Breast implants, for example those by Mentor, have been around for a long time, some with highly publicised problems involving recalls. However, generally they are safe, and when used correctly can bring confidence back to women who have suffered as a result of mastectomy. They are most widely used in reconstructive surgery when there has been damage, trauma or removal of the breast. However, they are also used electively.
Unfortunately, because new products are coming on to the market every once in a while, and because their success largely depends on the attending doctors, sometimes things go wrong with implants. Issues are not limited to, but can include:
- Capsular Contradiction – where an inappropriate implant size has been used
- Lumps and hardening
- Fluid collection
- Rupture or deflation
- Slipping or bad placement
- Back pain
- Muscle pain
- Achy or swollen joints
- Skin rashes

Independent reviews from our CLIENTS
I am writing to you personally to say thank you to Attwood's for a job well done with my recent claims. It initially started out as one claim, but eventually became a little more complicated when another was added following a review of my condition by one of your dental experts. Throughout the last couple of years as the claim has progressed I have been fully supported by your colleague Luke Taylor. I have thanked him personally for all the good work and support he gave me over the last couple of years, it was quite a journey for both of us but with the right outcome, but I just wanted to also highlight to yourself the good service and support he provided me with. It was very much needed and appreciated. He has always been very professional and the advice he has given has always been with real feeling and thought, and not the "just my job" attitude. Even when I was very wary of what to do next, he always explained it in simple terms for me understand and move forward. If I ever need similar help in the future, your company will be the first I contact. With my sincere appreciation and regards.
I contacted Attwood Solicitors requesting that they represent me. Their response to date has been way beyond my expectations . They have provided a comprehensive and professional service at every stage, with a dedicated member of staff as my contact.
All my queries and issues have been resolved very efficiently and you have always contacted me back when promised. I have certainty felt you have been acting on my behalf and would like to thank you for that. Once again we would like to convey our sincere thanks to you and would have no reservations recommending you to anyone else – you have been a star
