Rhinoplasty or nasal reconstruction

It's important that you choose a medical negligence lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to deal with your compensation claim effectively.

When it comes to plastic surgery, the face is one of the most popular areas for most surgical procedures, and as the medical world continues to advance we are now able to make alterations to almost every single part of our bodies. For people who believe that their nose sticks out, is too big, or they just don’t like the shape of it in general, rhinoplasty is a popular choice which helps them to reshape and resize their nose to suit exactly how they would like it.

Like any form of plastic surgery which involves the face, rhinoplasty can be dangerous if not performed correctly and if your surgeon is negligent towards you during the plastic surgery procedure then you could be left with serious injuries and scarring as a result. If this does happen and you are left with injuries, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim.

WHO CAN I CLAIM AGAINST FOR RHINOPLASTY NEGLIGENCE?

As with most surgery claims when it comes down to surgical negligence your claim will most likely be directed towards your surgeon or a member of staff who may work at the operating theatre. If you feel that your surgeon has been negligent towards you in any way, this includes not explaining the surgical procedure correctly, making a mistake during the surgery or not directing you through a proper rehabilitation process then you could make a claim.

In addition, if another member of staff has been negligent towards you during your stay, perhaps you were administered with the wrong anaesthetic or you developed an infection as the result of poor hygiene, then you could also be eligible to make a claim.

WHAT ARE SOME OF THE INJURIES I COULD CLAIM FOR?

There are a number of injuries that you could claim for when it comes to rhinoplasty and these include:

  • Facial scarring and disfiguration
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Internal bleeding
  • Discolouration of the nose and surrounding tissue.

ARE THERE ANY ADDITIONAL COSTS THAT I COULD CLAIM?

  • Loss of income – if you are unable to perform your job as a result of negligence on the part of your surgeon then you could be able to claim for any loss of income that you have incurred
  • Psychological trauma – having a facial disfigurement or scarring can be an incredibly traumatising experience it can make you feel uncomfortable in social situations and lose much of your self–esteem, in effect it can have a large impact on your life, as a result you may be able to claim.
