Cosmetic surgery and procedures are on the increase in the UK for both men and women. The definition of cosmetic surgery is: “operations or other procedures that revise or change the appearance, colour, texture, structure or position of bodily features to achieve what patients perceive to be more desirable”. Accordingly, it includes surgical and non surgical procedures some examples of which include:
Surgical procedures are probably one of the most important decisions you’re likely to make and it follows that you need to be sure you will be dealing with clinicians and therapists that you can trust. Therefore, it is a good idea to have a list of questions ready for the clinic including the risks and complications of your chosen procedure; success rate; time frame; type and length of after care; how long the results last; will you need pain relief and how long does the procedure take. It is also important to make sure the surgical procedures are provided by a clinic registered with the Care Quality Commission.
When cosmetic surgery goes wrong the effects (both physical and psychological) can be extremely serious. At Bray & Bray we can help to put this right and claim compensation, including the cost of the procedure and remedial surgery, and other treatments made necessary by any negligent treatment e.g. camouflage make-up and counselling.
