Cosmetic treatments can be very varied, ranging from straightforward hair removal to complex surgical procedures, the vast majority of which are carried out privately.

Frequently, surgeons operate privately as small partnerships or limited companies and when something goes wrong resolving complaints can be a complex process.

Although there are many different types of treatment, the most common complaints are as a result of the following procedures:

  • Breast Implants
  • Brow Lift
  • Chemical Peel
  • Dental Implants
  • Dermal fillers/Face fillers
  • Facelift
  • Liposuction
  • Microdermabrasion
  • Tummy Tuck

Injuries resulting from negligently performed breast surgery can have particularly distressing consequences for patients. Particular risks associated with breast surgery include, bleeding, infection and leaking implants associated with a product fault.

Other errors made in cosmetic treatment can have an equally catastrophic effect. Negligently administered chemical peels or errors in brow lifts can lead to pain, suffering, permanent facial scarring and disfigurement. Whilst there are many expected side-effects such as bruising, swelling, and scarring associated with a brow lift, these will improve after a relatively short period of time. However, there are a number of more serious, long-term complications which may require further remedial surgery including accumulation of fluid under the skin, asymmetrical eyebrows, permanently raised eyebrows, nerve damage and paralysis of the brow and forehead area.

Our specialist medical negligence lawyers are very experienced in dealing with these particular cases. If you believe you may have a claim against your surgeon, please contact a team member for a free initial consultation.
