Cosmetic Surgery Negligence
Cosmetic surgery has become far more popular and accessible across England and Wales in recent years, so it’s no surprise that negligence claims against cosmetic surgeons are rising at a considerable rate.
If you, a family member, or someone you know has suffered as a result of substandard cosmetic surgery, it’s crucial to seek professional legal advice as quickly as possible.
The team at Slater Heelis draw on decades of experience handling negligence claims for a wide range of surgical procedures. We’re here to talk through all legal options available to you. Once we confirm your best course of action, we can then focus on securing early interim payments and any corrective treatment that is required.
Our expert solicitors understand the stress that comes with claims of this nature. As with any surgery, complications can arise in relation to the risk of infection or anaesthesia, particularly if a general anaesthetic is required; however, psychological factors often play a bigger role in cosmetic treatment compared with non-elective surgery.
It’s completely natural for clients to feel guilt, shame or helplessness when a cosmetic procedure doesn’t go as planned. Our personal injury team have considerable experience in this area and have successfully pursued many different types of cosmetic malpractice claims. This includes: rhytidectomy (facelift surgery), rhinoplasty (nose surgery), blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery), hair replacement laser surgery, and breast implant surgery.
While we always seek maximum compensation for the people we represent, our main purpose is to restore their peace-of-mind. We aim to take the legal and financial stress away from our clients, allowing them to focus on what matters most – their physical and psychological recovery.
Despite the fact cosmetic procedures are now incredibly common – over 100,000 per year throughout England and Wales – there remains little regulation within the UK industry. It’s important to act quickly to ensure that any claim you may have can be validated and pursued.

What our clients say about us…
“When I asked Slater Heelis to represent me in April last year, we discussed a small claim between £3–5,000. I would have been happy with that, but your professionalism came through. You fought on my behalf and won an outstanding case with a far better outcome than I initially hoped for. You went that extra mile and ran my marathon for me. Thank you!”
