Cosmetic surgery or procedures such as laser treatment or waxings can be an incredibly gratifying experience for you. However, when neglectful or reckless practices end up hurting you during and after your cosmetic surgery, waxing, or laser procedure, you may be suffering the consequences for a long time. Due to the nature of cosmetic surgery, many victims of cosmetic surgery injuries and scarring find themselves permanently disfigured from their injuries.
No matter what type of cosmetic injury you have sustained, disfigurement can occur. Disfigurement is essentially a deformity or scar that occurs due to an injury that can affect a person’s appearance. Because of the permanent nature of disfigurement, you can claim it as a damage, among others, in a personal injury case.

How Much Compensation Can I Get for My Disfigurement Damages?
Becoming disfigured and scarred is generally considered a non-economic damage. What this means is that your disfigurement and scarring hasn’t directly affected your pocketbook through lost wages or medical expenses. However, just because it hasn’t affected your wallet, does not mean it can’t affect you in other ways. Becoming disfigured or scarred can weigh heavily on your mind and confidence. This can create a slew of mental and emotional problems. With the help of a cosmetic injury lawyer, you can get back damages for your disfigurement and scars. We can help you prove negligence in your case and can also work to prove the mental and emotional suffering you have endured as a result of your disfigurement.
Why Do These Types of Injuries Happen?
Cosmetic surgery and procedure injuries that lead to permanent disfigurement and scars are often caused by negligent surgeons and their actions during surgery.
