Compensation for errors made during facial grafting

Facial damage is one of the harshest types of damage that a person can sustain and scarring and long-term injuries can leave a person low on confidence and self-esteem. As your face is one of the most important areas of the body, for many people it can play a crucial role in the way that they feel about themselves and as such any injuries to this area can have a direct impact on a person’s life.

If a person is left with facial injuries after an accident then chances are that you may undertake a facial grafting technique to replace and replenish skin which might have been previously damaged, but as with any type of surgical technique this does have the potential to be dangerous, and if you have been the victim of a mistake or error made during this surgery then you could look to make a compensation claim.

What is facial grafting?

A facial grafting technique usually involves the transferral of skin from one part of the body onto the face to replace skin which has been previously damaged. It can also refer to the technique of taking skin from another person and placing it over the facial area to replenish any skin which has been damaged as the result of an accident or injury – usually burns.

What mistakes can be made during facial grafting?

The facial grafting procedure is incredibly complicated and as a result a number of potential errors can occur. These include:

Mistakes made during the surgical procedure

Mistakes made in the surgical preparation

Infections caused by a negligent surgeon

Injuries sustained through a poor facial grafting technique

Careless rehabilitation after a facial grafting procedure.
