Breast implant procedures are now the most common form of cosmetic surgery undertaken in the UK, and while most patients who undergo breast augmentation do so without incident, medical complications can occur. If these avoidable complications do occur either from surgical error or implant defect, it can cause untold stress and trauma in your day to day life and you may be entitled to compensation from the party responsible.

While breast augmentation is a relatively common procedure, it is no less dangerous for the patient and requires a specialist surgical team, suitable implant selection and post-operative care.
If any of these fail, then the consequences can be devastating to the patient and can involve:
Every year thousands of patients are admitted to hospital for cosmetic surgery and surgical reconstruction. Patients place a lot of trust in the plastic surgeons involved and the level of care we receive should be of an exceptionally high standard.
Likewise breast implant manufacturers should ensure their implants are of the highest possible standard, whether based on saline or silicone composition.
Most breast augmentation procedures should also involve an element of psychological care by medical professionals. In the case of cosmetic procedures, this may involve ensuring that any body image or self esteem issues have been evaluated. While in the case of post-mastectomy breast reconstruction, ongoing psychological care should be a part of any treatment plan.
