COSMETIC SURGERY Compensation Claims


Cosmetic Surgery Claims cover surgeries that people have undertaken to change something about their body or appearance. These types of claims are also called plastic surgery claims. Circumstances giving rise to cosmetic surgery compensation claims can often be difficult for individuals to deal with since they have been injured following elective surgery which is more often than not very expensive. As well as making mistakes during the procedure, problems can also occur in the post-operative management phase when the patient is hoping to recover.

Common cosmetic surgery claims include the following

  • Breast surgery claims (enlargement / reduction / augmentation)
  • Tummy tucks / gastric band fitting
  • Face lifts
  • Body sculpting
  • Brow lifts
  • laser treatment claims(hair removal / skin treatment)
  • Cosmetic dentistry

Problems occur because the treating clinicians have not used appropriate skill and care or has failed to realise that complications are developing.

Common post-operative complications include:

  • Nerve damage
  • Organ damage
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • The need for further surgery
