Cosmetic Surgery Claims

We find it alarming that the UK’s multi-billion pound cosmetic surgery industry is not more tightly regulated. The lack of formal regulation encourages practitioners and clinics to put the pursuit of profit before the quality of medical care. It also allows the inexperienced, the insufficiently trained and sometimes the outright unscrupulous to flourish. It is therefore no surprise that the number of negligence claims arising from cosmetic procedures is a major problem in this country. And with cosmetic surgery becoming increasingly popular the risks posed to patients has never been greater.

The benefits of using specialist cosmetic surgery lawyers

Cosmetic surgery negligence is a highly complex area of law where it pays to choose lawyers who are specialists in their field.

We have an experienced team who have dealt with most types of cosmetic surgery claim over the years, including rhinoplastybreast implants and face-lifts;  settling cases against some of the country’s leading cosmetic surgeons and clinics in the process.  We also represented over 300 women in the British PIP breast implant group action and have taken the fight to France where we continue to pursue claims for hundreds of British women.

In addition to recovering compensation for your ‘’pain and suffering’’ we will also claim your financial losses, including the cost of any private revision surgery that might be necessary to put the problem right.
