Breast augmentation is a medical prosthesis used to augment, reconstruct, or create the physical form of breasts. According to the NHS it is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the UK today, with an estimated 8000 woman a year having breast implants.
The majority of these breast implant procedures occur without incident. However, if you believe you have suffered negligent treatment during or after your breast implants then you may be able to make a breast implant compensation claim.
Potential risk of negligence
If the breasts are uneven in appearance in terms of size, shape or breast level. Additional surgery may be needed as a result of complications such as capsular contracture or hardening of the scar capsule around the implant. Bleeding into the breast tissue can cause swollen, painful breasts. Reduction/loss of nipple sensation is also a risk. Visible implants can cause creasing or rippling of the breast. While the above are all widely acknowledged as potential risks poor management of these complications can give grounds for a claim for compensation.
Also known as: Boob job or breast implants
