More and more people are having cosmetic surgery, whether they simply seek to improve their self-confidence through improvements to their face and body, or need cosmetic surgery due to health problems. Many patients are thrilled with the results; however a recent increase in disreputable surgeons who mislead or neglect their patients has resulted in a dramatic increase in cosmetic surgery negligence claims over the last 10 years.
Many cases have been reported of surgeons and cosmetic surgery clinics using special offers to unfairly pressurise patients to go through with surgical procedures, often without fully explaining the risks of the operations. At Bonallack and Bishop, our medical negligence solicitors specialise in cosmetic surgery compensation claims and we understand the confidentiality and discretion needed in what is often a sensitive area for our clients.
