Breast augmentation 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 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.
