A tummy tuck – or an abdominoplasty – is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the world, and more and more people are undergoing the work as the treatments become increasingly affordable. The vast majority of patients are hugely satisfied with the results of tummy tucks but when substandard surgeons are at work, the consequences for the patient can be dire. The operation itself involves excess fat or skin being removed from the abdomen after weight has been lost, resulting in a tight, flat stomach and the removal of stretch marks. Many tummy tuck patients do opt for the surgery after weight loss, but new mothers and stomach surgery patients are also likely recipients of the procedure.
Fighting Clinical Negligence
There are three types of tummy tuck surgery – standard, mini and extended. Whilst most surgeons adhere to the highest possible standards, sadly this is not true of everyone, and many substandard doctors have been found cashing in on the market. Whilst some initial discomfort is to be expected, if the pain continues for much longer than you were told it would you may be entitled to compensation. Some patients may be unhappy with the appearance of the stomach after the work, or may simply feel that the results leave a lot to be desired. At Blackwater Law, we can help you to fight for the compensation that you deserve if your tummy tuck was performed by a negligent doctor.
Always on Your Side
We have worked a wide range of tummy tuck compensation claims and have a significantly high success rate. We’ll work closely alongside you to gather together as much evidence as we can to prove negligence did take place. Our experience enables us to easily identify substandard work and we have robust relationships with some of the medical world’s most knowledgeable experts. Get in touch today if the side-effects of the work have gone on longer than you would reasonably expect them to. Many patients contact us after discovering long-term swelling, discomfort, scarring and abdomen numbness or suffering from infections as a result of the invasive operation.
Battling for Justice
As the stomach is so close to several major organs there is a chance that something could do incredibly wrong. We have even worked on cases involving perforated bowels, to give just one example. Any tummy tuck compensation that you may be awarded will help you to cover various expenses as well as the pain and suffering caused by the surgery. You can expect to be paid for lost earnings as well as the costs of putting things right, and you may even be entitled to compensation to cover any necessary adjustments made to your home. We will always communicate effectively with you and let you know about any developments in your case as they happen. Talk to us today to discuss tummy tuck claims and find out whether you have a case.
