Age has an effect on us all. For some people, the effect is such that they want to have face lift surgery to improve the way they look. There is more than one type of surgery to improve the appearance of your face, and you can discuss the various options with your surgeon before undergoing the procedure. We all age in different ways and while some people get bags under their eyes others will get saggy skin elsewhere on their face.
Whatever procedure you have, you would expect your surgeon to exercise their duty of care in ensuring you are kept safe and healthy throughout the experience. While it is normal to expect some discomfort, bruising and swelling after the procedure, face lift surgery should not lead to unexpected complications. If this should occur and you feel you had a bad experience as a result of having this procedure, you may want to find out more about medical negligence compensation. Thankfully, few procedures result in any real problems that are due to negligence but it is worth remembering there is always the potential for this to happen. If you think you have a case that should be answered, it is worth finding out more.
Can you claim compensation for this type of procedure?
It depends largely on whether it can be proven that the surgeon was negligent in some way. For example infections can occur after operations of any kind but they do not automatically mean those involved in your medical care were negligent. The chances of anything going wrong with face lift surgery are thankfully rare. Most surgeons are excellent and will provide you with the right treatment according to your own specific situation and care. However, if you do think negligence was to blame for an adverse reaction or experience, you should get professional advice.
