“How could my cosmetic surgery go so wrong, when I was told it was a routine operation?”
Cosmetic surgery procedures are expensive – and no one expects the results of cosmetic procedures to make them look and feel worse than before the operation.
But horror stories about cut-price cosmetic surgery and bogus or incompetent cosmetic surgeons make the headlines all too frequently.
Reputable cosmetic surgeons will usually belong to an organisation like the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPs).
Members of BAAPS belong to the Specialist Register of Plastic Surgeons maintained by the General Medical Council.
But as cosmetic surgery becomes increasingly popular and cheaper, more men and women are finding themselves left devastated and disfigured after botched cosmetic surgery operations requiring further corrective surgery.

Duncan Lewis clinical negligence solicitors can also advise private and NHS cosmetic surgery patients on claiming compensation for negligence in care relating to cosmetic surgery, including failings in pre-operative patient evaluation, failure to monitor patient during surgery, hospital-acquired infections, poor post-surgery care – and life changing injuries as a result of botched cosmetic surgery, including stroke, heart attack and brain injury claims.
Patients who have suffered injury as a result of cosmetic surgery negligence have within three years from the date or diagnosis of injury in which to make a claim for compensation.
Reputable cosmetic surgeons will also not usually operate on a patient under the age of 18 unless there is a clinical reason for carrying out the procedure.
However, minors who suffer injury as a result of cosmetic surgery errors and negligence can make compensation claims up to the age of 21.
