Cosmetic negligence claims – everything you need to know

Start your claim

Cosmetic procedures are becoming more popular and affordable over time. With increased pressures from society and social media, women and men resort to cosmetic surgery to feel more confident in the everyday world. Even though all medical professionals undergo years of training and education, and the chances of a mistake are small, they can still happen and have detrimental impacts on everyday life. If you have experienced negligence during your medical procedure, contact one of our experienced solicitors at Belmont Solicitors.

Most common types of cosmetic procedures 

Nowadays, there are hundreds of procedures available to improve people’s appearance. However, the most common cosmetic procedures in the UK include: 

  • Botox 
  • Liposuction 
  • Rhinoplasty 
  • Breast augmentation
  • Dental Cosmetic Surgery, including teeth whitening or veneer procedures. 
  • Fat removal claims 

There are many different types of procedures, and whatever type of area of your body you want to focus on, you will likely find a procedure for it. There has been a surge of clients booking online consultations over lockdown, despite official beauty clinics only now opening up due to Covid; due to the nature of supply and demand, more and more beauticians underwent training to perform minor non-invasive cosmetic procedures. These procedures, if performed incorrectly can lead to some detrimental outcomes. Since March 2020, there has been a 70% growth in demand for online consultations, with a 64% general growth in consultations. 

Common types of cosmetic negligence 

There are many ways in which cosmetic procedures can be carried out negligently. By visiting any type of medical professional, we put our trust into their experience to get the outcome we want.

    • My accident happened right before covid, so there were loads of delays and even a hand over in solicitors. With all the interferences, Belmont never let me down. They stayed in touch and stayed very honest throughout the whole thing.

    • The team at Belmont has been great. They went through the information with me as often as I needed to understand all the legal bits and feel comfortable proceeding. I was given an update as soon as it was available, which meant I didn’t have to constantly call - which in my experience is not always the case with solicitors. Overall very happy with the service received.

    • Good service. Kept me informed about my personal injury claim - which took about a year to settle, which was due to the other party in the accident's insurer going into liquidation, but they kept at it and eventually succeded in getting the payment. Would definately recommend.
