According to the BBC, a new centre for cosmetic surgery research has opened in the UK. Believed to have been funded as a response to the scandal over PIP breast implants, hopes are that the institute will help to lower the prevalence of surgical errors (1).

Criticised by NHS Medical Director, Sir Bruce Keogh, it is believed that not enough research is completed surrounding cosmetic operations (1). With a lack of data highlighted as the reason behind industry failings, such as the PIP scandal, it is believed that the research centre represents a move to rectify such issues.

Despite cosmetic surgery becoming more main-stream, it is believed that the new centre for cosmetic surgery is the first of its kind, worldwide (1).

Believing it will make a difference to the quality of patient care, Sir Bruce Keogh stated the following (1)–

"This joint initiative is the first recommendation of my review to be implemented and I know it will provide a major contribution to patient safety."

Considering the improvements the research centre could introduce, Asons Executive,
Laura Williams –

“Although I was shocked to hear that this research centre is the first of its kind, I firmly believe this is a step in the right direction. As well as helping to avoid incidents of cosmetic surgery negligence, the centre should encourage innovation, improving the procedures currently in use, even pioneering new techniques."

"Often Victims of substandard cosmetic surgery find it difficult to come forward with a claim, because they feel that in choosing to undergo the surgery, they should just accept that complications occur; this should not be the case."

"At Asons Solicitors, we have clients claiming surgery compensation who have suffered due to botched cosmetic surgery; coming forwards, and taking action, can prevent the same situation from reoccurring, helping others to avoid injury in future.”

If you, or someone you know, have suffered as a result of a surgical error, then you may be able to make a claim. Claiming for cosmetic surgery compensation may help you to cover medical costs, loss of earnings and any other financial burdens associated with your recovery.
