Patients spend over £200 million per year on cosmetic surgery so it is no surprise that there are a significant number of Cosmetic Surgery Claims as well. Sometimes there can be complications following these Cosmetic Surgery procedures and the effects can be devastating. The scandal of PIP breast implants, made of non-surgical grade silicone, rocked the lives of thousands of women in 2010 and led to huge numbers of Cosmetic Surgery Claims.
We are able to give you immediate legal representation, rehabilitation and treatment no matter where you are in England, Scotland or Wales. We also provide urgent:
- Home visits
- Hospital visits for those who are unable to meet us at home

What Does It Cost To Make Cosmetic Surgery Claims?
100% of our Cosmetic Surgery Claims are made on a Conditional Fee Agreement which you will know as a “No Win No Fee” Agreement which means that you do not have to worry about any financial risk at all.
Many people are put off from making cosmetic surgery claims due to the worry around the cost, as most cosmetic procedures will have cost a great deal of money in the first place. We will provide you with a free of charge appointment with us to discuss your cosmetic surgery claim and help you to decide if you would like to make a claim. We guarantee that if you lose your cosmetic surgery claims you pay ABSOLUTELY NOTHING so you have nothing to lose by making a cosmetic surgery claim.

Breast Augmentation Claim
Many people know breast augmentation by the term breast implants, but they are one in the same. There can be short term complications following breast augmentation surgery, but you could suffer from long term complications also.
The short term complications in breast augmentation can include:
- build up of fluid
Most of these short term complications will resolve with treatment, but the longer term complications may have a more marked physical and emotional impact on your life.
The long term breast augmentation complications can include:
- Capsular Contracture – this is when the scar tissue begins to shrink around the breast implant over time, which can make the breast feel hard and cause pain and discomfort
- Rupture – this is when the breast implant bursts and starts to leak. This can happen as the breast implant breaks down over time, is damaged in the operation, has a defect or your breast is injured
- Siliconomas – If your breast implant ruptures you may get some leakage outside of the scar tissues and into your breast. They can cause hard and painful lumps
- Scarring – following the surgery scars may be itchy, sore, read and lumpy
- Folds and Creasing – breast implants can cause the skin to ripple, fold, crease or look different after having your implant
If you have had breast implants and you think that you may have a breast augmentation claim, please do contact us today.
Used carefully, many women and some men are using Botox as a way to delay the wrinkles and defy looking older. Botox is the injection of a toxin into facial muscles which ‘relaxes’ them, meaning lines and wrinkles are less obvious.
Currently, untrained beauticians as well as doctors and nurses are allowed to administer Botox and there are some worrying complications that can happen following a treatment.
Side effects from Botox are:
- bruising or redness
- having difficulty speaking, swallowing or breathing
- allergic reaction (swelling, problems breathing and a rash)
As you can see some of these side effects are really very serious and as no training is required to administer Botox virtually anyone could be providing this treatment. You should have been advised of all the risks involved prior to your treatment.
If you feel like you have a claim for Botox compensation, please call us today.
