Otoplasty Surgery Gone Wrong?
Otoplasty is an umbrella term which refers to cosmetic surgery of the ear, in all its different forms. It covers everything from the reshaping and resizing of the outer ear to the pinning of protruding ears closer to the head.
Big, misshapen, or very protruding ears can seriously damage a person’s confidence. Indeed, otoplasty (and particularly pinnaplasty, where the ears are pinned back) is unusual in that it is a form of cosmetic surgery frequently performed on children, often before they reach school age, to try and prevent playground bullying in later life. Many adults opt for this and other forms of otoplasty too, for many different reasons.
When we make the decision to go in for otoplasty we naturally expect that we will be expertly looked after before, during and after the procedure. Although this is true in the majority of cases, sadly negligence during otoplasty and other cosmetic procedures does happen. Cosmetic surgeons, just like other medical professionals, have a duty of care towards you and if they fail in their duty, leaving you suffering as a result, then you could be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
If you or your loved one has suffered as a result of otoplasty gone wrong and you’d like to discuss your individual case, give our knowledgeable and experienced medical negligence solicitors a call today on 0800 122 3130 or arrange a free call back that’s convenient for you.
