Cosmetic Surgery Claims

Cosmetic Surgery Claims Solicitors 

Cosmetic surgery has the potential to change people’s lives for the better by making them happier and more comfortable with their appearance. But when surgical procedures go wrong, they can have devastating consequences for those involved.

At Browell Smith & Co Solicitors, we have helped and guided many clients from across the North East through the process to obtain the compensation they deserve when their cosmetic surgery, for which they will often have paid a significant sum, has fallen significantly below the required standards or the aftercare has proved wholly inadequate. Often the patient is left to fend for themselves and needs help and assistance to obtain compensation to put their life back on track.

The private cosmetic surgery industry has expanded rapidly but is an industry that is poorly regulated and many procedures and practices fall outside what little regulation there is. Often the clinics who have arranged the treatment are reluctant to accept that procedures have gone wrong, leaving patients to find their own remedial treatment for what are often devastating injuries sustained through no fault of their own.

The cosmetic surgery team at Browell Smith & Co specialises in assisting clients when cosmetic surgery has been negligently performed.

What types of cosmetic surgery can I make a medical negligence claim?

Some of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures that have resulted in successful claims include: 

  • Breast augmentation
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Face/neck lift
  • Breast reduction
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Abdominoplasty
  • Liposuction
  • Fat transfer
  • Brow lifts

If you believe that you have received poor surgical treatment do not hesitate to contact Browell Smith & Co. Our team is always happy to explain what can be done and how we can help resolve your case.

Are there any time limits to making a cosmetic surgery claim? 

As with all claims for medical negligence compensation, there are time limits within which a claim must be lodged with the court. For accident claims, court proceedings must be started within three years from the date of your accident.

In the event that court proceedings are not started within three years from the relevant date, the negligent party may be able to escape paying compensation on the basis that your claim is out of time.
