Facelift and neck surgery
Facelift surgery (Rhytidectomy) and neck lift surgery (platysmaplasty or cervicoplasty) are some of the most popular anti-ageing cosmetic procedures in the UK, with 7,419 people having the surgery in 2015 (according to the British Association of Aesthetic and Plastic Surgeons).
Neck lifts and face lifts are often performed in conjunction with one another. Whether performed in an NHS hospital or a private hospital, unfortunately complications can happen. All surgery has risks, but if you have been left suffering we will help you get the answers you deserve.
You many have suffered medical negligence if since your surgery you have:
- Suffered an infection from the surgery
- Suffered from blood clots
- Excessive scarring
- Temporary or permanent hair loss along the incisions
- Facial asymmetry following surgery
- Neck tightness where your skin has been stretched too much
- Nerve damage resulting in numbness, partial or full paralysis of the facial muscles

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.
