Cosmetic Surgery Claims

It is 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. With the number of negligence claims arising from cosmetic procedures rising, the risks posed to cosmetic surgery patients has never been greater.

The benefits of using specialist cosmetic surgery negligence 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.  In one high-profile case we represented over 300 British women in the PIP breast implant group action, taking the fight to France for compensation and justice.

We are also experienced in dealing with claims arsing from negligent beauty treatments, including allergic reactions.

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.
