How the Most Popular Cosmetic Surgeries Can Go Wrong
Plastic Surgery Negligence on the Rise in UK
Consumer spending of £3.6 billion is predicted for the cosmetic surgery industry in 2015. As the numbers of plastic surgeries like breast implants surgery, facelifts and neck lifts grow, their increase has been accompanied by a worrying rise in the number of cases where cosmetic medical negligence has occurred and patients are left in pain and scarred.
When there has been an error made by a cosmetic surgeon or clinic then a law firm of clinical negligence solicitors can make a cosmetic surgery negligence claim on your behalf. If you win your cosmetic surgery claim, the award can include substantial medical negligence compensation for the emotional and physical damage caused.

Clinical Negligence Increases across All Cosmetic Surgeries
Cosmetic surgery can be shown to have had a positive effect on a patient’s self-esteem and confidence and that is no surprise. Modern society places a huge pressure on its citizens to look as close to an ideal as possible. It is no surprise that over a quarter of Britons would consider having a cosmetic surgical procedure like breast enlargement, nose surgery or a face lift.
This is despite a continued increase in the number of clinical negligence claims in the UK every year.
At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, we are highly experienced in assessing the symptoms which indicate cosmetic surgery negligence. We look below at the most common cosmetic surgeries and how they can, unfortunately, go wrong.
Claim Breast Surgery Compensation
Surgery for breast implants has been the most popular cosmetic surgery in the UK for the last ten years with an amazing 30,000 boob implant surgeries performed last year. When breast enlargement negligence occurs however the problems caused can affect the breast surgery patient profoundly. Breast implants negligence can cause:
- Ptosis or sagging of the breast
- Asymmetry – lopsided or different sized breasts
- Bottoming out when the implant falls to the bottom of the breast
- Cottage loaf effect, where the breast has a double instead of single mound appearance
If you have any of the above symptoms of breast surgery gone wrong, then speak to our team of breast implants solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 and start the process to claim breast enlargement compensation now.
When Eyelid Surgery Leaves Negligent Scars
Eyelid surgery or blepharoplasty is carried out to remove excess skin and fat around the eyes but it may leave some severe problems in its wake if there is eyelid negligence due to an incompetent plastic surgeon or cosmetic clinic. If you have any of the following indications of an eyelid surgery gone wrong, then you may be forced to make an eyelid surgery claim for compensation:
- Lopsided or difference in appearance of both eyes
- Droopiness of the lower eyelid (ectropian).
- Blurred or impaired vision
- Partial or complete blindness although this is rare
Do you have any of the above symptoms of a blepharoplasty surgery gone wrong?
To start the eyelid surgery claims process, talk to our eyelid surgery compensation solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from Michael Saul, Head of Cosmetic Claims so you can make a claim for eyelid surgery compensation.
The Results of Neck Lift Negligence
A neck lift also known as a platysmaplasty or a cervicoplasty removes excess skin and fatty tissue from around the neck and jaw in an attempt to make the patient look younger. A neck lift is sometimes performed in conjunction with a face lift. When neck lift negligence occurs during a cosmetic surgery the resulting problems can be:
- Inappropriate scarring
- Neck tightness where the skin has been stretched too much during the neck lift surgery
Let our no win no fee medical negligence solicitors advise you if you’re suffering from any of these symptoms of a negligent neck lift. You can start the neck lift compensation process by picking up the telephone and calling us on 0800 634 0285 for reasonable advice on your medical negligence claim.
How Facelift Surgery Can Scar You
A facelift operation or rhytidectomy is performed to counteract age-related problems like crow’s feet, forehead creases and jowls. If you think you may have suffered a negligent face lift that should prompt facelift surgery compensation then you may have one or some of the following symptoms:
- Permanent nerve damage or numbness to the face nerves
- Pixie ear deformity or lopsided ears
- Over-tightening of skin
- Necrosis – discolouration or loss of skin
Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors’ face lift claims team can guide you through the often difficult facelift claims process when you call them on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our face lift solicitors.
Increased Breast Reductions Means Increased Compensation Claims
Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty attempts to reduce the volume and weight of breasts and in so doing help women alleviate the distressing body pain that can go with large breasts. A negligent breast reduction surgery may mean that the following symptoms have occurred for the victim of a breast reduction gone wrong:
- Droopy or ptotic breasts after breast reduction surgery
- Ugly and unsightly scarring
- Asymmetrical or uneven breasts and nipples
- Loss of the nipple itself or loss of nipple sensation
The specialist breast reduction lawyers at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors’ claims team can guide you through the often difficult compensation process when you call them on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our breast reduction team.
