There are many reasons why women have breast augmentation surgery. It may simply be to improve appearance, but also could be for health or for reconstructive reasons following breast cancer treatment.
Whatever the reason, the outcome needs to be that the woman feels confident and satisfied. However, if complications do occur, this can have serious physical and mental repercussions.
How can breast augmentation/surgery negligence occur?
Breast augmentation (breast surgery) negligence can come in the form of an error during surgery or through a procedure and its implications not being adequately explained to you. Negligence can include:
- Swelling or deflation
- Blood clots
- Nerve problems
- Abnormal shapes
- Ruptured implant
All of these can be harrowing to deal with as well as causing physical pain and discomfort.
As a result of breast augmentation (breast surgery) negligence, you may be able to claim cosmetic surgery compensation for general damages as well as compensation to cover the cost of any care you require, medical and travel expenses and loss of earnings.
A surgeon is required to explain your procedure and any possible implications before you agree to proceed with an operation, so it is important that you listen and understand this. If you feel the information was not sufficient, or there has been a clinical error during your surgery, you are entitled to seek compensation.
