Compensation for Cosmetic SurgeryHave you suffered after a botched cosmetic procedure?
Cosmetic Surgery Compensation
We generally have high expectations of private cosmetic surgeries, particularly given the costs involved in cosmetic procedures and the way that many clinics market themselves. Many of our clients pay thousands of pounds to cosmetic surgeons to correct birth defects, to remove excess skin after weight loss or to have reconstructive surgery after an accident or cancer. However, what happens if you are left horrifically scarred or left needing more care following an infection?
We understand that this is a distressing time and that your surgery may not only have left you with physical scars, but emotion ones too. This is why our solicitors provide a free and confidential support line for victims of cosmetic negligence. If you, or someone you know is a victim of ‘botched cosmetic surgery‘ then call our advice line free, 0800 122 3130 or request a free call back when its convenient for you.
How are they negligent?
Unfortunately many people suffer from complications as a result of a surgical procedure. Whilst there are many reasons why complications may arise, they can often be avoided if a reasonable standard of care is provided. Complications include developing infections following surgery, nerve damage following an operation or poor surgical after-care. If you feel that the hospital or clinic where your surgery took place did not provide you with a reasonable standard of care, or your surgeon did not carry out their duty of care, speak to our negligence team. We will be able to tell you whether you have a claim for compensation.
We have a highly professional, determined and experienced team who deal with every aspect of cosmetic surgery negligence. This includes:
Cosmetic or plastic surgeons have a duty of care with regards to your overall health and expectations and it is important that you provide your surgeon with thorough information on your health before undergoing any cosmetic plastic surgery treatment. If you are not asked, or are unable to provide this information, problems may occur. If you don’t feel comfortable with your surgery after the operation has taken place, or the treatment was not as you expected it would be, you need to be able to ask questions and, in some cases, seek further care.
If you need help, speak to one of our cosmetic surgery experts. You can request a free call back and one of our team will call you back to speak to you about how you can make a claim for compensation. We can assist you in dealing with complaints, seeking answers or making a claim on your behalf. We have a professional team working on many types of cosmetic surgery cases that have fallen beneath the standards you would expect.

Whatever your concern, we’ll work with you and guide you through the entire legal process.
