The Cosmetic Surgery Claims Process Explained
How Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors Can Help You
If you’ve recently had breast surgery, a dermal filler procedure or a nose job, you’re one of tens of thousands of people in the UK who have cosmetic surgery every year in an effort to enhance their appearance.
For the most part, your breast enlargement or neck lift will have gone well and there will be no complications from the procedure. Unfortunately, however, there are increasing instances where some cosmetic surgery has gone wrong and patients have suffered negligent cosmetic operations like a bad tummy tuck.
When a patient undergoes cosmetic surgery, the surgeon and clinic are legally required to uphold a duty of care to that patient and when that is not upheld the consequences for the victim can be very damaging psychologically and physically.
If, for example, your laser vein surgery has gone wrong and your surgeon or clinic has failed to meet the required standards of care during or after your treatment you may be able to make a cosmetic surgery claim for financial compensation.
And that’s where Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors can help you.

How the Claims Process Works with Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors
We’ll work with you in preparing a claim for financial compensation.
Preparing a case often involves taking detailed statements and obtaining full copies of your medical records. To do this in a thorough manner may take some time to do.
However, this is all part of the process we follow to ensure that you have the best possible chance of success of claiming compensation when your cosmetic surgery has gone wrong. And don’t worry, one of our expert clinical negligence solicitors will do this on your behalf.
When you bring a claim for cosmetic surgery negligence, as the claimant, it is required for you to prove two different points relating to your cosmetic surgery gone wrong:
- That the surgeon failed to carry out their responsibilities, this is known as ‘fault’. Fault means that the care your cosmetic surgeon gave you during your procedure was below standard for what could be expected of a reasonably competent and skilful specialist. You are not treated surgically in a way that you could reasonably have expected.
- That this ‘fault’ by the cosmetic surgeon has caused the suffering you’re now enduring. This is characterised as ‘avoidable harm’ or ‘causation’. ‘Avoidable harm’ simply means that it needs to be proved that the cosmetic surgery gone wrong caused you harm.
You may have reservations about making a cosmetic surgery negligence claim because of worries about having to appear in a courtroom. It is worth noting that the vast majority of cosmetic surgery compensation claims are won without in fact going to court.
For the very small minority of cases that do go to court, Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors are there with the victims of clinical negligence for every step of the process. We provide all the help and support needed for you to pursue your deserved claim for compensation.

Make a Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claim Now
There are time limits to making a cosmetic claim in England and Wales. Victims of clinical negligence are normally expected to start a cosmetic surgery claim within 3 years of the date of their procedure.
There are some side effects to most cosmetic surgery procedures and the recovery period from some surgeries may be weeks or months rather than days. Consequently it may not always be immediately clear that you’ve suffered from cosmetic surgery negligence.
It is prudent however to seek legal advice as soon as you realise that you have symptoms that may indicate negligent cosmetic surgery.
Talking to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors at the earliest opportunity will ensure that your case is investigated as soon as possible when the memory of what happened during or after your bad cosmetic surgery is still fresh in your mind.
Don’t delay, call us on 0800 634 0285 and start your cosmetic surgery compensation claims process now.
No Win, No Fee Compensation Claims
Perhaps you have concerns about how your claim for cosmetic negligence can be funded?
Funding your cosmetic compensation claim is actually straight-forward.
Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors work on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis. This is known as a Conditional Fee Arrangement where if your cosmetic surgery claim is successful, the other side will pay both your deserved compensation and your legal costs.
When your cosmetic surgery compensation claim is part of a Conditional Fee Agreement and your claim is unfortunately not successful, you are not liable for any of your solicitors’ costs.
