temporary dermal fillers over the past 12 months.
Almost half (49 per cent) have also seen problems with semi or permanent fillers, which are used to reduce wrinkles and ‘rejuvenate’ the skin. The vast majority (84 per cent) of patients with problems relating to permanent fillers needed corrective surgery or were unable to be treated.
