Many women don’t have the breasts they would really like. In some cases they are happy with the size but they may not be happy with the shape or appearance. Age and childbirth are just two of the reasons why breasts that used to be quite pert end up looking saggy. Weight loss can also lead to this issue, which is why breast lift surgery is considered by some women who want to regain their looks in this area.
The operation involves getting rid of excess skin, lifting the breasts and repositioning the nipples. Before any such procedure takes place the surgeon should discuss the process with you so you are well aware of what it involves and the potential side effects you might experience. If you opt to have breast lift surgery and you experience problems after the operation, there may be cause to suspect negligence has occurred. This is not always the case – there must be proof of negligence and that the issues you experience are someone else’s fault if you are to bring forward a claim. Generally professional advice is a good idea if you are considering a claim after having gone through this type of operation.
Could you make a claim for compensation in this situation?
There are situations in which you can make a claim for compensation if you have had this procedure and you are now experiencing problems. The surgeon has a duty to inform you of potential issues and complications that could occur prior to the surgery. If this does not happen and you then experience problems you might have a case. In addition issues such as extensive scarring, infections and other complications could lead to stress and upset and these again can be difficult to manage. Put simply, some women do have evidence to support a compensation claim after going through this surgery.
