Cosmetic Surgery & Beauty Compensation Claims
Have you been the victim of cosmetic and beauty negligence? If you have, then we may be able to help you with a claim for compensation.
The UK cosmetic and beauty industry is at an all time high with 38,771 women admitting to having some sort of beauty or cosmetic procedure. These procedures don’t always go as planned and the results can sometimes have quite the opposite effect. Some of the major complications of cosmetic surgery are infection, excessive bleeding, blood clots or an undesirable result.
If you have been a victim of someone else’s professional negligence then we may be able to help you with a claim for compensation.
Cosmetic surgery is now a massive business, with an estimated £300 million being spent annually in the cosmetic surgery business. Although the standard of cosmetic surgery in the UK is good, it is not strictly regulated as the other departments of surgery are, resulting in the number of cosmetic surgery negligence incidents increasing.

A cosmetic surgeon making a mistake or completing your surgery negligently can result in you obtaining scars, asymmetrical features or disfiguration. This can not only create a negative impact on the victim’s physical appearance, but can also lower their self esteem and affect their self confidence. This is ironic and devastating for the patient as in most cases, the patient went through cosmetic surgery as an attempt to improve their appearance and self esteem, only to be worse off as an end result.
Negative results of cosmetic surgery can also be very expensive to fix, and therefore some sufferers are left with the physical and mental scars of the surgery for a long time, if not for ever.
The main types of cosmetic surgery claims include:
- Breast enlargements
- Breast reductions
- Tummy tuck
- Eyelid surgery
- Laser hair removal
- Dermal fillers
- Rhinoplasty (nose job)
Making a claim for compensation could help fund the costs of any surgery needed to fix your situation, as well as compensating for any pain and suffering, mental and physical scars, and any inconvenience your negligent cosmetic surgery has caused.
