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.

We worked with the team at Garling & Co for almost 6 years on a compensation claim for our daughter. Every member of the Garling team is professional, prompt and responsive. They were always... available to answer our queries or concerns and made the entire, lengthy process as stress-free as possible. They exceeded our expectations and we highly recommend their team and would not hesitate in using their services again in the future.read more

Matthew Garling was not only professional, but a real people person. I always felt that he was being straightforward, honest and realistic with me, although in the end he negotiated a better outcome... than I had ever expected at the outset. Before meeting Matthew I had interviews with two other firms but didn't like either of them. So glad I chose Garling & Co!read more
