Risks of cosmetic surgery

Risks of cosmetic surgery

Like any medical procedure, cosmetic surgery has many risks which can impact on your physical appearance and overall health.

Your practitioner should make you aware of these potential complications before surgery.

Depending on the type of procedure, it could also take months for you to recover fully, and the exact rehabilitation period should be outlined by your doctor.

During this period you should receive a high standard of aftercare and support, helping you to make a full recovery whilst limiting the risk of further complications like infections and scarring.

In cases where complications arise and issues don’t heal naturally over time, you could be left with permanent health problems or unattractive results.

If this is the case, it’s possible your surgeon didn’t conduct the procedure with enough due care and diligence, or failed to provide the appropriate aftercare needed to aid a successful recovery.

Since Elizabeth Maliakal took over my case for medical negligence. I am pleased to say her service was outstanding. Her communication was excellent. She was always up to date and made sure to keep in touch with me regularly. Elizabeth made sure I understood what was happening and always answered my questions in depth. Coming from a foreign background, I struggle to articulate my thoughts and feelings because of the language barrier, but Elizabeth worked her way around this. I am grateful for all her hard work. Thank you to Elizabeth Maliakal and Hudgell Solicitors.

Darrel Fuentebaja
Thank you to Hudgell Solicitors particularly Sarah Moore who was assigned to my case. I was kept well informed throughout the whole process via email and phone, and always received a prompt reply to any questions that I had. It took a long time for my case to come to close for various reasons but never during this time did I feel rushed or pressured into making a decision. Sarah was very empathetic and supported me throughout with her excellent level of knowledge and professionalism. Thank you again.

Can I claim cosmetic surgery compensation for non-surgical treatments?

Many of the most popular forms of cosmetic treatments are non-surgical, making it possible to change your appearance without a full surgical procedure.

From Botox injections and chemical peels to laser treatments, microdermabrasion and dermal fillers; there are a growing number of readily available non-surgical procedures that can have a dramatic impact on your physical appearance, and these continue to prove very popular.

Sadly, a lack of concrete regulation means that mistakes are much more common in non-surgical treatments, placing you at a greater risk of pain, injury or unsatisfactory results. Whether a procedure is carried out by an inexperienced consultant, faulty or unsterile equipment is used, or medical records aren’t reviewed prior to treatment; the complications of non-surgical treatment can be severe — so you’re entitled to make a claim if fault falls with the practitioner.

To find out if you’re eligible to claim compensation for non-surgical cosmetic treatment, get in touch today for a free consultation.

Was I Properly Advised On My Treatment Options?

Doctors and surgeons are not allowed to carry out any medical treatment unless the patient – or their next of kin – has been fully informed of any potential risks and any alternative treatment options available.

Patients should be fully involved in decisions relating to their medical treatment and be able to make an informed choice about the treatment they receive.

Our team at Hudgell Solicitors has represented many clients who have undergone treatments or been given medication, unaware of potential future complications or issues. Common examples include:

  • Failing to inform patients of the potential risks of operations / treatments
  • Failing to warn patients of potential side effects of treatments / medications
  • Failing to inform patient of alternative treatment options
  • Failing to warn of patients of potential complications during /following surgery
  • Failing to inform patients that further surgery may still be required
  • Failing to provide accurate information on the expertise of surgeons
  • Failing to offer options other than surgery
  • Failing to consult fully with mothers / parents on birth delivery plans / options

Wrongful Births

The term wrongful birth is used when babies are born with injuries or disabilities which medical professionals should have detected during pregnancy. A failure to inform mothers/parents denies them the opportunity to take a very difficult decision as to whether to continue with the pregnancy.
