Using dermal fillers to improve facial lines, straighten the look of a nose, get fuller lips or cheeks is a very common and only minimal inversive procedure. They can be injected permanently or temporary, lasting between 3-18 months. The procedure should normally be quick and not involve a lot of pain. However, surprisingly often something can go wrong with a dermal filler and can cause temporary or permanent pain requiring further cosmetic surgery to be corrected. As this can be an emotional and financial burden, claiming compensation with the help of an experienced solicitor can be an option.
Our team of trained medical negligence solicitors can help today.
If the surgeon or beautician makes mistakes when inserting a dermal filler, it can constitute negligent treatment which is the basis for a compensation claim. There are various common issues which can occur with dermal fillers:
These undesired results from dermal fillers, will often need further medical treatment or surgery. However, there are also some common side effects that should normally only occur within one or two days after the treatment. These include swelling, bruising, redness and tenderness or the skin and slight bleeding. If the symptoms do not go away after a short period, medical advice should be sought. In this case a compensation claim might be possible on this basis.
A Firm With A Winning Record
So long as the beautician, surgeon or nurse has the required qualification to administer dermal fillers, it does not matter what position they have. However, if an unqualified person undertakes the procedure, a claim will depend on whether the patient knew they were unqualified or not. In the case of deliberately letting someone unqualified inject the dermal fillers, this might hinder a successful claim. It is however important in these kinds of cases to seek clarification by speaking to an expert solicitor.
Just like in any cosmetic negligence case, it is advisable to gather all available information about the treatment and where it was administered. Additionally, taking photographs can provide evidence of what kind of unwanted result has occurred and how severe it was. It is also important to see a doctor who can determine what went wrong and how the long-term effects of the negligent treatment will be. Lastly, proof of all expenses that occurred in relation to the treatment should be collected.
