Claim compensation for negligent facelift surgery

A facelift – also known as a rhytidectomy – is a cosmetic surgical procedure involving the removal of excess skin, usually from the lower half of the face. This is to create a tightening effect on the skin and reduce signs of aging like wrinkles and jowls.

Like any surgery, facelifts carry some risk. But if your surgeon or healthcare team have failed to give you the proper standard of care – and this has caused you harm – you may be able to claim compensation.

Truth Legal can help. We can explain your legal rights in a clear, practical way. And if you wish to make a claim, our expert clinical negligence solicitors are ideally qualified to secure the compensation you deserve.
