Why finding out about cosmetic surgery claims is important
If you’ve been suffering with cosmetic surgery scars, poor health or depression since experiencing cosmetic surgery gone wrong, it’s very important you find out about the cosmetic surgery claims process. At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, we are highly experienced in assessing cosmetic surgery scars which signify cosmetic surgery negligence and know exactly what indicators to look for.
We help clients make successful cosmetic surgery claims resulting in large sums of compensation. To help you determine if your cosmetic surgery scars are due to cosmetic surgery negligence, here are some of the most common instances suggesting where cosmetic surgery could have gone wrong.
Breast Enlargement Scars
After a surgical incision is made during a breast implant procedure, two types of breast enlargement scars can occur either above or below the fold to indicate cosmetic surgery gone wrong. A keloid scar is an overgrowth of scar tissue at the site of a skin wound. The new tissue is elevated, rounded, and firm whilst a hypertrophic scar is a wound that heals to greater than normal size as a result of an aggressive lay down of collagen, contained in larger than normal skin cells.

Breast Reduction Scars
Complications leading to breast reduction scars are illustrated either around the nipple (areola), from one nipple to the crease below the breast or from one breast bone to the armpit along the crease below the breast. Such scarring that does not fade over time is a symptom of cosmetic surgery gone wrong.

Eyelid Surgery Scars
Incisions made during an eyelid cosmetic surgery procedure can result in eyelid scars but these are usually within or near normal creases and folds of the upper and lower eyelids. Cosmetic surgery gone wrong is illustrated by incisions which extend beyond the eyelid which are visible at the eye corners.

Facelift Surgery Scars
During a facelift operation a surgical cut is made in the hairline, down past the front of the ears and then up into the hairline again behind the ears. Face lift scars evident from this procedure in front of, or behind the ears can indicate cosmetic surgery negligence, usually due to removing too much skin or closing the incision with tension on the tissues.

Tummy Tuck Scars
A tummy tuck procedure is one of the most invasive cosmetic surgery operations with incisions made across the lower abdomen before stretched or torn muscles are then pulled together and excess fat removed. In most instances, you should wait to heal fully after your tummy tuck surgery before finding out about making a cosmetic surgery claim. This is because temporary side effects including tummy tuck scars, swelling, and abdomen numbness are common. However tummy tuck scars above the waistline which fail to flatten out or lighten in colour after 12 months, combined with ongoing numbness indicate the occurrence of cosmetic surgery negligence.

Brow Lift Surgery Scars

It also involves tightening any loose skin in the area and reducing excess fatty tissue. Potential complications of the operation can arise due to brow lift surgery negligence. We have dealt with examples of brow lift surgery gone wrong where significant brow lift scars are evident which are not concealed behind the hairline or fail to diminishover time.
