Many people undergo nose surgery - either due to injury, health or cosmetic reasons - and, as with all types of surgery, there is always the risk that something could go wrong. Any mistakes made during this type of surgery can be particularly serious given the importance of the nose, both in the functions it performs and its prominence on the face. It is vital for breathing and smelling, and any complications that affect its ability to perform these functions can be very damaging. Also, any unwanted alterations to the shape or size of the nose can affect a person's appearance and, as a result, cause significant psychological trauma.
It is therefore vital that if your nose surgery goes wrong that you are able to claim compensation for the harm caused - both physically and psychologically.
Rhinoplasty is a form of surgery performed to the nose and is often referred to as a nose job or nose reshaping. Both men and women often undergo the surgery in order to alter how the bridge, nostrils or tip of the nose look, with many doing so for aesthetic reasons and others doing so for health reasons, such as to improve breathing.
Nose surgery for cosmetic reasons is very popular and most procedures go as planned. However, sometimes things can go wrong and, when they do, it can have very serious consequences, including:
- Nasal collapse, which can involve the caving in of the columella (bridge)
- Breathing difficulties
- Nostrils becoming asymmetrical
- Heavy swelling leading to internal bleeding
- Supra-tip hollowing, which involves saddle deformity at the nose's tip
- Septum damage
- Loss of smell, taste or sense
If you suffer from any of the above, or any other injury following rhinoplasty, you will be able to make a nose surgery compensation claim provided it can be proven that your cosmetic surgeon or a member of their staff acted negligently, and this was the cause of your injury. The team at JMW are here to help prove that this was the case.
