Women and, increasingly, men are spending vast sums of money on cosmetic surgery to improve the way that they look. With clinics and surgeons taking on so many procedures, mistakes are inevitable. Some of the most shocking medical negligence cases that our solicitors at Graham Coffey & Co have dealt with involved patients who have undergone cosmetic surgery. Surgical mistakes often negatively impact not only a patient's health but also his or her confidence and well-being. Furthermore, significant costs are associated with correcting cosmetic surgery errors.
Holding Negligent Doctors, Surgeons and Other Medical Professionals Accountable for Your Injury
Contact our experienced lawyers for advice and advocacy if you believe a doctor, surgeon, nurse or another medical professional negligently performed your cosmetic surgery, including:
- Botox injections
- Collagen injections
- Skin graft
- Face lift
- Rhinoplasty (nose job)
- Breast augmentation (implants), including defective/leaking breast implants (PIP)
- Breast reduction
- Tummy tuck
Common injuries that indicate cosmetic negligence may have occurred include scars, burns, poor results, puffy eyes, nerve damage, needle stick injuries and hepatitis.
It is important to hire a solicitor who has significant experience handling these unique claims. When you file a claim, it will be your lawyer's job to prove that negligence occurred, and that the defendant acted in a way that was below the standard of care (i.e. not at the level that most other doctors or professionals would have met).
At Graham Coffey & Co. Solicitors, we have successfully achieved results for many victims of cosmetic negligence.
Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Case Study
We represented Mr H. who underwent a procedure at a plastic surgery clinic to insert filler into his cheek. Not only was the wrong type of filler used but also the procedure was administered by an unqualified member of staff and too much filler was injected. Mr H. had to undergo surgery to remove the filler and was left with scars on his face.
