If you or a family member has suffered from cosmetic surgery that went wrong, you may be able to make a claim for cosmetic surgery compensation.
Cosmetic Surgery CompensationThe number of people undergoing cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK increases considerably year after year. As the number of procedures increases so does the number of people claiming for compensation when the procedures go wrong. If you think you have suffered from failed cosmetic surgery, you may be eligible to claim compensation.
Cosmetic surgeries that could go wrong:
- TEETH WHITENING
- LASER TREAMENT
- BREAST AUGMENTATION
- SURGICAL AND NON SURGICAL PROCEDURES
What plastic surgeons should/should not do:
- Explain everything that is involved in the surgery and what options you have.
- Inform you of all the risks associated with the procedure and ensure you understand.
- Meet you for the consultation before you decide to go through with the procedure. You surgeon should also discuss the procedure and answer any questions that you may have.
- Let you have a cool down period after the consultation so have the opportunity to consider all of your options and change your mind.
Should not do
- Carry out cosmetic surgery without first meeting you for a consultation.
- Give unrealistic outlooks of what the surgery may achieve.
- Persuade you to go through with the procedure when you are unsure as to whether you want the surgery.
