We have a team of lawyers who are highly experienced in dealing with cosmetic surgery claims and have successfully recovered compensation for many victims of botched cosmetic procedures. You can read about one recent case here. That case, a rhinoplasty (or ‘nose job’), involved a well-known cosmetic surgeon at a reputable Harley Street clinic. It shows that even the nation’s best cosmetic surgeons can make mistakes, and the consequences can be devatating for the patient.
Not every cosmetic surgery claim involves a surgical mistake. Cosmetic surgery is often associated with strong personal expectations. Part of the duty of any cosmetic surgeon is to explore those expectations with the patient at the outset and to ensure there is clear guidance about what can reasonably be expected from the procedure. Failure to properly manage those expectations, or fully discuss the options and risks with the patient, can lead to a compensation claim being made on the basis that the patient has not given fully informed consent to surgery.
