Breast Enlargement Surgery Has Gone Wrong, Make a Claim

A Breast Enlargement is the most popular surgery for UK women.

Most cosmetic clinical procedures including breast enlargement surgery are carried out successfully in the UK but inevitably there are times when surgery goes wrong. When that happens and when the cosmetic surgeon or clinic is responsible for an error in procedure, then a law firm can make a breast surgery medical negligence compensation claim. If an award is made to the patient, compensation can include damages for physical and psychological injury and restorative medical surgery.

Breast Enlargement Surgery More and More Popular for UK Women

Despite adverse economic conditions over the past few years, the cosmetic surgery industry in the UK continues to expand with almost 100,000 customers last year. According to the Department of Health, 30,000 of those cosmetic surgeries were breast enlargement procedures.

That makes breast enlargement cosmetic surgery, also referred to as breast augmentation or breast implant surgery the most popular cosmetic surgery performed in the UK by some distance.

The numbers of breast enlargement operations are increasing substantially every year and so are the claims for cosmetic surgery negligence. Michael Saul and the team at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors now deal with an upsurge in the total cases where breast enlargement surgery has gone wrong and due to the clinic’s or surgeon’s negligence, breast enlargement claims have had to be made.

Should you feel your medical procedure has gone wrong, to make a breast enlargement claim, please call us on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back so you can understand more about what your legal rights are in this situation.

What Happens When Your Breast Enlargement Goes Wrong in an inadequately regulated Industry?

Duty of care in the Cosmetic Surgery Industry

When it comes to cosmetic procedures like breast enlargement surgery and non-invasive beauty treatments, all surgeons and beauty therapists have a duty of care to you. This duty is something to which surgeons must be held accountable as cosmetic surgery negligence can cause long-lasting physical and psychological damage. Beauty treatments such as dermal fillers also have to be held to the same high safety standards.

Making a claim for breast enlargements that have gone wrong, starts with calling Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors the UK’s leading law firm in Cosmetic Negligence.

Michael Saul and his team are here to lead you through the claims process and answer any questions you have.

Why is Breast Enlargement Surgery Number One?

Cosmetic surgery patients make the decision to undergo breast enlargement surgery for many reasons but from the many years’ experience in cosmetic surgery legal team, it’s apparent that most women choose breast enlargement surgery for:

  • The restoration of breast symmetry when the patient’s breasts are uneven or asymmetrical.
  • The reconstruction of breast(s) for medical reasons such as after a breast cancer mastectomy or another illness or experience that impacted on the breast size and shape.
  • The renewal of breast shape and size and after significant weight loss, pregnancy or breastfeeding. Often done in conjunction with a breast uplift or mastopexy, the breast enlargement restores volume while the breast uplift tightens the surplus skin in the breast while at the same time lifting the nipple position.
  • The enlargement of naturally small breasts to create fuller breasts.

The Facts about Breast Enlargement Surgery

During surgery to enlarge the breasts (augmentation mammoplasty), an implant is placed under the breast tissue or under the chest muscle beneath the breast.

Two types of breast implants are typically used in breast enlargement surgery. Both saline implants and silicone implants are used in breast cosmetic procedures while silicone is more commonly used than saline.

To position the breast implant, an incision is made in the bottom crease of the breast (Inframammary incision), the armpit (transaxillary incision), or inside the umbilicus or belly button (TUBA incision). The breast implant is then inserted through the incision and placed under either the breast tissue or the chest muscle beneath the breast.

After the implant has been carefully adjusted to the correct shape and position, the incision is closed with stitches.

If you feel your breast enlargement surgery hasn’t worked as you expected it to, talk to Michael Saul at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 or start a cosmetic surgery claim or request a call back from his group of experienced claims solicitors.

What To Expect After Breast Enlargement Surgery

Breast enlargement surgery is an invasive procedure usually done under general anaesthetic and most women have some swelling, bruising, and soreness in their breasts for several days after the procedure. The swelling and bruising may in fact last for several weeks after a cosmetic breast procedure.

As the swelling subsides and the scars start to fade, the patient will have a clearer idea of whether the procedure has in fact been successful.

Any surgery can be unsuccessful but if you feel there has been medical negligence during your breast enlargement, contact Michael Saul or his experienced team at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors on 0800 634 0285.

What you Don’t Want after Breast Enlargement Surgery

It can be clear very quickly that your breast enlargement surgery has gone wrong. There are some strong indications that there has been medical negligence in your case. Remember that your surgeon is responsible for preventing those things that can be reasonably preventable. He is also responsible for telling you about the complications that cannot be prevented.

If you feel that your cosmetic surgeon has been medically negligent then talk to Michael Saul at Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back to discuss a potential claim in more detail.

Breast Enlargement Negligence Indications

Breast enlargement negligence can leave the patient with physical and psychological damage in the form of soreness, pain and depression.  There are clear signs that your operation has gone wrong.

  • Considerable differences in the size or shape of the breasts after surgery
  • Changes in the implant. Normal activity or an injury to the breast can damage the implant, causing it to leak, deflate, or rupture. Over time, the implant may harden, develop ripples, shift position, or change shape. Surgery may be needed to remove the implant and replace it (if desired) if any of these changes occur. An implant can slip out of place. This can happen if the surgeon makes too big a pocket and allows the implant to slide around in the breast tissue. It can happen right after having breast implant surgery or many months later. The breast implant can travel up to the axilla or below the inframammary crease. It can migrate past the midline toward the other breast.
  • You can also get a condition known as symmastia, commonly known as a “uni-boob”. It happens when the surgeon makes pockets for your implants that are too close together. The breasts can end up touching in the middle, which is an unsightly complication. It usually is seen several days after the surgery is over with and needs a revision to make it look normal again.
  • Your breasts implants can “bottom out”. This happens when the breast implants are placed too low or are too big and they fall, crossing over the inframammary crease. The doctor needs to place the implants in a pocket high enough to prevent bottoming out of the breast implant, which usually sags due to gravity.
