Breast Implant Compensation Claims
Breast Augmentation is a cosmetic surgical procedure to change the size, shape and texture of a women’s breast(s).
It can also be used as a primary method to reconstruct a breast(s) post cancerous surgery.
The breast implants can be made of different materials, the main materials used are saline and silicone.
Breast Augmentation surgery is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures in the UK, standards are generally very high. However, like all surgery, there are inherent risks.
The Surgeon should explain the risks and potential complications associated with the surgery before you proceed, if they did not then they may have been negligent, if you suffered injury, complication or an undesired effect.
The most common complications which seem to occur arising from this type of surgery are:
- Hematoma (post-operative bleeding)
- Seroma (fluid accumulation)
- Incision site breakdown (wound infection)
- Breast pains and altered sensation
- Severe visible wrinkling
- Sudden rupture
- Problems with nipples
- Capsular Contracture
If you consider that you have been let down and suffered injury and emotional distress as a result of a failed and negligent breast augmentation operation, you may have a claim for compensation and other losses.
