Both temporary and permanent dermal fillers have risen in popularity over the years. They are used to help fill out fine lines in the face and to add fullness to your lips, cheeks and the bridge of the nose.
This is normally a quick and painless procedure, however the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) have reported that 69% of surgeons have seen problems caused by dermal fillers.
These procedures usually take place in private clinics. It would be very rare for dermal fillers to be offered by the NHS.
You may have a medical negligence claim if:
- Your filler moved to another part of your face, or body
- You have developed an infection in the area surrounding the injection
- You skin became inflamed and you developed granuloma (where cells clump together in your lungs)
How can we help?
Here at Negligence Claimline our friendly team are here to help you get the support you need. Working with a panel of specialist medical negligence solicitors, we can assist you with your potential claim.
Sometimes an apology is enough, but in other cases compensation will be the only solution to help you get your life back on track.
Our service, putting you in contact with one of our expert panel members, is free and you are not obliged to take the advice the solicitor gives you, or to progress your claim any further if you do not wish.
Can I sue the NHS?
The NHS was created so that good healthcare should be available to all, and it is one of the country’s proudest achievements. However, if something goes wrong during your treatment you deserve answers and, where necessary, financial compensation.
We do not treat your claim lightly. The treatment you consider negligent must be considered unreasonable, irresponsible, and harmful.
However, when someone suffers an injury that impacts their live, or that of a loved one, then it is vital that the NHS has the procedures in place to both compensate the patient and learn from their mistakes.
