When does breast surgery become a medical negligence claim?

In the majority, whether you’re undergoing breast surgery for health or cosmetic reasons, surgery goes well, and you get the results you were expecting.

However, there are occasions when mistakes are made which causes pain and suffering and sometimes has life-changing consequences. If you’ve received a poor standard of care which has caused you harm, you may be entitled to claim compensation for breast surgery negligence.

What’s the most common type of negligent breast surgery?

Medical professionals can make mistakes in all types of breast surgery. Our experts have helped many patients who’ve suffered medical negligence as a result of all types of breast surgery, including:

  • Breast augmentations
  • Breast reductions
  • Breast uplifts / mastopexy
  • Breast reconstructions
  • Breast implants

What type of mistakes cause medical negligence in breast surgery?

There are a number of mistakes which can lead to negligent breast surgery, such as:

  • A surgical error during surgery
  • Administering an incorrect dosage of anaesthetic
  • Using faulty equipment, including damaged implants
  • Failing to take a full medical history

It’s not only during surgery that negligence can take place. Mistakes made during the recovery period can be just as damaging for the patient, such as failing to notice that a patient is developing an infection.
