Compensation for Cosmetic Surgery
Many cosmetic procedures on British people are performed overseas, for example, Eastern Europe is a common area to offer these services and the standards of the treatments offered are poor.
Our cosmetic surgery claims solicitors have won many cases against cosmetic surgeons and clinics. We believe that the impact of such cases has been a driver of improved standards and regulation. Over the same period there has been a huge increase in public demand for this type of surgery.
Sadly, there are still those who claim to be experts, yet have no right to do so. They often offer “free” consultations, take booking fees and non-refundable deposits with the effect of locking patients into decisions, which might not have been made with the benefit of the right advice. It is no surprise therefore that our solicitors are seeing an increase in cosmetic surgery claims due to cosmetic and plastic surgery going wrong.
