What Is Breast Enlargement or Augmentation Surgery?
Breast surgery involves inserting an artificial implant under the breast tissue, or alternatively under the chest muscle behind the breast. It is a difficult procedure and without expert care negligence can result in Breast Augmentation Claims.
The breast implant is usually made up of an outer layer of silicone, and are usually filled with silicone gel or salt water. The implants usually last approximately 10 years. The surgeon should have an initial consultation with you. During this consultation the surgeon should discuss the size, shape and type of implants which are most suitable for you.
What Risks are Involved in Breast Enlargement Surgery Leading to Breast Augmentation Claims?
He or she should also discuss the procedure itself and the risk involved. Risks of breast surgery can include:
- Loss of sensation around the breast tissue
More serious risks can include capsular contracture where the scar tissue around the implant can shrink and place the implant under excessive pressure. This eventually causes it to deform. There is also the risk of the implant rupturing. Once an implant ruptures it must be removed straight away.
It is essential that the surgeon discusses these risks with you before your surgery and that you be given the time to consider them before deciding to proceed to the surgery. It is the surgeon’s responsibility to inform you of all the risks of the breast surgery.
The failure to do so is a breach of their duty of care to you, and if this has caused you harm then you may be entitled to make Breast Augmentation Claims.
