    Cosmetic procedures

    Cosmetic procedure claims

    Cosmetic surgeons have a duty of care to their patients, including before and after the procedure. If your cosmetic surgeon has been negligent, you main be suffering physically and emotionally, and be entitled to make a claim for compensation.

    It is possible to make a claim for medical negligence for any of the following reasons

    • if you have not been provided with adequate information regarding both the procedure and the potential risks involved
    • if your cosmetic procedure was not performed to an acceptable standard
    • if a defective product was used during your procedure, which could lead to infection and other serious problems
    • if you were not provided with the correct after-care for your procedure, including advice, information and medication

    It is possible to make a claim for medical negligence during any type of cosmetic procedure, with the most common being breast augmentations, rhinoplasty surgery, liposuction, facelifts, hair transplants and laser eye surgery.

    At Watermans, we understand the physical and emotional effects of receiving a botched cosmetic procedure. Through the fault of your cosmetic surgeon, you may now be left disfigured and scarred, or with permanent internal muscle or nerve damage. If the botched procedure wasn’t your fault, then you could be entitled to compensation. Speak to one of our expert personal injury solicitors today to start your claim.

    Making a claim

    How do I make a cosmetic procedure claim?

    If you or a loved one have suffered physically or psychologically as a result of a botched cosmetic procedure within the last three years, you may be entitled to compensation. It may seem like a daunting task, but Watermans are here to help you. We offer straightforward legal advice, so that you can start your claim with peace of mind. We handle the legal side of things, so that you can concentrate on getting your life back on track.

    The implications of botched cosmetic procedures can be both physically damaging and psychologically long-lasting. Any mistakes made may need to be corrected through further cosmetic surgery, so this makes pursuing a compensation claim vital. You could receive financial support for any further treatments needed, for any loss of earnings, and hold the at-fault party responsible for their negligence.

    Watermans specialise in all types of cosmetic procedure claims, ensuring you receive the compensation and settlement that you deserve for your suffering. Plus, we operate on a no win no fee basis, meaning that if we don’t win, you don’t have to pay any solicitors fees.

    How much compensation?

    How much compensation for a cosmetic procedure claim?

    The amount of compensation potentially awarded as a result of botched cosmetic procedures depends on the severity of the physical and emotional damage you have suffered. Medical examinations and reports will be taken into account, and if there is a need for reconstructive surgery then this will also affect the size of the compensation awarded.

    Apart from medical expenses, the loss of earnings during the period of being injured, along with travel expenses, can be claimed for. Compensation can also be claimed for psychological damage as a result of receiving a botched cosmetic procedure.
