Can I make a cosmetic surgery compensation claim?

Cosmetic surgery is a very personal decision and is one you’ve likely chosen to have performed on your body to make improvements to the way you look or to improve a pre-existing condition. This means that when cosmetic surgery doesn’t go right, it can be incredibly traumatic.

Thousands of Australians have cosmetic surgery procedures performed every year; however it continues to be one of the most unregulated medical industries in the country.

You have may a cosmetic surgery compensation claim if:

  • It can be proved that the surgeon was inexperienced in the procedure and caused your harm
  • There was poor or insufficient preoperative or postoperative planning or communication as part of the procedure
  • The surgical technique was incorrect, and you were required to undergo corrective surgery to fix your surgeon’s mistakes
  • The treatment recommended was incorrectly performed or not appropriate for you and you sustained some harm.
