What are Body Modifications?

Body modifications are defined as the deliberate alteration of the human body. Individuals may choose to modify their bodies as an artistic expression of their individuality with either aesthetic, sexual, or religious pretences.

Body modifications are rooted in long-standing tribal traditions form across the globe but have become more popular in recent years amongst those looking to change the way their body looks and/or accessorise what they already have.



What are the Most Common Kinds of Body Modifications?

The most common types of modifications are piercings, tattoos, permanent make-up, sub-dermal implants, and scarification. Each method of body modification can create a unique addition to an individual’s body.

Can I Make a Claim?

It may be that the results were not what you were expecting nor discussed or agreed in the consultation, or you were not properly advised about the risks of an undesirable outcome.

Cosmetic procedures are supposed to make you feel better, happier and leave you feeling more confident. If you decide to part with your hard-earned money to have any cosmetic treatment undertaken, you must place all of your trust in the clinician or surgeon chosen and assume that they will exercise their duty of care to you and perform the procedure to a high standard. Unfortunately, this does not always take place.

If the clinician or surgeon has been negligent, you could be left with painful, long term or even permanent injuries or disfigurements. In some situations, there could have been additional complications resulting in significant adverse effects on your confidence and appearance.

If you’ve had cosmetic surgery and you believe that the procedure went wrong, we understand that you may be left suffering physical and emotional pain.
