People undergo cosmetic procedures for many different reasons, and have access to a huge range of treatments and products. As with all surgery, many of these procedures carry risks, and some areas of the industry are not as strictly regulated as other clinical areas.
The damage from failed treatment may be more than physical – the effect on a person's self-image and self-worth can be significant, making this a very personal kind of injury. Where the damage was caused by failings of clinical professionals, we may be able to assist in securing compensation.

Cosmetic Surgery Claims
It is important that cosmetic surgery is performed properly, and that the patient fully understands and agrees to the procedure. Some examples of failures include:
- Mistakes during surgery or substandard results
- Failure to explain the extent of the surgery and the risks involved
- Performing a procedure which is unsuitable for a particular patient
- Providing poor quality follow-up care
- Use of faulty medical devices such as breast implants
Because of the commercial nature of the cosmetic surgery market, there are dangers of clinics acting irresponsibly; they may allow the lure of profit to compromise patient safety, for example, by offering procedures with which they do not have sufficient experience.
You may have specific needs following a failed procedure, including revision surgery, rehabilitation therapy or counselling. We can assist in claiming these costs from your surgeon, as well as compensation for your pain and suffering and other costs associated with the injury.
