Cosmetic surgery compensation claims have risen dramatically over the last 10 years as more cosmetic surgery procedures are being undertaken in the UK than ever before. There has been an increase in less reputable surgeons who either mislead patients or harm through inexperience or neglect. There is also a lack of regulation in the UK regarding non-invasive procedures such as laser hair removal or dermal fillers. These can be carried out by individuals with little training and knowledge. When a patient is physically or psychologically injured following cosmetic surgery or feels they were not fully informed of the possible risks then there may be a claim for compensation.
