When Cosmetic Surgery Goes Wrong
Posted on 7th July 2022 at 16:17
Cosmetic surgery is on the rise. With the celebrity culture that exists and most peoples perception that looks are all important, it isn’t difficult to understand why this is the case.
In the past people may have kept “quiet” about their latest Botox hit whereas now it is shown off like the latest designer accessory.
The “de rigueur” surgical improvements include (but not limited to):
• breast surgery
• tummy tucks
• brow lifts
It is important however that right from the beginning the patient not only needs to know what is involved but also what complications can arise. Not just Consent but Informed Consent is key.
With a growth in this industry, more and more people are undergoing procedures with private clinics and hospitals but with the rise of these procedures there has also been a rise in adverse outcomes as well.
Making a claim for compensation as a result of botched cosmetic surgery is based upon the same principles as those involving a claim of Medical Negligence against an NHS Hospital or doctor. In both situations a duty of care exists between the surgeon and patient and an appropriate standard of treatment is expected both before, during, and after surgery. A patient will invariably trust their medical professional but sometimes this trust is misplaced.
Badly performed cosmetic surgery can leave a patient with horrific scars and injury and in some cases can lead to further complications which can be truly life changing.
