Botox/Dermal Fillers Compensation Claims


According to the Independent Healthcare Advisory Service (IHAS), about 200,000 anti-wrinkle injections, which includes Botox and dermal fillers, are carried out in the UK each year.


Botox also known as Dysport and Dermal fillers are often used together to achieve the best results for individuals but what is the difference between the two?


  • Botox(Dysport) is often used to treat wrinkles around the eye and forehead. Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles or by blocking certain nerves. The effects last about three to four months.
  • Dermal fillers are used to plump facial features like the lips, cheeks and chins that may have sagged due to ageing. Chemical substances are injected into the skin. Those substances attract water to the area and some also encourage collagen formation which then leads to the ‘plumping effect’ being achieved.


Common Risks & Side Effects


With any surgical procedure there are risks. Sometimes poor management of these risks can give individuals potential grounds for a claim for compensation. Common risks and side effects include:


  • Bruising
  • Bleeding
  • Itching
  • Skin discoloration
  • Viral and bacterial infection
  • Redness and swelling at the site of injection
  • Allergic reactions, lumps under the skin
  • Skin ulceration in the injected part
  • Drooping or muscle weakness
  • Inability  to blink where too much Botox has been injected into the eyelid area
  • Drooling where Botox has been injected around the mouth area
  • Flu Like symptoms
  • Headaches
  • Stomach upsets


With all cosmetic surgery procedures there are risks. However, these risks should be managed and minimised. If problems arise because of poor management of these risks, you may have grounds to claim for compensation.


If you have suffered from any of the above issues or if you are suffering any other problems after undergoing botox or dermal fillers, contact our specialist team and they will be able to talk to you about your issues and discuss if you have a claim for compensation.


What can I claim for?


As well as claiming for any pain, suffering and inconvenience, you may be able to claim back additional costs such as:


  • Remedial surgery – if you have to have your surgery corrected, the additional cost involved could form part of the claim against the surgeon or company that carried out the original operation


  • Loss of income – if you need to take additional days off work or you are unable to go back to work due to the negligence of the surgeon or company carrying out the procedure, your loss of income will form part of your claim.
