Beauty and the Law

Published: 3rd September 2010

'Beauty is in the eye of the Beholder?'  Recent cosmetic surgery figures are on the rise, with a 275% rise in breast augmentation ops since 2002 alone (BAAPS Annual Audits for Cosmetic Surgery procedures).  It remains to be seen if this will be affected by the credit crunch!

Although every procedure carries risks, it is possible to consider a potential claim if things go wrong, perhaps with physical and psychological consequences.  Cosmetic Surgery negligence claims are often linked with clinical negligence i.e. surgical error and/or product liability claims for example involving Botox.

Ward Gethin are personal injury specialists. Successful previous claims also include hair damage and bikini wax cases.
