Lip enhancing treatments carried out by unregistered practitioners in a bid to save money, can lead to infections, tissue dying and disfigurement.
Unregulated, cheap products used by those administering second-tier treatments, unhygienic environments in which they are administered, syringe-sharing for cost-minimisation and poor aftercare are all amongst the causes of infections and permanent medical damage.
Many celebrity doctors have also warned that these procedures can lead to allergies and disfigurement. For example, Dr. Esho, of Channel 4’s Body Fixers, has recently shared a video of a woman with leaking lips as a result of a cut-price procedure.
There have been many other cases where ‘cheap fillers’ have caused permanent damage. The importance to seek a medical professional is not only vital for the treatment, but also to recognise any medical problems. It is essential to use a registered medical professional and visit a clinical environment for any treatment. You should also check that the practitioner is insured and have follow-up appointments to ensure aftercare.
However, if you have unfortunately suffered an injury from a beauty treatment involving lip fillers, you may be entitled to make a No Win No Fee compensation claim. We act for a number of clients who have suffered similar injuries and it is important that you get independent, expert legal advice preferably as soon as possible, from our specialist lawyers.
