People undergo plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery every day and claims often arise due to surgeons performing operations with a lack of proper experience or due to complications that should not have arisen.
Negligently performed plastic surgery has a huge impact on the patient, physically and psychologically. Often they find it difficult to come forward and even discuss a claim. Our medical injury team have a wealth of experience in advising both men and women in cosmetic surgery negligence claims and take a highly sensitive approach to such cases, ensuring that clients feel comfortable and confident when providing information to us and pursuing their claims.

- Abdominoplasty (tummy tuck);
- Breast augmentation (increasing breast size);

- Mastopexy (breast lift);
- Blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery);
- Liposuction (having fatty tissue removed from areas of the body);
- Rhinoplasty (nose reshaping); and
- Rhytidectomy (face lift).
