facelift claims

Most commonly performed in patients in their 40s to 60s to reduce the signs of ageing, facelifts are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery in the UK.

Statistics suggest that 95% of all patients have an uncomplicated recovery following facelift surgery. Although only a handful of those remaining are victims of clinical negligence, when the surgery does go wrong the results can leave patients devastated.

Medical errors that may occur during facelift surgery include:

  1. Nerve damage – leading to full or partial paralysis of facial muscles
  2. Unsightly scarring
  3. Skin flap necrosis
  4. Changes in skin pigmentation
  5. Complications following anaesthetic
  6. Psychological trauma

Our experience tells us that many such clients suffer serious emotional problems when surgery does not go to plan, further eroding the patient’s self-perception. Our staff are able to discuss such sensitive issues with you in confidence.

Do you think it is a good case?

It is hard to assess the merits of a case fully before we have seen the relevant medical records and, if necessary, seen the reports from independent experts.  Our usual procedure is to consider the facts given to us by the client and then decide whether we are able to take the enquiry any further.  We would then review it again once the medical records and any other documents or reports are to hand, and indeed, will keep the merits of the case under review throughout the case.

How long will it take?

Investigation of a case usually takes between 18m-2yrs, although more complex cases can take longer. Much depends on how quickly the hospitals etc provide the medical records and then on what the waiting list of the experts are like, and whether you need to be seen by more than 1 expert.

What did you think of Lees Solicitors? 

I was kept constantly up to date as soon as information from the Defendant was received,  (rather than have to 'chase' and constantly ring up for news).Fiona Kempand her team treated me as a person and not just another client and it was always with courtesy, respect and friendliness.
