Following on from earlier rhinoplasty and nose-job successes (including a botched rhinoplasty claim that was settled out of court in 2016, details of which can be found here) cosmetic surgery lawyer Oliver Thorne has now recovered compensation totaling £30,000 plus costs for another victim of a negligent rhinoplasty procedure.
