Areola or nipple reduction compensation claims
Have you been left with injuries or complications as a result of nipple reduction surgery gone wrong? If you are in this position due to negligence on the part of the surgeon or clinic providing your care, you may be entitled to make a claim for compensation.
While areola or nipple reduction operations normally proceed without complications, the number of cases where this type of surgery has gone wrong is increasing in the UK, and the results can be painful, damaging and embarrassing.
Making a claim for compensation can help you to rebuild your life and prevent others from experiencing the same negligence; it could also help you to pay for restorative surgery, and offer you peace of mind following a distressing experience.
how can Nipple reduction surgery go wrong?
Most patients who undergo areola or nipple reduction surgery fully recover from the procedure within a couple of weeks, but in cases of clinical negligence, a number of problems can arise, including:
- Asymmetry of the areolas or nipples
- Inappropriate scarring
- Insufficient or excessive nipple tissue removal
A botched areola or nipple reduction operation can also result in negative psychological effects related to the patient’s self-esteem and confidence.

SURGEONS’ AND CLINICS’ DUTY OF CARE
Although nipple reduction surgery is seen as a straightforward procedure, there is inevitably a certain degree of risk involved, meaning surgeons have a duty of care to ensure patients’ safety and wellbeing at every stage of the process.
Because substandard care can result in physical and psychological damage to the patient, clinics and surgeons are not only responsible for minimising preventable risks, but also for informing patients about any unavoidable complications to help them make an informed decision.
If you feel that your clinic or surgeon has not fulfilled this duty of care, you may be eligible to make a claim for compensation.
