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.
