Cosmetic Surgery Lawyers: Cosmetic Treatment Negligence Claims
In recent years, cosmetic surgery has become increasingly popular, with Dermal fillers, Botox injections, Breast reduction/enlargement, Liposuction, Gastric bypass and Rhinoplasty amongst the most common. Whether you choose to undergo treatments for health or cosmetic purposes, you should expect to receive the highest level of care. Fortunately, in most cases, both during and after the procedure, you do receive that.
It is important to bear in mind that there is no requirement for cosmetic surgeons to hold any specialist experience of the intricate procedures which they perform. Unfortunately, the under-regulated nature of cosmetic surgery has meant that the standards presented by some private clinics have often fallen below reasonable standards.
When these mistakes do occur, it can leave patients facing terrible consequences. If an error is made because of negligence, lack of training or incompetence, it can leave the victim wanting answers and legally entitled to compensation.
In the unlikely case that something has gone wrong, our expert cosmetic surgery solicitors are here to help you get the compensation you deserve. Here at Grieves Solicitors, we have a dedicated team of cosmetic negligence lawyers who will help you find the answers.

Common Cosmetic Surgery Claims
The consequence of negligent cosmetic surgery can be anything from small scarring, burst breast implants, immobile or numb facial muscles to serious infections and anything which can leave one in a worse condition after the surgery than before.
Our specialists can help you make a cosmetic negligence compensation claim:
- If a defective product was used.
- If you did not receive enough information regarding the risks linked to your procedure.
- If your treatment was not performed to a suitable standard.
- If you did not get the correct aftercare or guidance after your procedure.
If you can establish that the treatment you received was negligent and that the negligence has resulted in you suffering physical or psychological pain, then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
What can I claim?
A successful claim of this type will involve demonstrating that the treatment you received was below the standard you might reasonably expect and that this negligence resulted in you suffering serious injury. Cases such as this are often complex which is why it is important that you seek the help of an experienced personal injury lawyer. As they will have the know-how and the necessary expertise to build a compelling case.
The compensation you win, which is legally yours is there to help you cover any costs which are a direct consequence of the negligence or malpractice, it can help with:
- Loss of earnings
- Further surgery costs
- Medical and care costs
- Rehabilitation treatment
- Transportation requirements
