Bad Breast Augmentations
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), breast augmentations are the most popular cosmetic surgery in America. Over 300,000 women each year undergo surgery to improve the appearance of their breasts. Women often have breast augmentations and breast reductions for both personal and medically necessary reasons. Poor surgical technique and inexperienced surgeons can lead to complications and poor results. Surgical error can increase the possibility of complications including:
- Disproportionate breasts,
- Incorrect breast sizes,
- Excessive / unreasonable scars on the breasts,
- Capsular Contracture (hardening of the breasts),
- Lack of symmetry / asymmetry of the breasts,
- Loss of feeling with the breasts and nipple,
- Nerve damage throughout the breasts,
- Nipple injury,
- Severe Disfigurement.
Bad Breast Augmentation or Bad Reduction Surgery? We will get you Answers.
People who have elected or are required to undergo either a breast augmentation or breast reduction, have done so either wanting to improve their aesthetic appearance or for health related reasons. The last thing these individuals need is complications or to end up worse off than they were when they chose to undergo the original procedure.
Our Pennsylvania plastic surgery attorneys can help you get answers. Of course, a bad result or a complication does not always mean a lawsuit. Only after having your records examined by a competent board certified plastic surgeon can we advise you of your full legal rights and potential for a case. Complications and poor outcomes can be caused by inexperience or negligence. To determine which, a thorough review of the records is absolutely necessary.
Here are a few questions you may have after an elective breast augmentation or breast reduction:
- Was the doctor who performed your procedure qualified or competent to perform the procedure?
- Are you suffering complications, including bleeding, infection, severe, unusual pain, visible or unreasonable scarring?
- Did the procedure (breast augmentation, liposuction, tummy tuck, face lift, eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty (nose job)) result meet your expectations?
- Were you informed of the severe risks, complications and alternatives of your plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery prior to the procedure?
- Did the doctor perform more surgery than you originally agreed?
We can help answer these questions for you through a free consultation.

Thinking About a Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction?
Do your homework: Any woman who decides to undergo plastic surgery or cosmetic surgery, including a breast augmentation, breast reduction, tummy tuck, rhinoplasty (nose job), face lift or eye lid surgery should thoroughly research their physician prior to the surgery being performed. There are many things you can do to ensure that the surgeon you pick is qualified and competent to perform the procedure chosen:
- Check Board Certification: (Are they a board certified plastic surgeon?)
- Check Accreditation: (Is this an accredited surgery center?)
- Check Hospital Privileges (do hospitals allow this doctor to perform this surgery?)
- Check References: (Ask other doctors about him/her)
- Verify His/Her Experience: (research your physician on-line)
