Cosmetic Nose Surgery

Cosmetic Nose Surgery

As the central feature of the face, many people feel self-conscious about their nose. Whether it is too large, too small or bent out of shape, growing numbers are opting to rectify their imperfections via cosmetic surgery. Known medically as a rhinoplasty, a nose job is fast becoming a common procedure, and can help improve the appearance of the nose and boost confidence.

However, a successful outcome is often entirely dependant upon the skill of the surgeon, as well as the overall care provided by the medical team. Therefore if you receive treatment that falls below an acceptable level, your cosmetic surgery could potentially cause further problems. For example, you may sustain a physical injury or be left with an undesirable aesthetic appearance. This will undoubtedly lead you to suffer extreme emotional distress, while the expense of having to pay for revisional surgery will be financially damaging.

So if your nose job has left you feeling like you wish you had never had the procedure, what exactly can you do about it? Have you been the victim of medical negligence? And can you claim compensation to help cover the costs of corrective surgery?

Cosmetic Nose Surgery Negligence

Like all operations performed under general anaesthetic, cosmetic nose surgery carries certain risks. A surgeon should advise a patient of these well in advance of the operation, thereby ensuring he/she is fully informed before consenting to surgery. The risks of rhinoplasty include infection, heavy nose bleeding and short term breathing difficulties.

Nevertheless, there are times when complications can be directly linked to the actions of medical professionals. For example, the surgeon may not display the appropriate level of skill during the operation, causing a patient to suffer physical harm.

Some of the most common types of cosmetic nose surgery negligence involve:-

  • Damage to the bridge of the nose eg. from excessive removal of tissue;
  • Nasal collapse;
  • Long-term breathing difficulties;
  • Asymmetrical or lopsided appearance;
  • Excessive scarring;
  • Failure to achieve agreed outcome eg. reduce breadth of nose.

Making a Medical Negligence Claim

If you have undergone cosmetic nose surgery which has caused you to suffer an injury, you need to speak to a medical negligence solicitor right away. That is because if you have been the victim of a substandard level of care, you could be entitled compensation for the harm you have endured. This will help to recompense for the pain and suffering you have experienced. It will also allow you to recover any finances you have lost as a result of your negligent treatment. This could include the cost of revisional surgery, along with a loss of earnings and travel expenses.
