Are you a victim of botched cosmetic surgery? Cosmetic surgery compensation claims have increased dramatically over the last few years as more cosmetic surgery procedures are being carried out in the UK than ever before. Some of the most popular ones being dermal fillers which is a procedure that is carried out by non-medical staff. There has been a rise in less reputable nurses or surgeons who either mislead patients or promise more than what they can deliver in terms of results.
Lack of regulation for non-invasive cosmetic procedures
There is also an absence of regulation in the UK regarding non-invasive procedures such as laser hair removal or dermal fillers. These can be done by people with little training and familiarity. When a patient is physically or psychologically injured following cosmetic surgery or feels they were not fully informed of the likely risks then there may be a claim for compensation.
