Cosmetic negligence

Cosmetic Negligence

Doctors, plastic surgeons, beauty therapists and other practitioners have a duty to ensure your well-being and safety while you are in their care.

If a mistake was made during your cosmetic surgery treatment, you may be able to make a claim for compensation for your injuries and losses.

At Nicholson Jones Sutton our experienced cosmetic negligence lawyers will take the time to understand what you’re going through, helping you to get the answers and compensation that you deserve.

Our cosmetic negligence team can take on most types of cosmetic surgery and beauty therapy claims, including:

Cosmetic Negligence Liposuccion
  • Botox injections
  • Facelifts
  • Breast augmentation surgery
  • Breast reconstruction procedures after mastectomy surgery
  • Breast reduction surgery
  • Liposuction
  • Nasal surgery
  • Chemical peel procedures
  • Eyelid surgery
  • Tummy tuck surgery
  • Laser eye surgery
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Brow lifts
  • Ear surgery

Before performing cosmetic surgery, the doctor/therapist should discuss with you any known risks involved in the procedure. If there are alternative procedures available then these should be explained to you before your commit to the recommended therapy/surgery.

By its very nature cosmetic surgery is not something that has to be carried out on an emergency basis. You should therefore be allowed enough time to think it over and to weigh up the risks of the treatment before proceeding.

If things go wrong because of how the therapist has carried out your treatment, then you may be entitled to compensation.
