Compensation for Breast Implants Toxicity Sickness

When it comes to improving self-esteem, most women will opt for breast augmentation surgery to increase their chest size. Quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery across the UK, the practice of breast augmentation is becoming increasingly common and safer for most regular women to use.

Unfortunately, one element of the surgery which cannot be refined is the quality of the implant that is inserted into the body and it is this which has sparked debate in recent months as it has been uncovered that many women have been implanted with silicone implants which are potentially dangerous to their health.

If you have recently received breast augmentation surgery and your implants have been found to contain a dangerous compound of silicone, then you could be eligible to make a compensation claim to cover any costs or damages that you have incurred as a result. 

How can Breast Implants be toxic?

Although breast augmentation is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery within the UK, it is certainly not without risk, and one of the major problems with this market is that due to the high demand there are constantly newer, cheaper options becoming available. Unfortunately, in some situations cost-cutting measures are put in place to reduce the cost of breast surgery and as a result the quality and standard of the silicone within the breast implant can be put at risk.

This is evident through the recent court cases regarding PIP implants where thousands of women were discovered to have been given breast implants which contained a cheap industrial grade silicone rather than a more expensive, safer option which is traditionally used for implants. The problem here is that if the implant were to leak or explode, it could potentially fill the body with a dangerous and poisonous chemical leading to numerous injuries. 

Who can I make a claim against?

If you have been the victim of a faulty breast implant then you could be eligible to make a claim against the surgeon who performed your surgery. In addition, if your injuries are caused by the implant directly then your claim could be lodged against the company who manufactured the implant and provided it to your surgeon.
