Medical Negligence Claims

Cosmetic Surgery Claims

The help you deserve

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 compensation they deserve when the 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.

Contact our expert team today to arrange a free initial consultation at any of our offices, in Newcastle, Cramlington, Ashington and Sunderland, or alternatively at your home, to discuss your particular requirements.

Cosmetic surgery procedures

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 and 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.

Time Limits

As with all claims for personal injury 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.
