Cosmetic surgery is unique since it is carried out with a different purpose. When the surgeons carry out the surgery, their main aim is not to treat a disease, but rather, to increase the overall beauty of their patient. Of all of the common operations carried out the most popular one is liposuction, which is a process of getting rid of the excess fat around the waist line. Also a popular procedure is called a tummy tuck, where a surgeon will professionally cut some section of the tummy and remove the unwanted fat around the abdominal area in order to flatten and tighten the abdominal muscles.
Nevertheless, out of negligence, a surgeon could carry out the operation in the wrong manner, which in turn can cause issues leading to a botched operation and bad health or scars on the patient. In this event, the patient is then able to file a compensation claim for their tummy tuck injuries.
Also called abdominoplasty, tummy tuck is where the unwanted fat and skin is removed from the waist & abdominal areas. As a result, the patient will be left with a flatter stomach. This process takes a few hours, but the patient is usually asked to stay longer for the sake of a full recovery.
The compensation that you could claim will vary in accordance with the damage and the original costs paid for the surgery. Every tummy tuck condition will be claimed differently, and different patients have received different compensations in terms of money amounts. However, the compensation can go as much as £20,000. However, this is not a fixed figure and it will vary from one case to another.
If the tummy tuck has been carried out negligently, there are possible problems that could follow. There could be other symptoms, but one of them is that you might not feel your stomach (due to a numbness), especially the area where the surgery was carried out. There could also be severe pain around the stomach area which can cause discomfort. When you visit your GP, they will carry out a diagnosis to determine if you are well enough after your tummy tuck surgery. If the test is carried out and the GP determines that your nerves have been damaged or you have been left scarred because of the surgery, then you are eligible to make a compensation claim.
