MENUMENU

Have you suffered an injury as a result of facelift surgery?

Facelift surgery, clinically known as Rhytidectomy, is a procedure used to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and other signs of ageing, with the goal of improving the overall appearance of the face and jaw. There are many reasons why someone may choose to have a facelift, although the most common are cosmetic-related. Facelifts can be carried out to correct a birth defect, counteract the ageing process, or simply to give the patient a confidence boost. It is a very common procedure in the UK, often performed alongside other surgeries.

To perform the facelift procedure, a facial plastic surgeon will lift and tighten the underlying muscles of the face to create more aesthetically pleasing contours and rejuvenate the facial structure. They then remove excess pockets of fat and skin that can contribute to an aged, tired appearance. There are several variations of the facelift procedure, but they all share the same ultimate goal: to reduce saggy skin and to improve the overall appearance of the face, which is of course our defining feature.

For the majority of patients, facelift surgery can be an excellent investment, providing a fresher, more youthful appearance for years to come. However, sometimes things can go wrong during surgery, due to the carelessness or negligence of medical professionals.

Possible complications resulting from a Rhytidectomy

Although uncommon, it is sadly not unheard of for facelifts to produce undesirable results that can have a significant impact on the patient’s life. You may be able to make a claim for cosmetic surgery negligence if you have suffered from the following:

  • Inappropriate or unnecessary scarring
  • Preventable infection
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Hairline distortion and hair loss
  • Loss of function and over-tightening due to excess skin removal
  • Disfiguration
  • Nerve damage
  • Long-term pain

Cosmetic surgery is not an easy decision – in addition to concerns about undergoing surgery, you have to factor in how much money the procedure will cost, as well as time spent off work recovering – and so it can be incredibly frustrating when it feels as if your surgery was not worth the timeand money you have invested in it. You may not only be dealing with the emotional effects of your substandardRhytidectomy, but you may also find yourself spending more money on correctional surgery, and taking additional time off work following a second procedure. All of this can leave you wishing you had never invested in the surgery in the first place.

We understand that this can be a difficult and distressing time. If you have been injured in a road traffic accident, making a claim for compensation may be the last thing you want to think about, but we would urge you to get the ball rolling and establish if you are eligible for compensation as soon as possible.

Claims can take considerable time to conclude, and in the meantime, your finances could be severely stretched. We deal with most cases on a ‘No win, No fee’basis, leaving you to focus on your recovery, rather than worrying about legal costs.

Attwood Solicitors will work hard to ensure a fast resolution for your case, without adding further hassle or stress to your life. Contact us today for a free consultation, expert advice, and support with your claim.

Determining liability is the first step in a Personal Injury case, and evidence will be required to prove that a third party was responsible for any injury or illness for which you are seeking compensation.

If you are unsure who is liable, or you are struggling to collect evidence, but still believe that you deserve compensation for your injuries, get in touch with our team immediately. We may be able to help build your case by talking with witnesses, experts, or other stakeholders to establish the facts.

After you’ve been involved in a Road Traffic Accident, it’s understandable that your main objective will be to recover from your experience and put it behind you. Claiming compensation for your accident is often a good way of doing this, as it not only provides financial support at a time when you need it the most, but should also help you feel that justice has been served.

We work tirelessly to ensure that each client is awarded the maximum compensation possible for their case. If you are successful in your claim, you may be awarded compensation for one or more of the following:

  • The injury sustained, including physical and mental damage. Compensation is awarded based on pain, suffering, and inability to resume ‘normal’ life.
  • Financial losses, including loss of earnings since the accident. Loss of potential future earnings may also be considered.
  • Out-of-pocket expenses including care costs, medical costs, travel to medical appointments and home help. (Please note: It’s important to keep any receipts for out-of-pocket expenses so that they can be included in any claim).
  • Future needs – It may be necessary to make adjustments in the future, such as adaptations at home, which may also be claimed for.

Our experience and expertise in Personal Injury cases will help you to secure the compensation you deserve.

If you have sustained a personal injury, seeking compensation may be the last thing on your mind, but it’s important to be aware that there are time limits for taking legal action. Don’t worry, we understand that it may be difficult for you to talk about what has happened, but please rest-assured that our sympathetic team is here to support you, and will make the process as simple and straightforward as possible.

The first step is simply to get in touch with us. You can give us a call, email us, or complete our online enquiry form – whatever feels most comfortable for you.

We will take some basic details and information about what has happened, before introducing you to a carefully selected solicitor who specialises in your type of claim. They will then guide you through the rest of the process. (You can find out more about what that involves in the Attwood Solicitor’sGuide to Personal Injury Claims).

We deal with most cases under a Conditional Fee Agreement, also known as ‘No win, No fee’. This means:

  • No upfront payments
  • Nothing to pay if your claim does not succeed
  • No risk
