Using dermal filler to temporarily change the shape of your nose is a popular cosmetic procedure, but is not without risks. In fact, research suggests that as many as 1 in 20 people experience negative side effects after receiving a cosmetic treatment using injections of dermal filler.
Also known as a ‘non-surgical rhinoplasty’ or ‘non-surgical nose job’, there are a number of common problems that can result if the procedure is carried out poorly. These can include allergic reactions, bruising, pain and tenderness (which tend to be short-term issues), as well as more serious health consequences, such as tissue death (necrosis) and blindness, which can result in a lifelong impact on your health and wellbeing.
These more severe problems can occur when filler is accidentally injected into a blood vessel, cutting off the blood supply to the surrounding area. Unfortunately, given that around 8 in 10 procedures are carried out by non-medical practitioners, these types of errors are always a risk.
If you have experienced negative side-effects from negligent nose contouring with dermal filler, you may be entitled to compensation. The damages you can potentially receive can be significant, especially for the most serious issues, such as necrosis and blindness.
This compensation can be essential if you need to pay for further cosmetic surgery to correct poorly carried out dermal injects, as well as covering lost wages if you need to take time off work and other expenses you have incurred. It can also go some way towards making amends for your pain and emotional distress.
