Types of Cosmetic Negligence Claims include:

 

  • The doctor or surgeon failing to obtain informed consent from the patient

  • The surgeon making misleading claims to induce the patient to proceed

  • The doctor not providing clear guidance on the risks associated with the surgery

                     Facelifts

                     Breast enlargement or reduction

                     Tummy tucks or gastric band surgery

                     Nose reshaping

                     Cosmetic dentistry

                     Brow lifts

 

 

  • The use of defective or substandard products such as implants

  • Other complications of cosmetic surgery, such as damage to organs, nerves and arteries

  • Post-surgery infection

Do they have insurance? It is important to determine whether the surgery is covered by insurance and therefore whether a claim can be made against the insurance policy.

 

What type of claim? It is common for a claim to made in negligence and it will be key to any claim to establish causation, namely that the doctor or surgeon failed in their duty and that caused damage. It is also possible in certain circumstances for there to be claims for breach of contract and/ or misrepresentation.
