We've got your breast augmentation claim covered
Breast augumentation claims
If you would like to make a claim following a negligent breast enlargement, reduction or lift procedure, our specialist solicitors can help. When you put your trust in a cosmetic surgeon for a breast augmentation, you are entitled to feel significantly more confident about your body coming out of surgery than when you went in. When this does not happen as a result of negligent action, you may be looking for independent advice.
Recovery times following breast surgery can be extensive even when the procedure has gone to plan, but if you feel that the operation was not a success and you did not receive the procedure you were expecting – this could be down to negligent care.
If the surgeon has made a mistake and an error has been made, or perhaps things weren’t explained to you properly, we help you claim the compensation you deserve along, with reimbursing the costs associated in putting the procedure right again.
At Patient Claim Line, our specialist cosmetic claim lawyers have probably seen every possible outcome to a cosmetic procedure – so don’t be afraid to give us a call. We are not only experienced lawyers, we’re medical experts too – and our specialism in medical negligence allows us to fight for justice on your behalf.
Obviously in cosmetic cases (as with medical negligence in general) every case is different and what you could claim for depends on how severe the error is and how it has affected your life.
Claims may include:
- Deflation, excessive swelling and leakages
- Allergic reactions not previously tested for
- Infection to the breast and/or surrounding areas
- Unnecessary or avoidable scarring
- Persistent pain local to the breast area
- Nerve damage
