Breast surgery compensation claims

Breast Surgery Compensation Claims

You can make a claim for breast surgery compensation if you feel you have been the victim of surgical negligence or the outcomes were not as agreed.

Breast augmentation surgery, often known as the ‘boob job,’ is one of the most common breast 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 but the majority of breast implant surgery occurs without incident.

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

Breast Augmentation Surgery Claims

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

The Risks with Breast Surgery

  • 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 breast surgery procedures, there are risk of injuries.

However, these risks should be managed and minimised.

If problems arise because of poor management of these risks, or inadequate health and safety duty of care, individuals may have grounds to make a cosmetic surgery compensation claim.

Breast Surgery 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.

How to Make Breast Surgery Claims

If unfortunately you have suffered any of the above issues, or are suffering from any other problem after undergoing breast augmentation surgery, contact our all-female breast surgery negligence experts who will be able to talk to you about your issues and offer information about making 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
