Breast Implant Revision Claims

Compensation for Breast Implant Replacement Negligence

Breast implant cosmetic surgery, also known as breast augmentation or breast enlargement is by far the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the UK with over 30,000 breast enlargement procedures completed every year. Now that many patients are 15 to 25 years past their original breast augmentation, breast revision or breast implant replacement surgery has also become increasingly popular as more and more patients are requesting the removal or exchange of breast implants. This is a trend which is only likely to increase.

While there are huge numbers of breast revision procedures being performed now in the UK, there are also increasing cases where this type of plastic surgery has gone wrong. When a bad breast implant replacement is the result of breast implant revision negligence, it may be possible to make a successful cosmetic surgery claim.

As the first legal practice in England and Wales established to assist patients who’ve suffered negligent cosmetic surgery, we want to help you put things right. Call Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our expert Cosmetic Claims team to start your claim.

Breast Implants Mean Breast Implant Revision Surgery

Breast implant revision surgery is usually performed to change the size or type of a patient’s implants and sometimes to correct any complications from the patient’s primary breast augmentation. There may be many reasons why a patient might want or require breast implant revision but typically a breast implant replacement is undergone due to breast implant scar contraction, the hardening, rupture or deflation of the breast implant, a wish to change from saline to silicone implants or a substantial breast change from pregnancy.

Patients who no longer feel the need for breast implants may also avail of this breast surgery while patients who undergo breast revision may also consider breast surgeries like breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and liposuction.

Have you recently undergone breast revision surgery that you’re not happy with? If you believe that you have had a bad breast implant replacement operation, you could be in line to receive substantial compensation.

Breast Implant Replacement Surgery

Breast implant revision surgery takes about an hour and is usually performed under general anaesthetic. Regardless of the type of breast implant originally inserted in the patient, saline or silicone gel implants may be chosen but silicone breast implants are the most popular implants for a breast augmentation. Read more about the types of breast implants in our guide here.

Normally breast implant replacement uses the same incision as the original breast implants and once the breast implant pocket is exposed, the old breast implant is removed and a new one placed into the same pocket. If a silicone breast implant is substituted for an existing saline breast implant, then the incision may need to be extended to allow easier entry of the silicone breast implant.

When Breast Implant Replacement Goes Wrong

Complications from removing and replacing breast implants are not particularly common but every surgical procedure has risks, and breast implant replacement surgery is no exception to the rule.

If there is cosmetic surgery negligence during a breast implant revision procedure, common problems which can indicate the occurrence of breast implant replacement negligence are:

  • Breast sagging or ptosis
  • Lopsided or different sized breasts (asymmetry).
  • Inappropriate or unsightly scarring, above or below the fold beneath the breast.
  • Implants crossing over in the centre of the chest (Symmastia or uni-boob)
  • “Double-bubble” or “cottage loaf” effect, where the breast has a double instead of single mound appearance.
  • “Bottoming out” – this is a problem which occurs when the implant falls to the bottom of the breast.

If these or any problems of bad breast implant replacement surgery have happened to you, speak to Cosmetic Solicitors on 0800 634 0285 and let us help you start a claim for financial compensation.
