Eyelid Surgery Claims

Make a compensation claim for negligent eyelid surgery

Eyelid surgery – also known as blepharoplasty – is a delicate cosmetic procedure. It involves the removal of excess skin, fat and muscle around the eyes, and is often done to undo signs of aging or for health reasons.

Surgeons who carry out this procedure require specialist accreditation, but even if your procedure is carried out by a suitably qualified medical professional treatment errors can still occur.

If you have not received the proper standard of care when undergoing eyelid surgery – whether through a surgical mistake, poor after-care, or insufficient warnings of risk – you may be entitled to seek compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.

Truth Legal can explain your legal position and rights. If you have the basis for a claim, our expert solicitors can also provide exceptional legal representation and support.

What are the effects of eyelid surgery negligence?

Due to the invasive nature of eyelid surgery, it is normal for patients to experience some discomfort following the operation. Bruising, swelling and irritation are common side effects, but when these are experienced over a lengthy period, or where other issues develop, it may mean that your surgery was carried out negligently. 

Common consequences can include:



Removing too little/too much skin or tissue

Damage to the eye itself

Asymmetrical-looking eyes

Blurred or double vision

Dry itchy eyes

Bleeding behind the eye

Claiming compensation with Truth Legal

At Truth Legal, we understand that one of the main reasons to have cosmetic surgery is to boost confidence and self-esteem – and if this goes wrong, the emotional impact can be extremely damaging. This is, of course, coupled with the financial impact: the costs of the procedure, the costs of physical and mental rehabilitation and the costs to your income that injuries may cause.

If you have suffered these consequences because of the negligent behaviour of those treating you, we believe you are entitled to seek justice and be compensated for all that you’ve had to endure as a result.
