- Deformity of the ears or part of the ears
- Uneven or asymmetrical ears
- Excessive bruising and swelling
- Inappropriate scarring

How long do I have to file a compensation claim for ear reshaping surgery?
In the UK, the general rule is that you have three years from the date of the negligent ear reshaping surgery, or from the date you first became aware that you might have a claim, to file a compensation claim. However, there can be exceptions to this rule, such as in cases that involve minors or those lacking mental capacity. It is highly advisable to seek legal advice as soon as you suspect negligence to ensure you do not miss the deadline.
At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, we have a team of experts who are able to advise you on the exact timescales and the steps involved in the process. Do not delay in contacting us if you believe you may have a claim.
What evidence do I need to support my otoplasty compensation claim?
To support a claim for otoplasty negligence, you must gather various forms of evidence. This may include:
Medical records: these provide proof of the surgery and the details surrounding it. These can be requested from your GP or the hospital where the surgery was performed.
Photographic evidence: clear photos of your ears before and after the surgery can help demonstrate the extent of the damage or disfigurement caused by the procedure.
Witness statements: if there were any individuals present before, during, or after the procedure who can attest to what happened, their statements could be crucial.
Expert medical opinion: a report from an independent medical expert is typically required to confirm that the standards of care provided fell below acceptable levels.
Financial evidence: if the negligent surgery has caused you to lose earnings or incur additional costs, you should keep a record of these.
It is important to seek professional legal advice to ensure you gather all the necessary evidence to substantiate your claim. Our experienced team at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors is here to guide you through this process. In most cases, we will be able to gather this evidence for you.

How much compensation can I expect to receive for complications related to otoplasty?
The exact amount of compensation you might receive for complications related to otoplasty can vary greatly as it is based on the specifics of your case. Compensation awards take into account factors such as the severity of your injury, the impact on your quality of life, the extent of any additional medical treatment required, and the impact on your ability to work.
For an estimation, contact our team at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors. Our experts will be able to evaluate your case and provide a more accurate assessment based on the details of your situation.
Can I claim compensation for other related expenses, such as corrective procedures, travel costs and loss of earnings?
You can claim compensation for additional costs incurred as a result of your negligent otoplasty. This is known as 'special damages' and can cover a range of costs including:
Corrective procedures: if you need further surgery or medical treatment to correct the damage caused by the initial operation, these costs can be included in your claim.
Travel costs: You can claim for travel expenses related to your medical treatment or legal proceedings.
Loss of earnings: If the negligence has affected your ability to work, either temporarily or permanently, you can claim for these lost earnings.
It is important to keep detailed records and receipts of these additional expenses, as they will be crucial evidence in your claim.
Will I need to attend court for my otoplasty compensation claim?
In most cases, it is unlikely that you will need to attend court for your otoplasty compensation claim. The vast majority of personal injury claims are settled out of court.
However, if your case cannot be resolved through negotiation, it may be necessary to go to court. If this happens, our dedicated medical negligence claims solicitors will provide comprehensive support and guide you through every step of the court process. We will ensure that you are fully prepared, and we will be there to represent you, fighting robustly on your behalf. Rest assured, our priority is to achieve the best possible outcome for you.
