Clinical Negligence - Cosmetic Surgery Gone Wrong

Cosmetic surgery that doesn’t go as planned is most commonly breast and facial surgery, rhinoplasty (nose re-shaping), face lifts and liposuction.

The most common cosmetic surgery gone wrong claims arise from dissatisfaction with the aesthetic result of the procedure. Claims also arise from poor surgical technique or inadequate counselling before the operation.

Other problems are surgeons agreeing to unsuitable surgery and failing to provide proper information about the potential risks involved.

Often patients have had surgery abroad or have not chosen a consultant carefully by ensuring they’re listed on the General Medical Council (GMC) specialist register.
