When it comes to losing weight many people choose to go to the gym or change their diet, but in some situations this doesn’t always work. Regardless of how many hours a person may put in at the gym, sometimes that stubborn weight just won’t shift, and in this situation the person may choose to surgery as an alternative method of ridding those last few pounds.

As one of the UK’s most common plastic surgery techniques, liposuction is performed on many areas of the body with the aim of removing unwanted fat which may have been left over from weight gain or after pregnancy. Once the fat has been removed the skin is stretched back over the area leaving the skin taught giving it a youthful and healthy appearance.

Similar to any surgical procedure, liposuction can be dangerous, especially as it is performed in a very delicate area of the body. If you have been injured as the result of negligence during your liposuction surgery then you could be eligible to make a claim.

WHO CAN I CLAIM AGAINST FOR LIPOSUCTION/ABDOMINOPLASTY INJURIES?

In addition you could also claim against hospital staff if you feel that they have been negligent during your stay, this could include nurses who may have not given you the correct care or may not have correctly steralised the surgery equipment.
