The number of people undergoing non-invasive procedures has risen dramatically over the last 10 years.
Worryingly, non-invasive procedures carried out within the UK (such as botox, dermal fillers, laser hair removal and chemical peel’s) are not heavily regulated and can be performed by almost anybody, even someone with no medical training whatsoever.
Most non-invasive surgery is often carried out outside the NHS or by beauty therapists and whilst most people are happy with the results of their chosen treatment, increasing numbers of people are being left devastated after treatments go wrong.
If performed incorrectly, the complications of non-invasive procedures can just as serious as complications arising from invasive surgical procedures. These procedures can result in a range of complications such as scarring, infection and even blindness.
If a non-invasive treatment goes wrong, you may be left not only with a large bill to pay but may also be left in tremendous pain and require corrective surgery. We recognise that the cost to patients of negligent treatment is not just physical and financial but also psychological.
Our team can help you obtain compensation for a procedure that has gone wrong due to the negligence of the treatment provider. We must firstly show that the treatment provided to you fell below the standard of a reasonably competent professional and secondly establish that it was the treatment that caused the damage, which would not have otherwise occurred.
As well as recovering compensation for the pain and suffering that you have experienced our cosmetic surgery solicitors will also pursue a claim for your financial losses, including the cost of any private corrective procedures that may have been necessary to rectify the problem.
