A woman has been left with a permanent facial disfigurement after a succession of operations were botched. The 32 year old woman has been left devastated after learning she may never be able to smile again. The patient, who had a face deforming syndrome, was receiving surgery to remove an infection but after an error was made she needed to have a number of corrective operations to improve her appearance. Unfortunately the damage had already been done and further operations failed to rectify the mistake and she is unlikely to regain control of her face.
"It was the worst point in my entire life when I saw what they had done, my face was ruined. They had completely destroyed my chances of smiling again. I physically hated the way my face looked and just wanted to shut the entire world out.”
The woman was awarded a substantial sum in compensation from the Hospital NHS Foundation Trust concerned with her case, after admitting clinical negligence.
