"I thought cosmetic surgery would make it better – but the surgery turned out to be disastrous."
Cosmetic and plastic surgery claims are, sadly, on the increase – not only because of the popularity of aesthetic cosmetic surgery, but also because advances in plastic surgery techniques mean patients with disfigurements can be helped more by cosmetic and plastic surgeons.
Reputable cosmetic and plastic surgeons usually practice in the NHS and privately – and many reputable cosmetic surgeons belong to professional organisations like the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), all members of which belong to the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons maintained by the General Medical Council.
Negligent or incompetent cosmetic or plastic surgery can not only have devastating aesthetic outcomes – leaving patients distressed and disfigured – but can also lead to medical problems such as pain, scarring, haematoma (blood clots), open wounds, ulceration and infection and even stroke or heart attack.
In some cases, patients seriously injured during cosmetic procedures or plastic surgery may sustain such severe wounds or infection that permanent life changing disability – or even death – is the tragic result.
