Cosmetic Surgery NegligenceDoctors, plastic surgeons and other medical practitioners have a duty to ensure your well-being and safety while you are in their care. If a mistake was made during your cosmetic surgery treatment, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries and losses.

Our experienced solicitors can take on most types of cosmetic surgery claim, including:

Before performing cosmetic surgery, the medical practitioner should discuss any known risks involved in the procedure. If there are alternative procedures available then these should be explained to you.

By its very nature cosmetic surgery is not something that has to be carried out on an emergency basis. The patient should be allowed enough time to think it over and weigh up the risks of the treatment before proceeding.

If a negligent surgical procedure was the result of a cosmetic surgeon's incorrect, or misleading advice or guidance, this could be deemed a breached duty of care. This would be taken into account if a claim for compensation was brought against them.
