Can I sue a surgeon for a bad nose job?

Rhinoplasty – more commonly known as a nose job – is a relatively popular procedure for those who want to change their nose structure, shape or size.

Many people undergo the procedure for cosmetic reasons. But it can also have health benefits such as opening up nasal passages and enhancing breathing ability.

But as with any operation, there is always a chance that you could experience complications during or after your nose job. If these complications were caused by the negligence of a medical professional, you could be entitled to make a claim against them.

Some examples of rhinoplasty negligence include:

  • Failure to explain the risks of the procedure
  • Failure to fully assess your suitability for the surgery
  • Failure to provide a sterile environment
  • Lack of follow-up or aftercare instructions

If you’ve suffered harm due to any kind of negligence from the surgeon who carried out your nose job, we could help you pursue compensation and support. Get in touch with our friendly claims advisors to find out more.

Why should I make a nose job claim?

Having a nose job go wrong can be devastating. You’ll likely have pinned big hopes on the surgery and the results it might bring – which can make it even more upsetting when things don’t go as planned.

A failed nose job can also bring significant health complications, including:

  • Blood clots or excessive bleeding
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Loss of smell or taste
  • Nerve damage
  • Permanent scarring

We know that making a claim won’t reverse what happened. But it could help you to move on from the experience. It will also reduce the likelihood of the same thing happening to someone else.

You may have had to take time off work to recover after your nose job, or you might be facing the cost of private treatment to correct your surgery. Claiming compensation can help to remove some of this financial pressure – so you can focus on getting better.

How can First4Lawyers help?

We work with solicitors who are experts in cosmetic surgery negligence claims. They will speak to you about the negligence you suffered and gather evidence to strengthen your case for compensation.

Our claims advisors and solicitors understand that the idea of making a claim can be daunting – especially if you’re still recovering. They will do all they can to make sure you’re comfortable and answer any questions you may have about the claims process.

For these types of claims, we offer a No Win No Fee service. This means that there will be no upfront costs and you’ll have nothing to pay if your claim is unsuccessful.

Only pay a fee if you receive compensation

Our No Win No Fee solicitors will take a success fee from the compensation you are awarded for a successful claim in the form of a percentage of your damages. This could be up to 25% but it won't be more than that, except in cases of road traffic accidents and housing disrepair. Changing laws mean our solicitors will now take a payment of 35% of the final compensation amount plus VAT for all road traffic accident and housing disrepair claims.

First4Lawyers are an award-winning claims management company with a track record of delivering service that our clients love.

Nose job claim FAQs

Is there a time limit for making a nose job claim?

In most cases, you’ll have three years to make a claim for compensation after a nose job that has gone wrong. This may seem like a long time but we would always encourage seeking legal advice as early as you’re able to.

Starting a claim sooner rather than later will often make it easier for your solicitor to access medical records and other helpful evidence. It may also be easier for you to recall the details of what happened if the negligence took place more recently.

How much compensation will I get for a bad nose job?

Your case will be unique to you. So it’s difficult to say exactly how much compensation you could be entitled to without speaking to you first.

But if your claim is successful, any compensation you receive will usually be split into two parts. These are known as general and special damages:

  • General damages
    These damages address the emotional and physical suffering you’ve endured as a result of the negligence you experienced. For a rough estimate of how much you could receive in general damages, try our free compensation calculator.
  • Special damages
    These are intended to compensate you for any financial losses you’ve suffered as a result of your operation. This could include any loss in earnings, the cost of corrective surgery, or the expense of travel to and from medical appointments.

Your solicitor will consider the negligence you endured as well as its impact when negotiating for your compensation. So you can feel confident that any settlement you receive is reflective of what you’ve been through.

I think I have a nose job claim – what should I do?

If you have any concerns about your nose job, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Your health is more important than anything else, so this should always be prioritised.

After this, you could consider getting in touch with us to find out if you have a claim for compensation. Our advisors will ask you a few straightforward questions about your situation before letting you know if you have a strong case.

If we think you could have a successful claim, we’ll ask if you’d like to be put in touch with one of our specialist solicitors. This decision will be entirely up to you and there will be no obligation to go forward at this point.
