Breast Fat Transfer Claims

Anti-ageing Breast Fat Transfer Surgery

Anti-ageing cosmetic procedures continue to prove very popular among women and men and fat transfer, including breast fat transfer, is in the top ten of most common cosmetic procedures performed in the UK each year. For women who feel that their breast size and shape has affected their body confidence due to drooping or smaller than average breasts, breast fat transfer or lipofilling is sometimes used as an alternative to breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgery.

Anti-ageing cosmetic procedures continue to prove very popular among women and men and fat transfer, including breast fat transfer, is in the top ten of most common cosmetic procedures performed in the UK each year. For women who feel that their breast size and shape has affected their body confidence due to drooping or smaller than average breasts, breast fat transfer or lipofilling is sometimes used as an alternative to breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgery.

Breast fat transfer is becoming more and more common as it is a minimally invasive procedure which eliminates the need for breast implants. However the increasing number of breast fat transfers has been accompanied by an increased number of instances of lipofilling negligence.

Substantial compensation can be awarded if an error has been made by your cosmetic surgeon. A firm of cosmetic surgery solicitors can make a breast surgery negligence claim for you and help you move past the physical and psychological damage a bad breast surgery creates.

Popularity of Breast Fat Transfers Rises in the UK

Breast cosmetic surgery is by far the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the UK on an annual basis. According to the Department of Health, 30,000 breast implant procedures are performed per year.

As an alternative to breast implant surgery, breast fat transfer is also becoming more popular with lipofilling procedures up nearly 15% last year according to figures from the largest industry body, the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPs) and finishing eight in the list of most common cosmetic procedures.

Despite the popularity of breast fat transfers, the instances when lipofilling has gone wrong have increased substantially. Help yourself by speaking today to our Head of Cosmetic Negligence Claims, Michael Saul, on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of the Cosmetic Claims team. Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors are the first law firm in England and Wales dedicated primarily to victims of negligent cosmetic surgery. We understand how devastating the consequences of bad fat transfers can be for the patient and we want to help.

Breast Fat Transfer – the Cosmetic Procedure

A fat transfer breast augmentation, a form of fat grafting, is performed to enhance both a patient’s breast shape and breast size either for breast reconstruction or breast enlargement purposes. Small incisions are made in different parts of the patient’s body, usually the thighs, belly or buttocks from where the cosmetic surgeon takes fat tissue using a low pressure liposuction technique. The fat tissue is then processed into liquid and the filtered fat is injected into the breasts to increase breast size or reconstruct breast volume.

A breast fat transfer treatment is minimally invasive and normally takes less than an hour to perform. The cosmetic surgeon uses a local anaesthetic, making the recovery generally quicker than breast implant surgery and no overnight hospital stay is required.

Breast fat transfers can be of real benefit to patients with the results sometimes causing an upsurge in self-confidence, one of the reasons perhaps it’s such a popular breast cosmetic procedure.

However negligent breast fat transfers can conversely leave patients with real physical and psychological damage and when breast fat transfer procedures have gone wrong, you can be left sore, depressed and in pain. Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors are handling a growing number of cases of breast fat transfers going wrong where breast surgery claims should be made due to a negligent cosmetic surgeon.

Breast Fat Transfer Surgery Gone Wrong

Following a lipofilling procedure, post-operative pain, bruising and swelling are normal for several days after the breast fat transfer.

Even with a successful breast cosmetic procedure of this type, significant amounts of fat may be absorbed by the body following a fat transfer surgery procedure and some patients may require further breast fat transfer treatment.

When breast fat transfers go wrong however there are considerable costs for the patient. Negligent breast surgery can provoke strong emotions which may include feeling that your breasts do not look as you expected them to or being disappointed with the general reaction to your ‘new’ breasts. However the physical consequences can be even harsher. Some of the most common indications that a bad lipofilling procedure may have occurred are:

  • Asymmetry disfigurement where the fat transfer leaves the breast skin area unequal in shape
  • Fat necrosis (where the skin cells die) with lumps under the skin
  • Overfilling where too much fat is injected into the breasts and gradually the fat grafted can grow, resulting in distortion of the breasts.
  • Unsightly scarring, bruising and saggy skin as a result of the surgery
  • Blood clotting can occur – however this is rare.

These are all clear signs that your lipofilling has gone wrong and that a breast fat transfer claim needs to be made.

If there is breast surgery negligence, it starts with the surgeon, the clinic and the procedure chosen. At Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors we are experts in the breast fat transfer claims process.
