Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors Warn of Potential Risks Posed by Dermal Fillers
Date:7/15/2013

MANCHESTER, England, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors, who work on a no win no fee basis, is warning of the risks and side effects associated with dermal fillers going wrong which account for one in ten of all enquiries received from dissatisfied patients seeking compensation.

The Manchester based law firm, the first to establish a practice specialising in cosmetic surgery negligence, was featured on ITV programme 'Tonight: The Real  Cost of Beauty' disclosing that 10 per cent of cosmetic surgery claim enquiries relate to instances of dermal fillers that have gone wrong.

The TV documentary featured a number of patients where dermal fillers did go wrong, including 35 year old Jo Sandford who suffered a life-threatening infection after having permanent fillers injected into her cheeks.

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors has seen a particularly significant increase in patient enquiries seeking claims for dermal fillers gone wrong  in the last 12 months consistent with a recently published Government report which described them as a 'crisis waiting to happen'.

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors report that common illustrations encountered of dermal fillers gone wrong include gross infection, pronounced facial swelling, bruising, nerve damage, blurred vision, facial collapse, migration of the product, necrosis - when the skin 'dies' and in extreme cases, blindness.

Commenting on the issues raised in the program, Mike Saul, Partner and Head of Cosmetic Negligence Claims for Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors said: "In line with the instances of dermal fillers going wrong and implications we highlighted in the documentary, we encounter an increasing number of patients seeking compensation following the administer of dermal fillers.

"At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors we witness first-hand the crushing effect that dermal fillers going wrong can have on people's lives which often require prolonged and expensive corrective treatment. One current case we handle is for a patient who went blind in one eye immediately after being injected with a dermal filler.

"We have an unrivalled reputation for handling dermal fillers claims and achieving the best possible outcome for our clients through what is often a very traumatic and emotional experience for them to deal with.

"The prevalence of unsatisfactory dermal filler procedures is explained by the unregulated nature of the cosmetic surgery industry which enables far too many untrained practitioners to currently provide substandard treatment - often using dangerous substances.

"With so many pitfalls and dangers associated with this type of treatment I'd urge patients considering dermal fillers to ensure they seek treatment from an established, experienced and reputable practitioner."

A recent survey of The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) members revealed that more than two thirds (69%) of surgeons encountered patients suffering complications from temporary fillers, whilst nearly half (49%) of surgeons saw problems with semi-or permanent fillers. Out of those patients who suffered problems with permanent substances, nearly nine out of ten (84%) required corrective surgery or were deemed untreatable due to the damage caused when dermal fillers have gone wrong.
