Most commonly performed in patients in their 40s to 60s to reduce the signs of ageing, Facelifts are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery in the UK.
Statistics suggest that 95% of all patients have an uncomplicated recovery following Facelift surgery. Although only a handful of those remaining are victims of Clinical Negligence, when the surgery does go wrong the results can leave patients devastated.
Medical errors that may occur during Facelift surgery include:
- Nerve Damage – leading to full or partial paralysis of facial muscles
- Unsightly Scarring
- Skin Flap Necrosis
- Changes in Skin Pigmentation
- Complications following Anaesthetic
- Psychological Trauma
Our experience tells us that many such Clients suffer serious emotional problems when surgery does not go to plan, further eroding the patient’s self-perception. Our staff are able to discuss such sensitive issues with you in confidence.
