handled.

The Manchester based law firm, the first to establish a practice specialising in
cosmetic surgery negligence, has revealed that 50 per cent of cosmetic surgery claims
dealt with relate to botched boob jobs.

Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors has seen a particularly significant increase in patient
enquiries seeking claims for bad PIP implants in the last 12 months, consistent with a
slight decline in demand for breast augmentation in 2012 (down 1.6% from the previous
year) following widespread publicity.

The latest figures from The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)
illustrate that 43,172 surgical procedures performed in 2012. Nearly 10,000 women went
under the knife for breast augmentation, confirming that breast implants are still the
most common cosmetic surgery procedure performed in the UK.

, who have successfully recovered over GBP1million compensation for clients following
cosmetic surgery negligence, report that common illustrations encountered of breast
augmentation gone wrong include gross asymmetry, inappropriately placed scarring and nerve
damage.

Commenting on the BAAPS figures, Mike Saul, Partner and Head of Cosmetic Negligence
Claims for Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors said: “In line with the latest BAAPS report which
confirms breast augmentation remains the most common cosmetic surgery procedure, the
majority of the claims we handle are for botched breast augmentation.

“We see patients with a variety of both physical and psychological problems due to
breast implant surgery gone wrong caused by inexperienced or negligent surgeons. We
encounter more and more patients with botched breast enlargement surgery seeking cosmetic
surgery claims who are unable to get the corrective surgery they require following breast
implant surgery negligence.

“The well documented PIP scandal highlighted the prevalence within the industry of lax
regulations in a business where demand is booming.

“Whilst the government review expected in March will be a step in the right direction,
in the meantime we anticipate a steady rise of breast implant surgery claims, often from
patients seduced by smart clinics where sub standard care is common place.

“Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors has an unrivalled reputation for handling breast implant
surgery claims and achieving the best possible outcome for our clients through what is
often a very traumatic and emotional experience for them to deal with.”
