Compensation For A Negligent Nose Job

If your nose job has resulted in a less than satisfactory outcome, you need to contact a solicitor to discuss the treatment you have received. This is because you may well be the victim of medical negligence, meaning you could be entitled to compensation for the damage you have suffered as a result of medical incompetence. This will prove to be very useful, helping to cover the costs of any corrective surgery you may require.

“Nose Jobs Gone Wrong”

A nose job, known medically as 'rhinoplasty', will usually be performed for one of two reasons. Firstly and most commonly, a patient may undergo an elective rhinoplasty to improve the aesthetic appearance of their nose. This might involve, for example, removing a bump in the bridge of the nose, or making the nose shorter and slimmer. Secondly, a patient may report breathing problems and require surgery to improve his or her breathing airways. This is especially frequent amongst rugby players who often develop problems after years of playing a contact sport.

Whatever a patient's motivation for having a nose job, it is important he/she has realistic expectations. Indeed, it is not always possible for a surgeon to achieve a patient's desired look – surgery does have its limitations. Therefore if the final result does not meet a patient's demands, it cannot necessarily be said that negligence has occurred. If a surgeon has displayed the appropriate level of skill and expertise, producing what would be considered by most as an acceptable result, then there will not be grounds for litigation.

However, there are times when a nose job is performed by a surgeon who fails to show the expected level of skill and expertise. If this substandard level of care causes a patient to be left with a defect, it is possible that a medical negligence claim could follow. This may occur if a nose job causes a patient to suffer:-

  • Unacceptable scarring;
  • An unacceptable aesthetic appearance – eg. obvious asymmetry;
  • Loss of sense of smell;
  • Nerve damage;
  • Disfigurement.

Claiming compensation for a poorly performed nose job

If you have been one such victim of a poorly performed nose job, you should try to speak to a solicitor as soon as possible. If your surgeon is found to have carried out your procedure without displaying an acceptable level of care, you will be entitled to compensation. This will compensate for the pain and suffering you have been wrongfully caused, and will reimburse you for any financial losses you have incurred. Such financial support will undoubtedly be a great help to you during this time, and will also ensure you are able to pay for corrective treatment you may now need.
