    Cosmetic surgery has become extremely popular over the last decade and not just for the rich and famous. Nose jobs, breast implants and liposuction are just some of the most popular and regularly performed treatments available.

    The popularity of these procedures has caused a sharp rise in the number of clinics and cosmetic surgeons operating in the UK. Unfortunately, not all of them are fully qualified to carry out the procedures they offer.

    Occasionally, like all surgical procedures, things can go wrong and if you’ve had a cosmetic treatment which has not been carried out correctly, and you have suffered harm and financial loss, you may wish to consider making a cosmetic surgery compensation claim.

    “I cannot thank you enough for the competent manner in which my case has been handled from beginning to end. I feel the amount offered has been due to the perseverance, professionalism and presentation of my case by you and your company.”

    Why claim?

    Cosmetic procedures are predominantly elective and rarely a medical necessity. It is a choice that is made, often while knowing the risks involved. However, surgeons carrying out these procedures have a duty of care to their patients and while all surgery is risky, even cosmetic procedures require the same standard of good practice which would be applied to treatment which is medically necessary. If they have failed in this duty of care, you have the right to seek compensation.

    Not only can a cosmetic surgery compensation claim help to get your life back on track, by providing funds for corrective surgery and rehabilitation, it can also highlight bad practitioners.

    If a surgeon is carrying out procedures that they aren’t fully qualified to perform, the General Medical Council needs to be aware of it. You could, potentially, stop the same thing from happening to somebody else.

    Bad cosmetic surgery can have long-term negative effects on a person’s life so you should definitely feel confident in seeking the compensation you deserve.

    Different types of claims

    There are a few different types of damages you can claim in respect of cosmetic surgery compensation. It will depend upon the severity of damage caused and whether there has been physical and/or psychological damage caused by the procedure. Maybe you’ve had to take time off work to recover? Is your health currently at risk because of the work you had done?

    Your ability to claim will also depend upon whether the surgeon fully explained the risks to you. A reputable surgeon will always sit down with you and make sure you understand all of the risks before continuing. If they didn’t, you have a good chance of winning the case.

    Making sure you get the right help

    Getting the right help from an experienced solicitor will ensure you receive the full amount of compensation your claim warrants. Experienced medical negligence solicitors can provide advice on whether you have a good case, as well as representation if the case goes to court.

    It is important to ensure you choose an experienced, respected solicitor that has at least 10 years’ experience in their chosen field.

    Cosmetic surgery compensation claims have become more frequent over the past few years. It is important to report any misconduct and negligence that you may have experienced. Appointing a good solicitor will give you peace of mind and help you to get justice for the negligence you have suffered.

    • Jonathan was able to help the husband of a 50 year old woman claim compensation after the hospital failed to diagnose her cancer. Mrs L attended hospital complaining of pain in her abdomen. She was discharged without further tests but unfortunately she died of thyroid cancer a few months later. Jonathan argued that the chance for a liver biopsy was missed during her visit to hospital and although this would not affect the unfortunate outcome, palliative care could have been arranged to ease Mrs L’s suffering. Jonathan was able to secure Mrs L’s husband a five figure sum in compensation.
    • Jonathan has also helped the family of a 71 year old man claim compensation after a complication in his surgery caused his death. Mr R was suffering from chest pains and was admitted to hospital for tests. He was found to have an issue with his heart and doctors attempted to rectify this with a surgical procedure. Unfortunately during this procedure an air pocket had got into one of his blood vessels which caused Mr R’s death. With expert medical evidence Jonathan was able to secure Mr R’s family £75,000 in compensation.

Jonathan was able to secure X £200,000 in compensation and an overall award of £1,200,000 inclusive of state benefits. More importantly Jonathan then arranged the Special Needs Trust to support X’s rehabilitation.
    • Jonathan helped the parents of Baby B claim compensation after a failure in care during labour resulted in Baby B’s death.
