Compensation for errors made during Otoplasty

 Although there are normally parts of our bodies that we aren’t happy with, the ears are not usually one of them. As a part that we can’t directly see, they generally aren’t an area that we want to improve, but unfortunately for some people either the large size of their ears or the fact that they stick out can lead to being a cause for concern and can leave a person feeling down in terms of their self-esteem.

For people that do suffer from problems of this type, one popular technique that they might choose to undertake is otoplasty, and this is a procedure which involves the re-shaping of the ears to make them into a more desired shape and size, and even in some cases to improve hearing in the individual.

Although this is generally a safe technique, as with any procedure there is the potential for accidents to happen and injuries to occur. If you do find yourself in this situation, then you could consider a claim for compensation.

What is Otoplasty?

Otoplasty is the technique that is used to re-shape and re-size the ear in accordance with what the patient is looking for. This is usually done for two reasons, either for medical reasons (perhaps the patient can’t hear well) or alternately for cosmetic reasons (the patient is unhappy with the way that their ears look), either way the surgery is relatively invasive and requires great skill and precision – any mistakes can leave the patient with serious injuries.

Where could I consider making a compensation claim?

You could look to make a claim in any situation where you feel that you have been the victim of negligence, some common examples of where this might occur include:

Errors made during a surgical procedure

Injuries sustained to surrounding tissue

A loss of hearing after the operation

Errors made throughout the rehabilitation process

Errors made in the initial consultation.
