With cosmetic surgery becoming so popular, the procedure is much safer than it used to be. However, because the surgery is complicated, there are still risks involved. Unfortunately, sometimes surgery and treatments may result in bad side effects such as infections, nerve damage or unpleasant scarring. If you’ve had cosmetic surgery which has had an upsetting outcome, you may be entitled to compensation.
As a patient, you are entitled to a duty of care during the preparation, procedure and after-care of your surgery. If you feel you have not been taken care of during the course of your surgery, you may be able to receive compensation. To do so, it will have to be proven that you have experienced negligence or malpractice.
