Cosmetic Surgery Negligence, What You Need To Know

Cosmetic surgery negligence claims can be very stressful to anyone experiencing them, whether it caused mental or physical strain, you could be eligible to claim cosmetic negligence compensation. Since March 2020, there has been a 70% increase in demand for virtual consultations during the lockdown, with a 64% overall increase in virtual consultations. Over the last decade, social media has had a huge impact on self-esteem and body image with “Snapchat Dysmorphia” setting unrealistic face and body standards for younger generations, leading more people to reach out to cosmetic procedures.

What types of cosmetic procedures are there?

Cosmetic procedures are split into two categories, invasive and non-invasive cosmetic procedures.

Invasive procedures are ones that “break the skin”, meaning that they are usually done surgically.

Examples of these include:

  • facelifts
  • brow lifts
  • body lifts

Non-invasive procedures are usually more risk-free, meaning lower chances of complications. They take less time and the recovery time is a lot shorter. These procedures have grown in popularity over the last couple of years.

Some examples of these procedures include:

  • Botox
  • Chemical peels
  • Derma fillers

However, the demand for these procedures has increased drastically over the last few years, with the most popular procedure being breast augmentation for women and rhinoplasty for men.
