Dermal Filler Claims for Compensation
Have you suffered as a result of negligent dermal fillers? Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors can help.
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. Dermal fillers involve injecting a collagen material made of synthetic or natural substances into the skin, to smooth contours and fill wrinkles in the face. You can find out more information regarding the procedure using our Dermal Filler Process Guide.
Claims for Negligent Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers, otherwise known as facial fillers, are a very popular cosmetic procedure for those 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 goes wrong.
Dermal filler negligence is all too common because of substandard cosmetic treatment, often provided by inexperienced high street clinics administering fillers of unproven substances. The problems that can result from the cosmetic negligence are extremely distressing. They can include:
- Necrosis (the skin dying)
- Gross infection
- Migration of the filler product
- Pronounced facial swelling
- Facial collapse
Dermal Filler problems on the increase
Cosmetic surgeons are increasingly required to deal with issues arising from negligent 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.
