If you have had a facial implant operation which has gone wrong in some way, you may be able to bring a claim for compensation.
Any kind of surgery has risks associated with it, but if you have suffered harm because of mistakes made by the treating healthcare professionals, it isn’t right that you should be left with the consequences.
Compensation can be a way of obtaining some redress for the pain and suffering you have been put through, and can pay for corrective surgery, other treatment, and other losses which have followed.
At Truth Legal, our expert clinical negligence solicitors can help you claim the compensation that is rightfully yours.
What can go wrong with facial implant surgery?
Facial implant surgery often involves inserting a silicone implant under the skin as a way of restoring volume to the face. This is frequently done to counteract damage to the face, such as after an accident or another type of surgery, or as a cosmetic procedure to reverse some of the changes of the ageing process.
While the vast majority of these operations are carried out without incident and the patient is perfectly happy with the results, the delicate nature of the facial area means there are risks and occasional problems with such a procedure.
Whatever the background, a facial implant is often done to boost self-confidence. As such it can be shattering when the procedure is not only unsuccessful, but also results in negative side-effects.
These side effects may suggest that cosmetic surgery negligence has occurred. They can include:
- Abnormal scarring
- Migration of the implant
- Blood clots/Haematoma
- Nerve damage
- Loss of sensation in the lips
- Reaction to general anaesthetic
