Cosmetic treatments are more readily available than everIn 2017, over 28,315 cosmetic surgery procedures took place in the UK. However, this figure does not include those that are now also prepared to travel overseas to receive the surgery at a much lower cost in comparison to the UK.

It is alarming to hear that cosmetic procedures can be performed by non-medics without qualifications or training. With some purchasing the products used online. Research indicates that 83% of cosmetic procedures were performed by non-medics.

You put your trust in the person performing the procedure. Some may have falsely promoted that they are medics when administering treatment that requires an accredited professional. The most basic treatment, even if it is administered by a trained professional, can go wrong.

You may have a claim for compensation if:

• You weren’t given the correct information about the risks associated with your procedure.
• You were not given any aftercare or follow-up advice which impacted upon your recovery.
• A faulty product was used (i.e. breast implant).
• The procedure was not completed to an acceptable standard.
