Many people who seek cosmetic surgery are happy with the outcome but there is an increase in less reputable surgeons either misleading patients with what they can expect from their surgery or even seriously harming them through neglect.
Surgeons and cosmetic surgery clinics have been known to use highly pressurised techniques and often special offers to pressurise patients to go through with cosmetic surgery.
At Hattons Solicitors we have a legal team of medical negligence solicitors who specialise in cosmetic surgery compensation claims. Cosmetic surgery compensation claims can often be sensitive subjects for the patients and we understand that confidentially and discretion is needed.

•nose reshaping (rhinoplasty)
•breast augmentation and reduction
•tummy tuck (abdominoplasty)

Although there are many skilled cosmetic surgeons, often a cosmetic surgery compensation claim happens when the surgeon is unqualified or because of complications that should have been prevented by the surgeon. The reason why cosmetic surgery compensation claims are so important is to ensure that surgeons improve their standards, while improving regulation of the cosmetic surgery industry.
Additionally in the case of implants or replacements the products can be faulty, which we can also help you to deal with.
Because of our legal teams experience we understand that patients can be affected physically, financially and even psychologically. It’s often difficult to come forward with a cosmetic surgery compensation claim because patients sometimes feel that because they opted into the surgery they should accept negligence. We can advise you of your legal rights, whether you can make a cosmetic surgery compensation claim, and then reassure you of what you can expect during your case.
We are happy to visit you in your home if you do not feel comfortable visiting us, as often it is easier to speak face to face so that we can understand your individual needs.
