Breast Reduction Surgery Gone Wrong         

When Mammoplasty Negligence Occurs Due to Negligent Cosmetic Surgery Procedures

Breast reduction surgery attempts to reduce the volume and weight of breasts by removing excess breast tissue, skin and fat through incisions made in the lower part of the breasts. The patient’s nipples are then repositioned to fit the new breast shape and once the breasts have been reshaped, the incisions are closed with stitches.

Genes, hormones, body height and weight normally determine the size of a person’s breasts. This is usually proportionate to the person’s body but sometimes breasts can be particularly large and this can cause physical problems like back and neck pain. Breasts that are bigger than normal can also cause emotional difficulties in terms of limited choice of clothes and constrained sporting activity.

Breast reduction surgery or mammoplasty is one of the most popular breast surgeries every year in the UK along with procedures like breast uplift, breast fat transfer and breast enlargement surgery. A mammoplasty is sometimes combined with breast uplift cosmetic surgery

Breast reduction surgery can help women who are unhappy with the physical shape or weight of their breasts by making them smaller and lifting their position. Successful breast reduction cosmetic surgery can also be positive mentally for patients by increasing their self-esteem and ensuring they feel more comfortable with how their body looks.

However, sometimes the cosmetic surgeon or clinic doesn’t meet the professional standards of care and treatment that they should and a breast reduction can go wrong. If that was the case with your mammoplasty then you may be able to obtain financial compensation for the breast reduction gone wrong that you have experienced.

Our team of experienced cosmetic surgery lawyers can guide you through the claims process following a mammoplasty gone wrong. Speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 or request a call back from one of our dedicated breast reduction negligence solicitors to start your claim after a breast reduction has gone wrong.

If your Mammoplasty Procedure Has Gone Wrong, Talk to the Breast Reduction Experts

When a breast reduction procedure goes wrong then the patient may experience a great deal of distress, emotionally and physically.

When a Breast Reduction Goes Wrong

After a breast reduction procedure the patient’s breasts will be bandaged and plastic tubes may be attached to the breasts to drain blood away for a short period. The final size of the modified breasts will not be completely clear to the patient until the swelling subsides which may take several weeks. After a couple of weeks, the patient’s surgical stitches will either dissolve or be removed.

What happens though if you’re undergone a breast reduction and something has gone wrong?  You could be left in a considerable amount of physical and emotional pain. You may also have to undergo remedial surgery to correct the errors your cosmetic surgeon or clinic have made. If this has unfortunately happened to you, you should contact an expert cosmetic medical negligence law firm to claim for compensation.

When breast reduction surgery goes wrong, there are some typical complications that can result including:

  • Breasts remaining ptotic or droopy after the breast reduction surgery
  • Ugly and unsightly scarring
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Asymmetrical nipples, where one nipple appears higher than the other
  • Loss of the nipple itself or loss of nipple sensation

If you have been affected by any of these indications of negligence during or after a breast reduction surgery or other complications when your mammoplasty went wrong, then we may be able to assist you in making a claim for financial compensation. Speak to Cosmetic Surgery Solicitors today on 0800 634 0285 to start a breast reduction surgery claim.
