Cosmetic Surgery Injuries Claims

So you’ve made the decision to have cosmetic surgery but with all the time spent day-dreaming about how perfect the results will be, have you actually fully researched cosmetic surgery in Ireland? Once the decision is made to ‘go under the knife’ it is imperative that you trust the surgeon in question. Ending up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon will increase chances of poor results, extra expense, further surgery and heartache. In extreme cases the damage caused by an inexperienced surgeon can be irreparable.

The first decision to make is whether or not you choose to go with an individual plastic surgeon or one of the many clinics available. One thing to bear in mind is that the Medical Council have no control over these clinics. The power of the Council relates only to individual surgeons and not to the practice itself. If you are unsure about which route to take it is advisable to consult with a GP who can help to point you in the right direction.

Choosing a Plastic Surgeon

First and foremost, before choosing a surgeon, check with the Medical Council that he/she is a registered specialist in plastic surgery. It is advisable to also check with the Association of Plastic Surgeons. If the surgeon is not registered as a specialist in plastic surgery then it is time to start looking elsewhere. It is also very important to ensure that the surgeon has full indemnity insurance before undergoing any surgery. If something did go wrong, and the surgeon did not have indemnity insurance, you, as the patient, can be left in a very precarious position. If you have suffered from inferior cosmetic surgery resulting in irreparable damage you may be entitled to compensation.
