Many people in the UK undergo cosmetic surgery procedures each year, usually to improve their appearance or to correct perceived imperfections. This could be anything from a crooked nose, excess fat or bits of their body they wish to be bigger or smaller. Of course, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and a feature that you find adorable might seem horrible to the person blessed (or cursed) with it.
Over the last 10 years or so cosmetic procedures have increased in popularity, with people wanting to look like their favourite celebrities, or like the “ideal” men and women they see in advertisements every day. New procedures such as botox have made cosmetic procedures more accessible to the masses, with many available during your lunch hour for a relatively low cost, with few side effects. People who wouldn’t otherwise have considered surgery are now opting for these simpler treatments which give an instant, but temporary effect.
Unfortunately, any medical procedure has risks and can go wrong. When this happens it can have devastating consequences for the person affected. They may not be able to go to work, and might feel terrible facing their friends and family, especially if their use of cosmetic surgery was a private matter. Many people feel that they deserve any bad consequences, because they chose to have the procedure carried out and even paid for it themselves.
The reality is, anyone who suffers unnecessarily during or following a cosmetic procedure may have the right to claim compensation, for loss of earnings or even the cost of the procedure itself. The best course of action is to get in touch with a cosmetic surgery specialist solicitor
to see if you can make a claim. Your details will be treated in the strictest confidence by a sympathetic solicitor who has heard stories just like yours and will be able to help.
