With so many people now opting for surgery it is no surprise to see more and more cosmetic surgery clinics popping up all over the country. However, all types of surgery pose a risk to your health and you should be made aware of these risks before you undergo any treatment of this kind.

Types of Cosmetic Surgery

Cosmetic Surgery is not just about changing parts of your appearance that you are not happy with; it can also be necessary due to the effects of an accident or maybe defects which have been present since birth. There are so many different types of surgery but the most common ones are:

Breast Implant Regulations and Procedures

All breast implants are regulated and should only be performed by qualified doctors on premises which have been registered with the Quality Care Commission to ensure that they meet the national standards.

Cosmetic Surgery Risks and Complications

You should be made fully aware before surgery of all the risks and complications that may arise during or post surgery. The surgeon may not be able to create exactly the post operation appearance that you would like but this should be made clear. Your expectations must match what your surgeon is confident in achieving. Depression and loss of self-esteem are common psychological effects of botched surgery.

Common Types of Cosmetic Surgery Injuries

No matter what type of surgical procedure that you opt for, the risks will always be present. Your doctor needs to make you aware of the risks and also make it clear what is achievable from the surgery that you have asked for. Here are some of the common issues we encounter:

  • Disfigurement
  • Infections
  • Nerve damage
  • Asymmetrical results
  • Sagging or uneven skin
  • Failure to obtain consent

Can I claim for cosmetic surgery compensation?

If your cosmetic surgery has gone wrong or the results are far from what you were told to expect then you are eligible to make a claim for compensation. You can claim for any pain and suffering that you have gone through as well as any financial losses that you incur resulting from inability to work. You may be able to claim for any future costs of surgery that you may have to undergo to resolve the situation.
