Cosmetic Surgery And Weight Loss Surgery

In recent years, cosmetic treatments by non-medically qualified staff at High Street clinics rather than Plastic Surgery carried out at Private Hospitals under doctors have become more popular. The most popular cosmetic procedures, including both surgical and non-surgical procedures, in the UK are:-

  • Breast Enlargement & Augmentation.
  • Breast Reduction.
  • Liposuction Surgery.
  • Vaser Liposuction.
  • Tummy Tuck.
  • Non-Surgical and Surgical Face Lifts.
  • Nose Augmentation/ Rhinoplasty.

The cosmetic interventions industry in the UK is big business. Worth £2.3 billion in 2010 and over £3.6 billion last year, it has expanded at such a rate that existing regulatory frameworks are now glaringly inadequate. The chances of a patient encountering poor quality products, poor quality treatment, and poor quality aftercare is surprisingly high – and for non-surgical procedures, there is no guarantee of redress, sadly.

However, most reputable clinics will have a complaints procedure for you to follow and we could always assist you if there is evidence of a failure to perform the contractual terms by the medic or a negligently carried out procedure. Please note that it is not sufficient to say that you are not happy with your outcome, it must be that it represents a personal injury because it has gone wrong or will need remedial treatment to rectify. In terms of plastic surgery operations, you are able to bring a medical negligence claim against the performing doctor just as you would do against the NHS for the actions of a doctor working in a public Hospital.

At Thomson & Bancks, our medical negligence specialists will deal sensitively and efficiently with your claim for compensation or that brought on behalf of a loved one’s Estate. The civil law attempts to place people back in the same place as they would have been had they not been injured by a medical mistake or left untreated so they have not fully recovered as they should have done.

Where that is not possible, an increasing amount of damages are payable for where the consequences have been more serious for you. Also, financial losses caused by the injury or non-recovery of your condition are claimable, for instance, if you are not able to return to work or require extra services because of a resulting disability which would have been avoided had there been no negligence.

If you or your family have been affected by medical negligence, please call our specialist Solicitor, Lucy Sherry, on 01242 235250 to find out if you may have a claim. We will offer you a first free interview to learn about the next steps and our ‘No Win, No Fee’ agreements for funding your legal claim.
