About Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular minimally invasive cosmetic procedure intended to rejuvenate skin and improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Some argue that the cosmetic surgery industry is not adequately regulated, and that procedures like dermal fillers and botox are increasingly being carried out without adequate training or safety procedures. The BBC has said it is a "cosmetic crisis waiting to happen."

Dermal fillers compensation claims

Increasing numbers of people are claiming compensation for cosmetic procedures that have gone wrong. The two main reasons for dermal filler compensation claims are as follows.

Procedural error

A dermal filler negligence claim can be made against a cosmetic surgeon or a clinic if they are found to be responsible for procedural error. Procedural errors include:

  • Incorrect placement of fillers

This can cause lumps and bumps under the skin

  • Overcorrection

When too much filler is injected and must be removed this can be difficult to do

Failure to advise

Medical professionals are required to inform their patients of the potential risks and side-effects of treatment so that the patient can make an informed decision. If the cosmetic surgeon or the clinic fail to adequately inform the patient of the risks associated with treatment, the patient may be able to make a compensation claim. Claims can be made for:

  • Allergic reactions
  • Side-effects of treatment that were not adequately explained prior to the procedure

What can be claimed for?

Patients can claim compensation for the following:

  • Physical effects

Including lumps and bumps from incorrect placement of dermal fillers and allergic reactions

  • Psychological effects

As dermal fillers are usually injected on the face, procedural errors may impact on the self-esteem of an individual, affecting their mental health and self-confidence

  • Costs of restorative medical surgery
