It is noted that over 30,000 breast implant procedures are performed each year. Different patients decide upon undergoing breast implant surgery for various reasons. Enlarging breasts that are naturally small is common, as some women desire fuller breasts. Many women are unhappy with their breasts and their breast size and feel that breast enlargements will help improve their overall body figure and enhance their body contour. Women may also undergo breast enlargement surgery after pregnancy, weight loss or breast feeding. Ptosis is the process of which women’s breasts start to ‘droop’ due to their age, and the effects of this are worsened during pregnancy. This process can make women feel self conscious of their breasts, and therefore may desire to participate in breast enlargement surgery. Restoring symmetry of the breasts is another common reason for undergoing breast enlargement surgery. Some women’s naturally grow asymmetrical and uneven, and therefore breast enlargement surgery can benefit them. Breast cancer and some other conditions can affect women’s breasts, making them feel uncomfortable and lowering their self esteem. Having a breast enlargement procedure done after having breast cancer can regenerate the shape and fullness of the breasts, resulting in the patient feeling more comfortable in their own skin.

Breast enlargement surgery comes with many risks, and mistakes can happen as a result of negligent surgery. The most common outcomes of a negligent breast enlargement surgery include:
- Breast sagging
- Lop sided, or different sized breasts
- Problems with implant placement, causing one or both breasts to be too high, low or far apart
- Inappropriate scarring above or below the breast fold
- Implants crossing over at the centre of the chest
- ‘Double bubble’ – a term used to describe the breast implants when they have a double mound appearance rather than a single mound.
- Implants falling to the bottom of the breast
These surgical errors can have long lasting traumatic effects and therefore those carrying out cosmetic surgery procedures have a duty of care to ensure your safety and well being. This should be taken extremely seriously, and all responsibility should be taken.
