What is Cosmetic Negligence?
Cosmetic Surgery Negligence occurs when you receive substandard care from any of the healthcare professionals involved in your treatment, be it during a surgical or a non-surgical procedure. This negligence can occur before, during or after a cosmetic procedure and can include everything from mistakes made during the procedure to being misled or uninformed about the potential complications involved, or even the failure to provide adequate aftercare and post-procedure advice. Any of these shortfalls in care can result in you suffering long-term complications that affect your physical appearance and/or cause you physical and even psychological pain.
With the most popular cosmetics procedures now being non-surgical ones like Botox, derma filler, and laser treatments, we are seeing more issues arise due to unqualified and inadequately-regulated therapists carrying them out. If you have been affected by work carried out by one of these therapists, we might be able to help.
If you're suffering, we can help
All doctors and medical professionals have a duty of care, regardless of your reasons for undergoing a procedure. Even the most commonly performed surgeries and procedures carry some risks, but these should never be due to negligence or neglect of care by a medical professional or therapist. Our expert team is here to help get you the support you need. Get in touch with us today to find out for free if you can make a No Win, No Fee claim. We’ll support you through every step of the process to get you the compensation you deserve. You have nothing to lose but potentially everything to gain.
Your case with us will be on a No Win, No Fee basis. Simply put, if you don’t win, you don’t pay.
You won’t have to pay any upfront costs for starting your claim, and a fee will be deducted if your case is successful. If your case is successful, your percentage fee will be taken out of your final compensation award, which is capped at a maximum amount by law.

As with most negligence cases, you have three years from the date of the surgery or the ‘date of knowledge’ that something might not be right to start your claim.
If you have experienced complications as a result of mistakes made during the treatment you have received, whether in an NHS or a private setting, you may be able to claim for Cosmetic Surgery Negligence. To be able to proceed with a Cosmetic Surgery Negligence case, you need to be able to prove:
Breach of duty – proving that the medical professional failed to meet the legal standard of duty of care to you.
Causation – proving that the treatment you received was the cause of your injury (or caused your condition to get worse).
Damages or losses – giving clear evidence of the harm you have suffered as a result, and any financial losses or expenses you have incurred.
There are some instances in which the surgery or procedure carried out may not have given you your desired results, or where you suffered complications that were unavoidable or among the risks associated with the procedure that were explained to you. In these instances, there could be no one to blame and a claim for compensation is unlikely to be successful.
As with most medical procedures, there are many risks and complications associated with cosmetic procedures and surgery. By law, these risks and potential complications should all be explained to you by the treating professional prior to the procedure taking place. If you still believe you have been incorrectly treated, have been provided with inadequate care, or the procedure has been conducted incorrectly and left you with injuries, pain or scarring, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
Contact us today so we can assess your case details and start the ball rolling to get you the compensation you deserve.
Each case will be investigated individually, and the amount of compensation received will vary from case to case. However, among the factors considered that will contribute towards determining a final settlement are:
- General damages – pain, suffering and loss of amenity.
- Special damages – any financial expenses and losses you may have incurred as a result of the incident.
- The extent of your injuries (physical and psychological) and how they have affected your daily life.
- Any further corrective surgery or medical expenses you may need.
When a surgery has gone wrong, sometimes there is no other option than to undergo further surgery to correct the mistakes. Corrective surgery can, of course, be costly. These costs will be taken into account when your final compensation settlement is being considered, helping alleviate some of the worry.
If you have suffered from any of the following examples of negligence, you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation:
- An error was made during your surgery/procedure
- Inadequate care was provided by medical professionals, which resulted in them causing you injuries or harm.
- You weren’t given adequate aftercare and support.
- – Faulty or damaged equipment was used (such as implants, Botox, fillers).
- – You weren’t fully informed about the procedure or the risks associated with it prior to it being carried out
