A cosmetic surgeon is being sued by a former patient after she claims she was left with a disfigured face following filler injection treatment. Failure to record a detailed medical history of the patient meant that she had an allergic reaction to the filler treatment and required numerous visits to the hospital to try and rectify the facial disfigurement caused by the procedure.
After her surgeon administered the filler, very quickly the patient started to feel a burning sensation down her cheek and neck as it was being injected into her face. Her face started to swell up and she knew that something wasn’t right following the treatment.
The General Medical Council investigated the case and issued a warning to the surgeon reporting that he failed to record the patient’s full medical history which included her history of allergies and also his examination findings and as a consequence of this the patient had a bad reaction to the filler treatment and needed 5 operations in hospital to undo the damage done from the injections.
She claims she has sustained a nasty scar on her cheek and also has a droopy eyelid and lip which has left her facially disfigured and with slurred speech. The procedure has caused her considerable pain and discomfort including multiple trips to hospital for operations to repair the damage and has also had a significant emotional impact causing a great deal of stress and loss of confidence.
The surgeon commented: ‘The unfortunate incident occurred over three years ago and since then, our clinical documentation procedures have been revised.
