The cosmetic surgery industry in the UK over the past decade years has seen significant growth. More and more people are turning to specialist cosmetic Surgeons to improve their appearance. Cosmetic surgery may be undertaken for many reasons, including to boost self-esteem and self-image and reverse the signs of ageing.
Generally, standards are excellent in the industry, but errors can and do occur, causing injury and emotional distress, and unfortunately, cosmetic surgery claims are on the increase. If a level of negligence can be demonstrated, then it may be that you are entitled to cosmetic surgery compensation.
Regardless of the motivations for cosmetic surgery, no one should take the decision to ‘go under the knife’ lightly, as with all surgical procedures, there are risks. It is important to select a Surgeon who has a good reputation and has the skills and experience to carry out the procedure you are seeking.
All Surgeons in this field should be highly trained and skilled in the field of cosmetic surgery. However, although Surgeons typically specialise in specific parts of the body, it is now increasingly common for a cosmetic Surgeon to carry out breast enlargement surgery one-day, and a Rhinoplasty procedure (Nose reconstruction) the next.
This increased pressure on Surgeons to carry out a wider range of cosmetic options has contributed to more errors being made.

We are seeing a rise in the number hairdressers, beauty therapists and Dentists, performing cosmetic procedures. Although they are generally trained to do the procedures, they are not as skilled as a Surgeon. This is leading to a further increase in possible cosmetic surgery errors.
