Have you suffered from Cosmetic Surgery?

If you have suffered injury or illness as a result of medical negligence during cosmetic surgery, compensation could be awarded to you with the support of the right solicitor. It can be distressing to suffer and experience unwanted changes to your life, sometimes just for the short-term, but in some cases the negative impact can be long-lasting. Cosmetic surgery is often undertaken as a way to boost the confidence of the patient, sometimes after an accident or injury of some sort or just as a personal choice.

To suffer injury or illness is never anticipated. You could be entitled to seek compensation for cosmetic surgery negligence you sustained. The quality of cosmetic surgeons in the UK is to a high standard, but at times standards can drop, mistakes are made, and in worst cases, cosmetic surgery negligence takes place. This can cause long-term injuries and scarring that harm the patient physically and psychologically, for years to come in some cases.

Some of the most common compensation amounts related to cosmetic surgery claims include:

Claim Area Type of Injury Expected Compensation
Facial Disfigurement Very severe facial scarring, serious cosmetic
effect and severe psychological impact
£26,120 to £85,340
Significant scarring, where physical/psychological
effects reduced by plastic surgery
£7,990 to £26,380
Less significant scarring, scars can be camouflaged
to not markedly affect appearance
£3,460 to £12,050
Body Scarring Noticeable laceration scars, or single disfiguring
scar to leg, arm, hand, back or chest
£6,870 to £19,930
Single noticeable scar, or several superficial
scars to leg(s), arm(s) or hand(s)
£2,080 to £6,870
Damage to Hair Serious hair damage, effects including dermatitis,
eczema; chances of regrowth poor
£6,440 to £9,660
Less serious hair damage, with bald patches but
regrowth over time
£3,460 to £6,440

At Hampson Hughes, we have great experience of the cosmetic surgery claims process, and you can rest assured that you will find no better cosmetic surgery solicitors to take on your case. We will talk through your experiences and make note of all the information and specific detail that could make a difference to your cosmetic surgery compensation claims. We aim to maximise compensation awards for our clients, helping them gain compensation that covers general distress and injury, loss of earnings (both current and future), the cost of medical expenses, rehabilitation and corrective surgery, as well as ensuring that anything else you require to make your life more comfortable at home or to undertake everyday tasks is available to you.

For more details on making your cosmetic surgery claim, take a look at the dropdown sections below;

  • Which Issues Qualify for Cosmetic Surgery Claims?

    We have worked with a wide range of people over the years, claiming maximum cosmetic surgery compensation, including where the surgeon or consultant did not obtain consent from the patient for aspects of the cosmetic surgery procedure; or the patient did not receive enough information about the procedural risks before making a decision on the surgery. We have helped claim compensation for cosmetic surgery negligence relating to:

    • Facelifts
    • Brow Lifts
    • Cosmetic Dentistry
    • Gastric Band Surgery
    • Rhinoplasty (Nose Reshaping)
    • Breast enlargement or reduction
    • Defective or Substandard Products Used during Surgery
    • Damage to Nerves, Organs and Arteries during Surgical Complications

    When any surgical procedure such as these goes wrong, it can cause significant pain, discomfort and distress. For example, with respect to breast augmentation, there may be substandard pre-operative tissue viability assessment, this can result in too much/not enough tissue being removed during surgery. The patient’s appearance may then be significantly different to what was promised. Further surgery may then be required to rectify the problem. A patient can suffer both physically and psychologically as a result of cosmetic surgery negligence, and we are here to help you seek maximum compensation. You can make cosmetic surgery claims that will cover:

    • General Damages
    • The Cost of Any Required Post-op Care
    • Loss of Earnings
    • Travel Expenses For All Medical Trips, Including Rehabilitation
    • Medical Expenses Including Corrective Surgery

    In terms of the amount of cosmetic surgery compensation to award, a range of factors will be taken into consideration. The compensation award will be influenced directly by the severity of the injuries sustained during the cosmetic surgery negligence. There are different amounts of general compensation awarded for various types of cosmetic surgery issues. Please contact our experienced and friendly team to discuss your own personal circumstances and to obtain more information regarding the likely value of your claim.

  • How much do Cosmetic Surgery Compensation Claims cost?

    The cost of making a cosmetic surgery compensation claim might seem prohibitive and a stumbling block at first, but we are here to make sure you have all the help you need. Give our team a call and we can talk through all available funding options for you including any relevant insurance policies that will cover the cost of a legal claim.

    In the majority of cases, we can act for you on a ‘No Win, No Fee’ basis in the form of a CFA (Conditional Fee Agreement). A CFA ensures that, should your claim for cosmetic surgery compensation be unsuccessful, you will not pay a penny towards the associated costs.

  • What is the time limit on Cosmetic Surgery claims?

    Any claim for cosmetic surgery compensation will fall under the same rules as all other claims for medical negligence or personal injury claims. The time limit is three years, with the three-year period beginning on the exact date of the cosmetic surgery negligence, or three years from the date where you became aware that your injuries or illness were a direct result of the cosmetic surgery you had received.
  • Where Can I Find Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors?

    The team at Hampson Hughes has great experience and knowledge about cosmetic surgery negligence and the processes behind successful cosmetic surgery compensation claims. Injuries sustained due to mistakes or negligence during cosmetic surgery can be really distressing and difficult to overcome.

    We take an approach where we understand what you are going through and wish to seek the maximum amount of cosmetic surgery compensation to aid your recovery, have a successful rehabilitation phase and then move on with your life. If you would like to book a consultation with a friendly member of our team, please feel free to contact us today. You can do so by either emailing or by calling .

Fantastic service, the attention to all the details was super impressive. They kept me updated throughout the whole process and got my case solved really quickly. I can't recommend them highly enough!

Stephen McNorton

Great service from start to finish. My solicitor was always happy to explain what was happening and in the end, he got me more compensation than what the insurance company were going to offer me. Glad I used them to look after my claim and I've just had my cheque earlier than expected today!!

Pete Smith
