Breast Implants Claims
Breast implants, also known as a boob job or breast augmentation, are when you have surgery to change the shape and/or increase the size of your 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.
Happily 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.
What can go wrong with breast implants?
There are a number of things that may have gone wrong with your breast implants. These are all recognized risks, but sometimes poor management of these complications can give grounds for a claim for compensation:
- Capsular Contracture – when the layer of scar tissue that the body normally grows around the implant contracts, resulting in the implant being an odd shape or being hard. This can be painful and you may need to have the implant removed and replaced
- Bleeding into the breast tissue causing swollen, painful breasts
- Infection, which can result in unsightly scarring after the operation
- Reduction/loss of nipple sensation
- Visible implants – causing creasing or rippling of the breast
Can I make a claim if my breast implants have gone wrong?
