The Cosmetic Surgery Claims Process
by Mike Saul, Head of Cosmetic Negligence Claims
When a patient suffers from a cosmetic surgery procedure going wrong, the consequences can be devastating, physically, emotionally and financially.
If you have suffered cosmetic surgery negligence at the hands of a surgeon who has acted in an incompetent manner, you may be entitled to financial compensation. Nothing can make up for the distress caused by a cosmetic procedure gone wrong, but cosmetic surgery compensation may enable you to start the process of recovery.
All medical practitioners including cosmetic surgeons are obliged to take all reasonable precautions to safeguard their patients’ well-being while they are in their care.

How Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors Can Help You
When we manage a successful claim for cosmetic surgery negligence compensation, the process normally begins either within three years of the date of your cosmetic procedure or in the three years subsequent to your first symptoms of clinical negligence.
The first step in the claims procedure is an examination done by an independent plastic surgeon. This cosmetic surgeon will be an expert in assessing the clinical consequences when cosmetic surgery negligence has occurred.
Detailed statements from the appropriate medical personnel are then taken and copies of your medical records are obtained to ascertain if your cosmetic surgery has been performed at an acceptable medical standard.
It is important to note that if there is a successful outcome to your claim for surgical negligence, then the financial outcome should include compensation for the difference a bad cosmetic surgery has made to your quality of life as well as the physical and emotional difficulties you have suffered.
In addition, we can help you recover any financial costs you have incurred including loss of income due to the consequences of the clinical negligence as well as surgery to correct the botched cosmetic procedure.
With our experience of representing many victims of negligent plastic surgery, Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors understands this claims process inside out and will provide you with all the help and support you need to make a successful claim.

How has Your Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong?
There are many different kinds of cosmetic surgery commonly undergone in the UK every year. Cosmetic treatments from breast implant surgery to nose jobs to face lifts and liposuction are now commonplace. Unfortunately so are the traumatic consequences when cosmetic surgery goes wrong.
Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors have managed cases of clinical negligence for every type of plastic surgery and we understand the huge emotional and physical costs that can ensue from cosmetic surgery gone wrong.
If you believe that your cosmetic surgery could have gone wrong, then there are some general symptoms which could indicate surgical negligence. While this depends fully on the type of cosmetic surgery you have undergone the following symptoms may lead to a claim for compensation:
- Management of bleeding
- Loss of sensation or numbness
- Inappropriate Scarring
- Nerve damage
- Management of infection
- Necrosis or its management

Our Assessment of Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong
Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors will provide you with an assessment of your symptoms of plastic surgery negligence. Taken together with an independent cosmetic surgeon’s report on your case of surgical negligence, we will try to establish how the surgeon did not fulfil his duty of care to you and how this failure to uphold the proper professional standards led directly to your surgery going wrong.
When we are working on your behalf, we must prove that your cosmetic surgeon was at fault, that he indeed failed to carry out his responsibilities. We must also prove that this failure caused the physical and mental difficulties you are now suffering.
We can proceed with a case for compensation once we have established those two elements of your claim. When we go forward with your claim, you may be able to claim compensation for the following consequences of your surgery going wrong:
- Physical injuries
- Emotional distress
- Loss of earnings due to cosmetic surgery negligence
- Corrective surgery expenses
- The cost of care due to the negligent cosmetic surgeon
You can depend on the expertise of Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors to assess the appropriate level of compensation that you should receive and to work directly towards achieving a successful outcome.
This is especially important during the complicated calculation of the financial compensation you deserve for the psychological damage your negligent surgery may have inflicted on you.
