Cosmetic Surgery

Our cosmetic surgery solicitors deal with a wide range of cosmetic surgery claims due to medical negligence in carrying out cosmetic surgery.  

 

For free and confidential legal advice speak to one of our cosmetic surgery solicitors today. Our cosmetic surgery solicitors provide nationwide coverage.

 

We offer a NO WIN NO FEE service which simply means you get to keep ALL of your compensation. Further, you won't have to pay us a penny even if we lose.

 

"Cosmetic surgery can be hugely expensive to undergo and we appreciate that some patients have saved up for many years before undergoing cosmetic surgery. Equally, if you have taken out a loan to pay for the cosmetic surgery it can be a huge financial as well as an emotional blow to you when you realise you have unfortuantely received negligent treatment. This is where AIA's expert solicitors can assist you."

 

At AIA Solicitors, we recognise that compensation won't remedy the suffering caused by negligent cosmetic surgery. On the other hand, our lawyers are able to help patients recover both physically and emotionally, by securing the money they need for corrective surgery and can instruct medical experts to help them get their lives back on course.

 

In short we will work hard to obtain compensation for you to undergo remedial surgery and help put your life back on track. 

 

We also believe that by pursuing these cases we can increase patient awareness to assist in preventing such cases from ever happening again in the future.

 

The number of cosmetic surgery procedures carried out in the UK is rising each year.  It was recently estimated that over 100,000.00 such procedures are performed, with the number of men undergoing cosmetic surgery increasing rapidly.


Cosmetic surgery is any surgical procedure performed for the purposes of appearance. Reconstructive surgery is a form of cosmetic surgery. This is one example of how cosmetic surgery is not only superficial and beautifying. It fills the purpose of allowing those whom have disfigured portions of their body to regain their self-esteem by undergoing cosmetic procedures.


As with any surgical procedure, cosmetic surgery carries with it certain risks, such as infection and complications with the anaesthetic.  As the number of procedures undertaken rises, so will the number of adverse outcomes and, naturally, the number of cosmetic surgery claims.


A worrying problem with cosmetic surgery is the number of people holding themselves out as cosmetic surgery experts.  Unfortunately, anyone can set up a cosmetic surgery practice.


Cosmetic surgery claims stand out from other surgical negligence claims due to the psychological factors that poor cosmetic surgery carries with it.  The impact of negligent cosmetic surgery can often far exceed that of other surgical negligence claims.

 

Surgery is not 100 percent safe. Even with a skilled surgeon, things could go wrong. It could be that the procedure counteracts with the patient’s current medications. Or, the patient is allergic to certain medications used in the procedure. The surgeon could make errors too. This is particularly true if the doctor is not experienced in the procedure.

 

Medical negligence could occur during or after the surgery. The patient may suffer from a botched cosmetic surgery procedure such as a tummy tuck, breast augmentation, nose jobs and others. The patient may feel mental anguish if the doctor has not fully informed them of the possible risks, side effects and alternative treatment options. When this happens, the patient may be able to seek compensation.
