Abi Clarke and Bodyshocking Cosmetic Surgery Negligence

How Reality TV Star Underwent Plastic Surgery Gone Badly Wrong

The disastrous cosmetic surgery experience of former The Only Way is Essex star, Abi Clarke was recently aired on the Channel 4 programme Bodyshockers: Nips, Tucks and Tattoos.

Bodyshockers focused on Abi’s dermal filler procedure gone wrong as she discussed with host Katie Piper how she had had to endure six cosmetic procedures to attempt to repair her lips.

Bodyshockers is a TV show that focuses on people who regret their existing cosmetic surgery or have had surgery that went badly wrong and introduces them to others who desire the same type of cosmetic enhancements. The programme highlights the fact that when you have cosmetic surgery, you want to be sure that your body is in the best possible surgical hands.

Michael Saul, Partner and Head of Cosmetic Negligence Claims for Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors has seen at first hand the effects that cosmetic surgery negligence can have on patients. Talk to Michael today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated Cosmetic Claims team if you’ve suffered from cosmetic medical negligence.

Hasty Decision Causes Negligent Plastic Surgery

While negligent cosmetic surgery can potentially happen with any patient as no surgery is free from risk, the possibility of a cosmetic surgery negligence claim being made are substantially increased if there is any doubt about your plastic surgeon’s qualifications and ethics.

Abi Clarke had gone into a cosmetic clinic for an exfoliation but was convinced by the clinic to have a dermal filler procedure at the same time on the basis that the cosmetic treatment would only take ten minutes. However Abi didn’t check the qualifications of the cosmetic technician and she suffered a bad reaction to the fillers; her lips swelled so much that she almost ended up with permanent facial damage.

When a dermal filler procedure goes wrong, a patient can suffer necrosis where the skin dies, pronounced facial or lip swelling, gross infection and even facial collapse.

Dermal Filler Disaster

Abi Clarke had the dermal filler procedure as she thought she thought having fuller lips would boost her self-confidence.

Unfortunately Abi’s lips reacted badly to the dermal filler used in the procedure and her lips went rock hard and split in the middle. As a consequence, she suffered six months of ulcers, blisters and scar tissue, leaving her in considerable distress. The TV reality star had to undergo six reconstructive cosmetic treatments and could suffer from further intermittent infections in the future having had such a bad dermal filler experience.

If you’ve had a bad experience during or after your cosmetic surgery, you may have suffered from plastic surgery negligence. To discuss your potentially negligent cosmetic surgery with an expert, call us on 0800 634 0285 to discuss with our no win no fee solicitors how you could make a claim for financial compensation.

Research before Repent

Unfortunately for Abi, her decision to decide in haste on a cosmetic surgery procedure left her with considerable negative after effects. For any patient considering having cosmetic surgery, a decision should only be made after research and reflection. Here are some areas that you should think about before making your decision to undergo cosmetic surgery.

Realistic Cosmetic Surgery Decisions

To make sure you don’t suffer plastic surgery negligence you should be absolutely clear and realistic about what you want from your cosmetic surgery. You also need to be aware of any potential side potential side effects during or after the operation.


Quality your Plastic Surgery Decision

Your future health depends on the skills of your cosmetic surgeon so you should always investigate the qualifications of your cosmetic surgeon thoroughly. Make sure that your proposed cosmetic surgeon is fully trained and qualified in cosmetic surgery.

As a first step, you can look at UK industry bodies BAAPS (British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) and BAPRAS (British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons). Membership of either organisation is a good indication of a cosmetic consultant being fully trained and qualified as a plastic or cosmetic surgeon.


Consult your Cosmetic Surgeon

To avoid cosmetic surgery negligence, consult your plastic surgeon in person. You should always a pre-operative consultation appointment with your plastic surgeon where you can ask how often they have carried out the procedure you want, and where your cosmetic surgeon can provide all the detail you need to base this important decision on.


Avoid Hard-selling Cosmetic Surgery Clinics

The cosmetic surgery clinic that you choose for your operation should never pressure you to sign up for plastic surgery or try to have you make a hasty decision like Abi Clarke did.

Don’t be pressured by talk of special offers or loyalty schemes. If you feel any pressure at all from the clinic or surgeon, who seem to be more interested in getting you to sign up than explaining how the procedure works then leave the clinic.

If you’ve experienced any cosmetic surgery negligence like Abi, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
