What is a botched nose job or Rhinoplasty claim?
What must be understood when a Rhinoplasty is being done, and indeed, consented to prior to the rhinoplasty taking place, is that rhinoplasty is a complex procedure that requires expert knowledge and skill. If the surgery is carried out correctly, in sanitised, hygienic conditions, by a skilled surgeon, and with good aftercare treatment, then all should go to plan. However, if a surgeon acts negligently, this may not be the case.
Some of the most common examples of Rhinoplasty negligence, are:
Infection due to inadequate sanitising or using unsanitised equipment
Unidentified infection after the surgery
Dangerous blood clots, which can lead to further complications without adequate aftercare
Failure to obtain a consent form including medical history of the patient and warning them of the risks of side effects of the surgery
What are the most common injuries arising from a Rhinoplasty or nose job?
Whilst every case is different, some of the most common problems following negligent nose surgery can include:
• Excessive scarring and tissue damage in the surrounding area
• Excessive or abnormal bleeding
• Decreased or lost sense of smell
• Injury or deformation of the columella (skin separating the base of the nostrils)
• Breathing problems
• Nerve damage
Whether you have experienced one of the above problems, or another injury caused by your nose job surgery, get in touch with MG Legal’s specialist nose surgery personal injury solicitors for a free-of-charge, no obligation discussion about your case.
Can I only make a claim for private Rhinoplasty surgery, and can I claim for NHS negligence?
Whether your nose surgeon was an NHS practitioner or private consultant, they still owe you the same duty of care. Any other practitioners at their offices are also bound by the same legal duties and so, if you have been injured as a result of failings of a radiologist, anaesthetist or any other of member of their staff, you are still entitled to make a claim. Contact MG Legal’s experienced Rhinoplasty and nose job medical negligence solicitors and they will get to the bottom of the matter, providing clear and consistent advice throughout the case.
How much is my nose surgery negligence personal injury claim worth?
This is a common question we are asked for Rhinoplasty claims, and until we have full medical evidence, we can’t be totally sure. Personal injury claims are evidenced primarily in a report from a medical expert, in this instance likely a cosmetic surgeon, a surgeon specialising in rhinopasty procedures, and potentially a psychologist if you have significant psychological symptoms.
In terms of the injury type alone, not taking into consideration any other damages that make up your financial compensation claim, such as loss of earnings, the below table offers some guidance in line with the guidelines from the Judicial College:
Rhinoplasty Injury Description:
Expected Injury Compensation:
Trivial Scarring to the facial area with minor effect.
£1600.00 - £3310.00
Significant Scarring following a Rhinoplasty, which visible at a conversational distance.
£16,860.00 - £28,340.00
Very Severe Scarring after a Rhinoplasty, which is very disfiguring to the face.
£25,400.00 - £91,350.00
Does the surgery failing, not going to plan, or needing further work mean my treatment was negligent?
With any medical procedure, there are risks, and you should be asked to sign a Consent Form by your nose surgeon before any treatment commences. So, to answer the above question, needing further treatment or something not going to plan is not always evidence of negligence.
Many surgeons will use your Consent Form as a shield and try to use it to justify any failure in your surgery. However, MG Legal’s expert Rhinoplasty injury solicitors are experts at separating sub-par results from that of genuine negligence, and have access to a number of medical experts who can provide reports detailing the failings in your surgery. MG Legal's solicitors offer a cost-free review service of your claim, and will handle all matters we accept on a no win no fee basis.
How long will my Rhinoplasty claim take?
Every claim is different and so, whilst it is our goal to conclude your claim as quickly as possible, much depends on the severity of your injuries, the extent of expert medical evidence and whether the fault party disputes the claim or not. Different agents handle claims in different ways, for example the NHS Resolution Department, if your claim is against an NHS surgeon, will handle a claim differently to the Medical Defence Union, who act for a lot of private surgeons.
Whatever the process for your specific claim, MG Legal’s expert Rhinoplasty negligence personal injury solicitors will ensure your claim is progressed as efficiently as possible, and we will always be available for our clients to contact us for updates at any point so that you know what it going on.
How long have I got to make a nose job compensation claim?
Subject to the Limitation Act 1980, if you have been injured as a result of Rhinoplasty surgery, or a nose job, you have three years from the date of negligence on behalf of the surgeon, or the date you know about the negligence, to pursue a claim for personal injury.
So, if your surgeon makes a clear error on the day of the surgery, your three years would start straight away. However, if everything seems to have gone well initially, and then you later find out about an issue or injury, your three years starts from the day you find out this information.
