Nose Job Negligence Claims
The Medical Negligence Experts work with law firms who, in short, know nose job negligence claims.
Rhinoplasty is frequently referred to as a nose job. It’s one of the most common types of cosmetic surgery carried out in the UK. According to the industry body, the British Association of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), more than 4,200 patients had their noses surgically reshaped last year.
As a result, that activity makes it the sixth most popular type of cosmetic surgery. Moreover, it shows a rise of nearly 15% over the previous year. Though surgical procedures have tighter regulation than non-surgical cosmetic treatments, negligence can still happen.
What is Nose Job Negligence?
Rhinoplasty may be more accessible than in previous years, but it should not be undertaken lightly. Nose reshaping is a surgical procedure requiring general anaesthetic and a stay in the hospital. Negligence can occur when the standard of care before, during, or after surgery falls below what is acceptable, and a patient suffers injury as a result.
Examples of nose job negligence can include:
- Inadequate pre-surgery patient assessment.
- Failure to advise the patient about potential risks and outcomes, and to obtain informed consent.
- Surgical errors, including incorrectly administered anaesthetic.
- Inadequate postoperative monitoring and care, including failing to identify and treat an infection.
One case study of cosmetic surgery negligence features a model who wants refinement of the tip of her nose. Unfortunately, the surgery leaves her nose with uneven nostrils and a broader bridge with a dent in it. Though the surgeon initially denies liability, the court awards the claimant a significant amount of money. Consequently, it will cover:
- general damages she suffers due to the medical professionals’ inability to deliver a sufficient duty of care;
- the cost of reparative surgery for rhinoplasty claims and rhinoplasty procedure, and;
- also a loss of earnings during the extended recuperation time. (Accordingly, she was unable to work due to the radical alteration of her features from the medical treatment).
How can we help with rhinoplasty compensation claims?
Get in touch with The Medical Negligence Experts if you are unhappy with your rhinoplasty and believe negligence may be the cause. Patients have been able to claim damages for bodily harm such as scarring, misshapen nostrils, and a damaged septum.
We always recommend clients seek legal advice as early as possible as there is a time limit for submitting a claim for damages caused by medical negligence, which is usually three years from the date the injury happened. In spite of the pain and suffering, noticeable damage as a result of a negligent cosmetic procedure only becomes apparent over time. For example when scar tissue forms and changes the shape of the nose.
In these instances, the time limit starts from the date it was apparent the negligent treatment causes the injury. By speaking with us directly, we can do real-time compensation calculators of the probability of success for your claim.
The team of solicitors we work with at The Medical Negligence Experts have experience in handling all types of rhinoplasty surgery negligence claims. Not to mention other types of cosmetic surgery claims, too. We can help to determine whether you have grounds for making a claim. In short, whether it is possible to prove negligent care causes your injury.
Next, we advise how best to proceed, supporting you and representing your interests to obtain the best possible outcome in your case. Our team will compile the evidence necessary to support your request, and do all we can to finalise your claim swiftly and smoothly.
