Breast surgery injury compensation claims

Breast surgery injury compensation claims

Breast augmentation surgery, often known as a ‘boob job,’ is one of the most common cosmetic surgery procedures. It consists of inserting an agreed-sized implant through a small incision made in the natural crease of the breast. There are risks with all surgical procedures and the majority of breast implant surgery occurs without incident.

However, if you have been unfortunate enough to have suffered negligent breast surgery, or undergone complications with your breast enlargement, you may be entitled to claim compensation.

PR Scully is a team of medical negligence solicitors who operate on a no-win no-fee basis. It’s crucial to use a special medical negligence solicitor and specialist personal injury solicitors to get the best compensation claim.

Breast augmentation surgery

There are several recognised risks with breast augmentation surgery. Sometimes poor and inefficient management of these risks can lead to injury and serious health risks. This can provide potential grounds to claim compensation.

The Risks

  • Pain
  • Bleeding or Haematoma
  • Infection
  • Scar tissue or scarring/abnormal scarring/excessive scarring
  • Altered nipple sensation
  • Asymmetry/Symmastia (uneven breasts/nipples)
  • Visible Capsule and capsular contracture (a normal part of the healing process, but one that can be aesthetically hidden with the best treatment)
  • Breast implant rupture or a ruptured implant beyond surgery
  • Seroma (accumulation of fluid under the skin)
  • Silicone gel implants bleed/Migration and granulomas (internal bleeding from a ruptured implant)

With all cosmetic surgery procedures, there are risks. However, these risks should be managed and minimised. If problems arise because of poor management of these risks, individuals may have grounds to claim compensation.

Medical Negligence Claims

If the risks discussed are ignored or incurred due to faulty medical equipment or surgical negligence, or anything else that constitutes medical negligence, you may also be eligible for a negligent treatment compensation claim.

Making a breast surgery compensation claim

If unfortunately you have suffered any of the above issues, or are suffering from any other after undergoing breast augmentation surgery, contact our all-female specialist team who will be able to talk to you about your issues and discuss if you have a compensation claim.

As well as claiming pain, suffering and inconvenience, you may be able to claim compensation on additional costs too, such as:

  • Remedial Surgery – if you have to have corrective surgery or further surgery, the additional cost could form part of the claim against the surgeon or medical professionals who carried out the initial surgery
  • Loss of Income – if you need to take additional days off work or if you are unable to return to work due to the surgery negligence from the medical professional who carried out the first procedure, your loss will form part of your breast surgery compensation claims
