Rhinoplasty surgery is more commonly referred to as a ‘nose job’. This is typically undertaken for cosmetic reasons but it can also be done to reconstruct the nose if it is damaged by an accident or illness. It is not always done for aesthetic reasons either; sometimes rhinoplasty surgery is done to give the individual back the proper function of the nose so they can breathe through it and smell properly. It all depends on the individual situation.
Whatever the reason might be for undergoing this type of surgery, the surgeon performing the operation should inform you of what will happen prior to the procedure itself. He or she should inform you of all the pros and cons and not shy away from the potential downsides. The majority of surgeries go smoothly but in some cases problems can occur. While it is rare some patients have also succumbed to poor surgical procedures: a situation that can make things worse rather than improving their looks. Some people have brought claims against their surgeons in cases where negligence could be proven to have taken place. This could be worth considering if you have been through a tough operation of this kind.
Are you in a position to claim compensation for this surgical procedure?
Having a nose job won’t be something you have undertaken lightly. If you have had the procedure for cosmetic reasons it can be very stressful if something goes wrong. If you think you have cause to believe your surgeon was negligent in any way, shape or form, you should consult a professional injury compensation lawyer to discuss your situation further. This expert advice can help determine whether negligence played a part in your experience and if it did you can launch a claim against those responsible. The last thing you want is to be left with poor self-confidence or worse, the need to have further surgery.
