Dermal Filler Claims

Dermal fillers are used to reverse the appearance of wrinkles and to fill out facial lines such as a nose to mouth grooves and forehead lines. They are technically considered a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure.


The Cosmetic Process for Dermal Fillers

The procedure involves injecting a collagen material made of synthetic or natural substances into the skin to smooth contours and fill wrinkles in the face.

Claims for dermal fillers gone wrong

Dermal fillers are a very popular cosmetic procedure for both women and men attempting to rejuvenate their skin’s appearance as well as to enhance their complexion. While most cosmetic procedures including dermal fillers are carried out successfully in the UK there are unfortunately cases where the procedure for dermal fillers goes wrong.

When the cosmetic surgeon or clinic is responsible for a procedural error, then a cosmetic surgery law firm can make a claim for dermal filler negligence and secure compensation. If the patient is awarded compensation, their award can include damages for psychological and physical effects as well as restorative medical surgery where necessary.

Dermal fillers problems on the increase

Cosmetic surgeons are increasingly required to deal with the problems arising from dermal fillers, even when they are not responsible for the cosmetic procedure going wrong. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPs), the largest industry body, estimates that more than 80 percent of permanent dermal filler procedures have required corrective surgery or were deemed untreatable due to bad dermal fillers. They also found that almost 70 per cent of cosmetic surgeons have seen patients with complications from temporary dermal fillers in the last year alone.

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, the first legal practice in England and Wales dedicated to victims of negligent cosmetic surgery estimate that 10% of their cosmetic surgery claim enquiries are for cases where dermal fillers have gone wrong. The latest Government report on the industry has described dermal fillers simply as a ‘crisis waiting to happen’.

If you believe your dermal fillers have gone wrong following the cosmetic procedure, please call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from Michael Saul or one of the Cosmetic Claims team.

Why have dermal fillers done?

Despite the current concern about dermal fillers in official circles, it is still a very popular procedure. So why have it done at all?

A dermal fillers procedure can ‘rejuvenate’ the skin and give the impression of a more youthful appearance.. By injecting a substance under the skin which plumps up the area which has received the injection, dermal fillers can help to smooth away troublesome complexions and leave the skin plump and firm and the patient can look younger and refreshed. There are in fact more than 100 types of dermal filler injection procedures regularly used in the UK to deal with complexion issues like crow’s feet, forehead lines, acne pits and frown furrows.

If your experience with dermal fillers hasn’t left you satisfied and contact the specialist dermal fillers claims team at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 today.

The dermal fillers procedure

The cosmetic procedure is minimally invasive and quick, usually less than an hour. With virtually no recovery time required, the patient should be able to resume normal life straight away after treatment.

The dermal fillers procedure itself involves injecting a substance under the skin. This substance is either a temporary or permanent filler. Temporary dermal fillers are often collagen or  hyaluronic acid. Permanent dermal fillers are made from material that can remain in the body for many years.

Unfortunately dermal fillers have become a concern as there are no current requirements for a dermal filler practitioner to have any level of medical knowledge, training or previous experience to practise.
