Cosmetic Surgery in the news – the risks, the decline, the pressures

With recent news reports indicating that there has been a decline in the number of people undergoing certain cosmetic surgery procedures, we’ve found a continually growing number of people seeking help after suffering from cosmetic surgery negligence. With the subject of cosmetic surgery being in the news so prominently, there is a greater awareness of the risks and it’s believed that this is one reason why less people are reportedly going under the knife.

But our specialist lawyers who have obtained thousands of pounds for cosmetic surgery negligence victims are telling the tale of a subject that is still very popular amongst people in the UK.

Has your laser eye surgery gone wrong? Compensation advice from The Injury Lawyers

Statistics show that around 120,000 people have laser eye surgery in the UK each year, and NHS statistics show that less than 5% of people have any problems – so overall, laser eye surgery is generally deemed as safe.

But some people who have suffered with problems may have been the victim of negligence – so here is a little advice on the topic if you have suffered as a result of laser eye surgery gone wrong.

Concerns raised over allegations of laser eye surgery failures with Optical Express

Concerns have been reported by the media following issues that have been raised by Moorfields Eye Hospital, the largest eye clinic in the UK, to the MHRA about a lens fitted in to around 6,000 patients by Optical Express.

The claims come amid a law suit against the high street chain for its marketing practices where text messages have been used to offer competitions to win free laser eye surgery amongst other alleged invasive ways in which people have been contacted without consent.

Medical Negligence – something left in you after surgery?

It sounds like something from a horror story – having surgery and feeling pain and discomfort, only to find out that a surgical tool, instrument, or other item has somehow been left inside of you! The sheer thought of it is totally gruesome!

So what happens if you have surgery and find out that you need a second operation to remove something that shouldn’t have been left in there in the first place? Can you make a claim for personal injury compensation?

Tummy Tuck Compensation Claims

Abdominoplasty, or tummy tuck as most commonly known as, is one of the most routine and popular cosmetic surgery procedures around at the moment.  It is considered a rather low risk procedure when compared to other cosmetic practices; however it unfortunately still carries with it inherent risks and sometimes negligence can occur.

Surgeons must give the patient reasonable information about the risks to enable the patient to give valid consent to surgery. Therefore, if you do not feel you have been given enough information  about potential risks and side effects, you may be able to claim on this basis. Some of the most common injuries/claims in this area stem from the following:

Claim For Bad Hair Extensions

I know of many people, including myself, that have invested in hair extensions as some point or another because they are simply not happy with the way their hair looks. Be that because it is too thin, too short, too curly or too straight, hair extensions can give you the look that you wish you had been born with – or alternatively they can also give you the type of hair you love in the magazines. However, although in the majority of cases the result can look fantastic, many people can end up suffering because of bad hair extensions.

There are two main ways that hair extensions can be fitted:

Bonded – this is where the “fake” hair is bonded onto the “real” hair with a sort of clasp (usually black).
Glue – this is where the “fake” hair is literally glued onto the “real” hair.

Both of these procedures can put immense strain on the natural hair bond as the root has to hold an amount of hair that it is not used too. Therefore hair loss can be quite a common occurrence but hair loss can also be a result of negligent fitting. Anyone who is putting hair extensions in should be properly trained to do so as there are certain things that can mean hair loss is extreme and also aggravation of the scalp.
