What Are the Signs That My Breast Implant Revision Has Gone Wrong?
Problems that can indicate negligence are broadly the same as with breast enlargement surgery and include:
- Ptosis or breast sagging
- Slippage or movement of the breast implant
- Lopsided or different sized breasts
- Uneven position of nipples
- Problems with implant placement or the creation of the ‘pockets’ for the implants, causing one or both implants to sit too high, too low or you experience lateral displacement
- Unsightly scarring, above or below the fold beneath the breast
- Symmastia or uni-boob – implants crossing over in the centre of the chest
- “Double-bubble” or “cottage loaf” effect – where the breast has a double instead of single mound appearance
- “Bottoming out” – this occurs when the implant falls to the bottom of the breast

What is the Process of Making a Claim?
The first step in making a breast implant revision claim is to get in touch with us to discuss your unique circumstances. We will assess your case to determine whether you are eligible to make a claim. If you are eligible and you wish to proceed with us, then we will arrange for a specialist, independent plastic surgeon to meet with you to prepare a report on your surgery.
Once this report is created, we will use it to determine how much compensation you could secure from making a breast implant revision claim. We will then assign a dedicated solicitor to your case who will be with you every step of the way.
The report will also allow us to determine whether we will send a Letter of Claim over to the negligent surgeon or their insurers. This Letter of Claim is the recipient's opportunity to accept the blame for your injuries - they have up to four months to respond to this. The next stage is normally to commence court proceedings.
You can find out more about this with our guide on the claims process.
How Long Will the Claims Process Take?
As soon as you start your claim with us, your dedicated lawyer will be on hand to support you with whatever questions or concerns you may have about your breast implant revision compensation. This includes giving you an estimate of how long the claims process will take, taking into consideration your unique circumstances. We promise to keep you fully informed at every step of the legal process.

How Much Compensation Could You Get?
The amount of compensation you could get for making a breast implant revision claim will depend upon the unique circumstances of your situation. The outcome of a breast implant revision surgery gone wrong can differ for each individual affected, as there is a broad range of issues that can occur.
When calculating how much compensation you could get, there are many different aspects to consider, including the extent of the physical and/or psychological damage and any losses you have incurred as the result of the botched surgery. As a rough guide, breast implant revision compensation amounts can go up to £50,000.
Is There a Time Limit on Making a Breast Implant Revision Claim?
Generally, you will have up to three years to make a claim for compensation. This time limit begins from when you had the surgery or from the date on which you realised (or ought to have realised) the breast implant revision had gone wrong.
If you feel that your surgery has gone wrong then we would strongly urge you to get in touch with our team of solicitors today to start the claims process.
