AvMA (Action against Medical Accidents) is celebrating its 35th birthday this year!
Cosmetic surgery is on the increase in the UK.
Many people wish to have cosmetic surgery for their own personal reasons, but sometimes it is needed for a medical reason. For example, after someone has suffered severe scarring or burns. Whatever the reason, and whether or not the cosmetic surgery is carried out under the NHS or privately, it must be carried out to an acceptable standard, as one is entitled to in all other types of surgery. If an error is made during cosmetic surgery, often these mistakes can lead to even more scars and injuries than the patient had initially. This is where our expertise in cosmetic surgery claims comes in.
We have successfully claimed compensation for people who have had nose reshaping, laser skin resurfacing, cosmetic dentistry, tummy tucks or gastric band surgery, breast enlargement and reduction, as well as face lifts. Sometimes the procedures involved will result in damage to nerves, arteries and organs, which can result in lifelong permanent disability. Also, infections can be contracted during such surgery and if untreated or not treated appropriately; the infection can cause severe illness and/or permanent disability. Whatever your need we are here to help with your cosmetic surgery claims.
