What types of mistakes can occur in facelift surgery? 

As is the case with all cosmetic surgery procedures, there is a degree of risk involved in facelift surgery. Still, there are a number of different actions and mistakes by a medical professional that advance beyond this initial risk, and could lead to injuries for the patient. 
 
These include, but are not limited to:- 
 
A failure to properly explain/get signed consent for the risks involved in the surgery beforehand 
A subpar surgical technique during the operation 
A lack of precautionary or sanitary measures in place during, or after, the surgery 
Failing to offer the patient enough care or attention, leading to possible failure to recognise developing injuries or illnesses 
A lack of clear instruction/guidance regarding required aftercare for the patient 

What kind of injuries can occur as a result of a negligent facelift surgery? 

There are a huge range of kinds of injuries, and severity of injuries that can occur as a result of medical negligence before, during, or after a facelift procedure. Some of the most common are:- 
 
Scarring to the face or neck- some scarring is to be expected with a facelift procedure, but excessive scarring, or scarring that does not subside within a few months, may be a sign of medical negligence 
Infections- this is often caused by a negligent approach to the cleanliness of the equipment and/or environment 
Excessive or abnormal bleeding requiring further medical assistance 
Nerve damage- due to the location of the surgery and the large n umber of nerves located around the face and neck, nerve damage is not uncommon in facelift surgeries. This can result in a loss of sensation and a reduction in facial movement ability

How much is my facelift personal injury claim worth? 

As is the case with all personal injury claims, the amount of financial compensation that you could be entitled to as a result of medical negligence regarding a facelift procedures will vary depending on what injuries you have sustained, and how severe they are in nature. 
 
It is impossible to exactly estimate how much a specific claim will receive, but our specialist personal injury and medical negligence solicitors can offer some guidance with reference to the Judicial College’s 15th edition guidelines for the assessment of general damages in personal injury. 
 
It is always important to remember that these estimates cover the compensation available for the injury alone, and do not take into account any further payments for special damages, such as loss of earnings and care costs. 
Injury: 
Estimated compensation: 
Very severe scarring- where the claimant is fairly young (teens to early 30s) and the disfigurement and psychological impact is severe 
£27,940 to £91,350 
Less severe scarring- where the disfigurement is still substantial and the psychological response significant 
£16,860 to £45,440 
Significant scarring- where some cosmetic disability is present, and the psychological impact limited or has diminished 
£8,550 to £28,240 
Less significant scarring- where the scar or scars can be mainly camouflaged and the scars do not markedly affect the appearance of the claimant 
£3,710 to £12,900 
Trivial scarring- where the effect is minor in nature and appearence  
£1,600 to £3,310 

How long do I have to make a personal injury claim for a negligent facelift cosmetic surgery? 

Generally speaking, you can make a compensation claim for any injuries or illnesses that persist beyond the period of recovery given to you by your surgeon. This is normally a few months, by which point any severe after-effects should have subsided. 
 
From this point onwards, you have until three years after your surgery to pursue a personal injury claim for any medical negligence that you were subject to. There are some exceptions in place to this rule for both minors and those who are pursuing the claim on behalf of a loved one with limited mental capacity.
