To undergo cosmetic surgery is not an easy decision it gets even more difficult when something in the procedure goes wrong. The effects can not only be physical injuries but also emotional suffering from the consequences. If the unwanted results were induced by medical negligence or substandard treatment, an experienced solicitor could help with a compensation claim.
Just like any kind of surgery, it bears certain risks that the patient has to be made aware of before undergoing a procedure. The problem with cosmetic surgery is though that if something goes wrong it can materially affect the appearance which is what the patient had been wanting to improve. It can therefore be very upsetting.

Cosmetic surgery that was undertaken outside of the UK is no exception from that rule so a claim for compensation might still be an option.
