If you have had a bad outcome from cosmetic surgery it may be possible to sue your cosmetic surgeon.
Like other medical professionals cosmetic surgeons owe their patients a duty to take reasonable care in providing treatment, which includes making known to patients the potential risks and possible unfavourable outcomes of the treatment.
Where the results of a cosmetic procedure simply do not meet your expectations, you may still have grounds to make a claim against the surgeon for breach of contract, if he or she significantly under-delivered on what was promised.
Not every injury, complication or unfavourable result will amount to negligence or breach of contract, however you may still be able to resolve your dispute with a cosmetic treatment provider by other means.
It’s important to get advice for your specific situation. Check if you can make a risk-free compensation claim and get free initial advice from our Principal lawyer, Greg Smith.
