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.

What are the risks of cosmetic surgery?

Like any medical procedure, cosmetic surgery has many risks which can impact on your physical appearance and overall health, and your practitioner should make you aware of these potential complications before surgery.

Depending on the type of procedure, it could 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 likely that your surgeon didn’t conduct the procedure with enough due care and diligence, or else failed to provide the appropriate aftercare needed to guarantee a successful recovery.
