Botched Up Bodies on Channel Five

Michael Saul is the UK’s Leading Expert on Cosmetic Surgery Negligence

A new series of the TV programme ‘Botched up Bodies’ started recently on Channel 5 highlighting instances where cosmetic surgery has gone badly wrong. The programmes include interviews with the distressed and damaged patients who are desperate to have their bad cosmetic surgery corrected by the UK’s leading surgeons.

The cosmetic surgery industry in the UK is now worth billions and forecast to reach £3.6 billion by the end of 2015. ‘Botched up Bodies’ has claimed that of the over 100,000 cosmetic surgery procedures done in the UK last year, as many as five per cent were surgeries that had gone wrong.

That’s not surprising to Michael Saul, Partner and Head of Cosmetic Negligence Claims for Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors; Michael has been helping the victims of terrible cosmetic surgery for over ten years. Talk to Michael Saul today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated Cosmetic Claims team and begin your claim for financial compensation.

Breast Augmentation in Botched Up Bodies

In the TV programme, ‘Botched Up Bodies’, there are many different types of cosmetic surgery gone wrong.  The botched cosmetic surgeries featured in the programme include breast augmentations gone wrong, a deformed face after a bad face lift, and unsightly scars following a procedure that went disastrously wrong for dermal filler injections.

In the early episodes of this series, there have been several breast operations that have gone wrong.

31-year-old Laura from Hampshire:

Had a breast enlargement operation which left her suffering from necrosis. When the flesh on her breast died, she lost her left breast areola and had severe scarring on her left nipple.

22-year-old Amy from Dorking:

Was also left scarred after a breast augmentation operation, she suffered post surgery from severely uneven breasts and abnormally large areolae. Her right breast implant was also rippling in her chest.

Finally Sue, a 54-year-old from Preston:

Had a breast reduction procedure and also developed necrosis. As the cosmetic surgeon took off her bandages, her nipple came off with them. When she had further corrective surgery, she was left with uneven breasts and no nipple.

Michael Saul is no stranger to these results of negligent cosmetic surgeries. He has many years experience in dealing with breast surgeries going wrong and providing comfort and relief to victims when they are awarded substantial cosmetic surgery compensation.

Botched Up Bodies and Dermal Filler Negligence

It’s not only breast enlargement negligence that has taken centre stage in the new series of ‘Botched Up Bodies’, in addition, there are some cases where dermal fillers have gone seriously wrong. Dermal fillers in the UK are minimally regulated and covered by only the same level of regulation as toothbrushes so this area of the cosmetic surgery industry can and does cause considerable distress for victims of dermal fillers gone wrong.

One episode featured 52-year-old Alex who had permanent dermal filler injected under her eyes and into her face. Unfortunately for Alex, 8 years on, the dermal filler started to migrate and swell, and she suffered on two occasions with infections that almost killed her. She has no option but to have this dangerous dermal filler removed as soon as possible before she could be hospitalised with another potentially lethal infection.

And then there is Hannah, a 33-year-old from Northampton, who had a dermal filler injected into her lips but a few years later when the dermal filler began to swell, her bottom lip dropped down to one side.

As one of the leading solicitors in the cosmetic surgery negligence field, Michael Saul took a landmark legal action against doctors and clinics that had provided a facial cosmetic treatment called Isolagen to a group of Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors’ clients. In a groundbreaking judgment in May 2014, the Court of Appeal decided that the doctors were  liable for the contents of the product manufacturer’s literature.

If you’ve had the unfortunate experience of having a dermal filler procedure go wrong on you, then speak to our expert cosmetic negligence solicitors on 0800 634 0285. Draw on their experience with negligent cosmetic surgery and make a claim for compensation.
