Cosmetic surgery is a big business in the UK. In 2013 statistics show that over 50,000 cosmetic procedures were performed on Brits and that figure is predicted to rise in 2014. The most popular surgical procedures include breast augmentation and tummy tucks. While most procedures are performed successfully and without any problems, there are times when they go wrong and this could seriously affect the patients involved.
Surgeons are required to a certain level of care. When that level care falls below par and an error is made causing an injury to someone a claim for compensation could be made. A patient could sustain many injuries if a mistake is made during their surgery. Common problems patients face include infections, damage to the nerves, deformities, poor scaring, loss of sensation or loss of muscle control. These problems can also lead to the patient suffering from psychological problems such as sleeping problems, anxiety and depression.
