AbdominoplastyHave you suffered after a botched Abdominoplasty?
Abdominoplasty is an operation to tighten and flatten your stomach by removing excess fat and skin and tightening the abdominal muscles. We understand that this procedure carries some risks, however, there are many occasions that patients suffer unnecessarily from infections or from poor after care. If you’re suffering after receiving substandard care or as a result of a mistake by your surgeon, then you may have a claim for compensation. Call free, 0800 122 3130 or start a claim online.
People choose to elect for a Abdominoplasty for various different reasons. We tend to have high expectations of the final results we’d get, especially given the way that many surgeons advertise themselves. When clients go to these clinics, they often seem like 5-star spas rather than a hospital giving the impression that they’d receive quality care from their cosmetic surgeon or specialist. Occasionally clients will pay extra to stay and recover in the clinics or perhaps in nearby hotels increasing the cost of their care and adding to the financial loss of their surgery or negligent care.
Sadly things may not always go how you expected they would and should you find yourself in this position then Mercury Legal Online are here to help you. Fill in our call back form and one of our expert lawyers will be able to contact you and support you with a claim for compensation. As many botched procedures require corrective surgery, this compensation will help with the cost of putting it right.
What happens after the procedure?
You will need to rest for a few days after the operation has taken place so that the effects of the procedure can wear off. However, most surgeons do encourage patients to begin moving around again as soon as possible – just take it easy! There may be some scarring after abdominoplasty – this is normally above the bikini line and around the belly button. If you have had a mini abdominoplasty, this will eliminate the scarring around the belly button. If you have had an extended abdominoplasty, the scar above the bikini line will extend right around the back.
After two weeks you should be able to return to work again, however this does depend on the extent of your surgery and you should also take into account any pre-existing health issues that you have.
How much does Abdominoplasty cost?
Abdominoplasty will cost can cost up to £6,000, which doesn’t include the cost of accommodation and recovery time. This procedure is not for the overweight or obese, but for someone who has lost weight, maybe post-childbirth or through dieting, and has a lot of excess skin, with just a small amount of fat.
