TTHE CLAIMS PROCESS EXPLAINED
HOW CAN BREAST ENLARGEMENT GO WRONG?
Most breast augmentation surgeries are carried out successfully and the patient is happy with their results, but inevitably there are times when procedures go wrong.
There are a wide range of physical issues that negligence can cause. We have successfully helped patients claim compensation for the below issues following breast enlargement surgery:
- Sagging breasts (ptosis)
- Ruptured or leaking breast implants
- Slippage or movement of the implants
- Lopsided or different sized breasts
- Uneven nipple positions
- Unsightly scarring
- Breasts sitting too high, low, or wide
- Implants too close together (symmastia - commonly known as ‘uni-boob’)
- ‘Double bubble’ or ‘cottage loaf’ effect where breasts have a double mound
- ‘Bottoming out’ where implants fall to the bottom of the breasts
- Infection resulting in the implant having to be taken out for treatment
- Loss of sensation in the breast skin and nipple
- Leaking implants
- Abnormal scarring (capsular contracture) forming around the implant
- Visible implants - seeing creasing or ripples from the implants through the breast skin
- Damaged breast tissue
The above physical effects can trigger a negative emotional response, which can lead to:
- Feeling disappointed that the surgery failed to achieve the effect the patient desired
- The breasts not looking the way the patient expected them to
- Depression as a result of unsuccessful surgery

How can we help?
When a surgeon or clinic is responsible for breast augmentation going wrong, a claim can be made. Compensation could include damages for physical and psychological injury as well as restorative surgery.
The cosmetic surgery industry is inadequately and inconsistently regulated, which can make it hard to understand your legal position or know where to turn - but that’s where Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors can help you.
Our expert team has an impressive win rate of 95% and to date, we have successfully recovered more than £4 million for our clients. We will take the time to fully understand the impact caused by the negligence you may have experienced and guide you through the complicated process of claiming the breast implant compensation you deserve.
THE DUTY OF CARE FOR CLINICS AND SURGEONS
Those who carry out cosmetic surgery procedures and beauty treatments have a duty of care to ensure your safety and wellbeing. Surgeons must be held accountable to this duty, as cosmetic surgery negligence can cause long-lasting physical and psychological damage.
The clinic/surgeon is not only responsible for preventing things that can be reasonably preventable, but also for telling you about the complications that cannot be prevented.
