Breast reduction surgery complications – £85,000

Miss Graham underwent surgery to reduce the size of her breasts. Over the following 18 months she suffered a series of infections and abscesses in both breasts which left her with extensive and unsightly scarring. We obtained evidence from an independent surgeon who confirmed that the surgery had not been performed adequately and that an excessive amount of tissue and skin had been removed. He also advised that when infection developed Miss Graham should have undergone further corrective surgery urgently, which would have improved the cosmetic outcome.
