Compensation claims for cheek augmentation errors

When we talk about plastic surgery there are a whole host of procedures that come to the forefront of our attention, but one of the surgical procedures that we don’t come across so much is a cheek augmentation and this is a popular procedure undertaken by anyone who is looking to improve the size, shape and form of their cheeks.

Although it’s an uncommon procedure, this type of surgery is generally quite safe – but as with any type of surgery potential problems can occur. If you have been the victim of an error during the cheek augmentation process then you could look to make a compensation claim to cover any potential costs that you have incurred.

What type of error can occur during the chin augmentation process?

The chin augmentation process is certainly not a simple one and there are a whole host of potential problems which can occur as a result of this surgery. Some common examples of these problems include:

·         Mistakes made during a surgical procedure

·         Mistakes during the rehabilitation process

·         Mistakes made during the anaesthetic process

·         Injuries caused to surrounding tissue

·         Injuries caused after an infection.

How does a chin augmentation work?

A chin augmentation is very similar to any form of facelift, however it is primarily focussed on the chin area and involves complex surgical procedures around some of the body’s most delicate skin areas. Skin is generally tightened and in some cases implants are put in place to leave the person with very pronounced cheeks. This surgery is generally performed under local/general anaesthetic and as a result the person generally doesn’t feel any pain throughout the procedure.
