There are many personal injury claims filed by patients who have gravely suffered at the hands of inexperienced cosmetic surgeons.

Cosmetic treatments of any kind are clearly dangerous and sometimes life-threatening in the case of former Miss Argentina Solange Magnano who died after a legal operation involving buttock implants and injections. People tend to ignore the potential dangers involved in getting a tummy tuck or having buttock implants to that of a kidney stone operation, whichmight be needed medically. Not all cosmetic treatments tend to go right but when things start to go wrong a person can transform drastically from looking normal to ending up extremely disfigured or even dead. Although you might be able to make personal injury claims but the disfiguration is permanent and cannot be reversed. Cosmetic treatments range from facelifts, cheek implants, nose job to breast & buttock implants, tummy tuck and much more.

Common favourites at many salons include microdermabrasion and glycolic acid peels that might not actually be as beneficial as thought before. Microdermabrasion exfoliates the skin to remove fine lines, clear skin and remove any signs of ageing. Whereas glycolic acid peels gently removes the top layers of the skin and stimulate collagen production in order to make the new skin supple. However, claims from many women who have undergone these cosmetic treatments speak of its ‘charms’ otherwise. Instead of making their skin look younger and brighter, it has thinned their skin and caused it to blacken. Such cosmetic treatments have a reverse effect and those who are hooked on them experience broken veins, uneven lined skin, acne and dark pigmentation spots over time. This might be a good time to consider making any personal injury claims.

Another popular cosmetic treatment application is hair dye, millions of women regularly dye their hair and the market for such products is worth £175m in the UK alone. However, over the years, hair dyes have been associated with cancer but there isn’t strong evidence to prove this myth. The highest risks involved dying your hair involves dark-coloured, permanent dyes, whichareused every four to six weeks. On the other hand, certain studies have found traces of PPD or para-Phenylenediamine in dark hair dyes. It has been reported that can be carcinogenic over long-term application combined with hydrogen peroxide. Other researchers have linked the chemicals found in hair dyes damage the immune system and trigger rheumatoid arthritis.

Various other cosmetic treatments can cause serious damage to internal organs as well as external features of a person. It is crucial to re-consider your decision for undergoing any cosmetic surgery or treatment in the hopes of enhancing your appearance.

Many cosmetic clinics will insistyou sign a disclaimer, but if there is clear evidence of negligence then a solid claim will bear fruit.
