    Have you suffered medical negligence at any stage during your cosmetic procedure, whether during your assessment, during the operation, or in aftercare? If so, you might be entitled to claim compensation for your pain, suffering, lost earnings, and remedial procedures. Please contact our Brighton office to speak with a member of the team about our services.

    The statistics

    In 2013 statistics from the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) showed that 50122 people underwent some form of cosmetic surgery. Indeed, the popularity of these ‘corrective’ operations seems to be increasing, since in 2012 there were significantly fewer (45365) individuals going under the knife.

    The most popular surgeries that year were breast augmentations, with 11135 people choosing to undergo this operation, and blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) which was undergone by 7808 individuals.

    However, plastic surgery remains a complicated and potentially hazardous procedure, and it should not be undertaken lightly. Just as in all operations, cosmetic surgery can go wrong. This might not only leave the patient feeling depressed and withdrawn, but could also put their life at risk.

    What could go wrong?

    For the most part surgeons will try their hardest to use all of their expertise and experience in order to successfully perform and complete an operation. Nevertheless, however qualified and well-practiced they are, they are still only human, and are prone to making errors in judgement.

    The NHS website states that the possible complications of plastic surgery include, but are not limited to:

    • Bleeding
    • Pain and discomfort
    • Infection
    • Scarring
    • Implant failure
    • Skin graft or flap failure

    With these physical complications can come risks to health, including psychological problems if an operation causes the patient to suffer long-term injuries and a reduced quality of life.

    Plastic Surgery Claims experiences
    • 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 helped X get further compensation and access to services to aid in his rehabilitation. X was a subject of sexual abuse from his step father between the ages of 5 and 7. Initial application for compensation was made in 1990 and X was awarded £10,000. After several attempts at his own life, X decided to contact Jonathan to seek further 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. Initially the Trust denied they were responsible for Baby B’s death but after negotiations the Trust admitted responsibility and Jonathan was able to negotiate an out of court settlement for Baby B’s parents.
