Breast reduction surgery – also known as reduction mammoplasty – involves reducing the weight and volume of breasts, often to help with physical and psychological difficulties.
If you have undergone breast reduction surgery and it was not carried out properly, or you were given sub-standard care, you may be entitled to claim compensation.
A negligent breast reduction can result in a number of complications, and turn what was meant to be a positive change into a medical nightmare. Truth Legal’s expert clinical negligence solicitors can help you to claim compensation for the harm you have suffered.
What is breast reduction negligence?
Breast reduction surgery is carried out by removing skin, glandular tissue and fat from the breasts and then re-shaping them. However, surgical errors in this process can lead to complications.
It can be deeply distressing when a breast reduction goes wrong. Through no fault of your own, a procedure intended to leave you feeling better and emotionally strong has resulted in the complete opposite. The surgical team may have performed the operation incorrectly, or they may not have fully explained the possible implications and risks of the surgery.
A negligent breast reduction may cause:
- Fatty tissue
- Allergic reactions
- Persistent pain
- Deep vein thrombosis
- Problems with the areola or nipples
- Fluid accumulation
- Breast asymmetry
- Bruising or swelling
- Blood clots
Claiming compensation for breast reduction negligence can cover the general pain and suffering that has been caused, as well as financial losses you have incurred as a consequence. These can include care costs, medical and travel expenses, and lost earnings.
Truth Legal can help you to gather evidence of the harm you have suffered, arranging appropriate medical reports to document your injuries. We will also help you to document and claim your other financial losses, though it is important for you to retain any evidence you might have of these.
