Rhinoplasty is a type of cosmetic surgery performed on the nose. It is a very common procedure made available in both private and NHS practices.
Rhinoplasty is normally known as a ‘nose job’ and it is a popular choice for people who are unhappy with aesthetic nasal imperfections.

You may be surprised to learn that if you are not happy with your rhinoplasty operation, you may not have received negligent care. If the treatment you received was indeed negligent, this will need to be confirmed by a trusted independent medical authority not concerned with the surgery responsible for your procedure.
Some of the major problems encountered following rhinoplasty surgery are below:
Like other types of medical negligence compensation claims, it is possible to claim for financial losses. This includes loss of earnings if you have not been able to return to work or fees paid for further corrective surgery to sort out the mistake. You might also be able to recover any other medical expenses you have had to pay for.
